how much a month does everyone pay for pet insurance for there cats??? i have an indoor cat who is 3 but trying to decide if i should get insurance for her or just open an savings account and put a bit away each month so if anything was to happen (touch wood it dosnt and she lives till i die) then i have a nest egg to pay for vets. xx

I've looked into this a bit and argos do one for around a fiver a month that seems quite reasonable- you can get an online quote so maybe try there? xx

It's hard to say really isn't, you could have a cat that never has any problems ever in which case the bank account would be great, but then you could have a cat that gets hit by anything moving, catches every disease going, then of course, the insurance will be your saviour.

I pay £5.66 (I think it is) a month for the top pet insurance polocy - covers my cat if the illness lasts over a year; cattery fees, etc, etc.... that's from ASDA and I got £20 Quidco cashback, too....

Worth it for me, as if anything happened to either of my cats, vets bills are generally astronomical. I can afford a fiver a month, but trying to find £1000 if something happens would be a nightmare...

A friends cat had to have chemo a couple of years ago, their total bill was over £5000, they were insured at the time.

My three British Shorthair cats (all indoor cats) are insured with PetPlan, it costs roughly ££8 per cat each month. I am probably going to go elsewhere once the policies end though as PetPlan is a bit expensive.

I wouldn't pay thousands for a cat *shrugs*. But I'm not that cruel either.

woah! £15 for a 5yr old is mad!

I also have a british lue shorthair who is now knocking on a fair bit, originally insured by 'whiskers' we then moved to direct line. they pais up with NO HASSLE on every claim and are so very very helpful. was being charge £17 until abt 2months ago when we joined my sisters persion onto the policy and its now £20 for the pair per month! we reg'd both at one address, and at the time DLine had a 12month for price of ten offer going.. id deffo recommend them. a lot of cheaper insurances dont pay up too easily. excess id £50..used to be 27 when we first started out!

My indor cat had an accident with a door...chopped off her own tail and had to have it amputated a couple of inches above that. I am insured through tesco and its roughly £6 per mth.

forgot to say, always read reviews before signing up.

mine is an indoor cat too- a bit of a cursed critter cos we have a 'major' incident nearly every year where the vets bill exceeds £500!..

ofcourse, it's claimed and they have always paid up no probs

i'd definately recommend the insurance, not the putting dosh into savings account thing.
