A-Z Blogging Challenge: I

Hi everyone! Today is day I of the A-Z Blogging Challenge. I is for Insurance. If I only had one or two cats, I would buy them insurance, but I can’t afford it for my entire crew. There are several companies offering pet insurance now  and they all have their pros and cons. Here are two links to websites that break them down. Consumeradvocate  and Top10Pet Insurance

You have seen Trouble in “stuff” and “things”, she also gets into “odds and ends”.

XMAS Dolly ‘s Wordless Wednesday


  1. Trouble looks like she will find what she is looking for.
    We feel the same way about insurance. With a 6 cat family we cannot afford it

  2. My human should really get insurance for me – it’s too late for Boodie and Binga, because they’re ancient.

  3. Insurance seems like a good idea………..vet bills can surely mount up just like people medical bills!

  4. I love Trouble. I love her name. I love black kitties.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday, Ellen. Scritches to all the kitties. ♥

  5. The vet staff tried to sell me on their wellness plan but our cats our ancient, too. And the so-called deals included a flea and tick prevention we don’t need. But I think insurance can be a good idea.

  6. I’m not insured butt I do haf a savings account of my very own fur the Vetman’s bills

  7. Mom has done some research into pet insurance, but she hasn’t found one yet that seems to be of benefit. She and Dad try to allot a certain amount of their monthly budget for extraordinary expenses, and that helps, but it never seems to be enough for a big problem.

    Happy Wednesday.

  8. trouble. we hope ya find sum grate stuff N thingz in de oddz N endz bin 😉 ♥♥

  9. Sounds like there is ‘Trouble’ everywhere at your house – MOL! I wish they would do group rates on pet health insurance – we should all start a business doing that – we’d make millions – or maybe thousands? MOL!

  10. Thank you for the information. I’ve thought about getting insurance but haven’t done so.
    Trouble is such a cutie pie 🙂

  11. We only had insurance for a pet once, the free trial that we got with Luke when we adopted him from the rescue.
    Insurance always seems like gambling to me – sometimes you pay a lot of money and never need it; or it doesn’t cover the things you need it to.
    Trouble, you just get into everything now, don’t you? 🙂

    1. I have talked to several people and some love it and some don’t think it is worth it.

  12. Trouble is too funny!
    I had Eric and Flynn insured, but when they reached 8 years the price about quadrupled so I cancelled it. I put the money I would have been paying into a savings account instead.
    I know the money I saved didn’t cover Flynn’s very high vet bills in his last 2 years, but I am sure the insurance wouldn’t have continued to keep paying for that long either, and most likely have said they couldn’t cover him after a year. That is what happened when I had a claim for my horse when he was older.

  13. Trouble is just the best. We just loved that photo. Great information for pet owners about insurance. It’s always great to just look into it. Thanks for sharing the information. Have a fantastic day.

  14. Oh, that Trouble!

    Our mom considered insurance many years ago but the cost was prohibitive for the lot of us. She read somewhere that instead of paying premiums, it made more sense to just set aside a monthly amount for what could be used as a vet fund.

  15. Pet insurance, like that for people, is expensive if it’s going to really do a lot of good. Happy Wednesday!

  16. I wonder what Trouble is looking for besides trouble. MOL! TW is gonna bookmark those sites cos she wants to get insurance if she ever got another cat in her life. She’d get me insurance but she thinks I’m too old. Pfft! She also thinks she needs insurance against me.

  17. Wow, REALLY? I had no idea they sold pet insurance. Shows you I’ve been living under a rock for sure… dang. I guess if I had a young dog I’d consider it, but I got my lab from a shelter and I don’t even know how old he is. He’s a great watch dog for me and me being disabled I feel much more comfortable since Charlie moved in. Have a great day!

  18. I remember years ago talking about getting a dog and saying I didn’t know whether I’d be able to afford insurance (at the time I didn’t realise it was only going to be £8 per month). I got told if you can’t afford insurance, you can’t afford a pet and I realised it was true.
    P.S I got the dog and the insurance

  19. Pet insurance can be such a wonderful thing, but I am sort of in the same boat as you. I have looked into pet insurance on many occasions, but now that I have 4 cats and a dog, the cost of it all seems a bit daunting. Instead, I try to always tuck away special savings for my furbabies, in case of emergencies. Having these savings tucked away really helped when pup Astrid had to have her toe/tumor removed back in 2017.
