cat-petfirst-infographic-(1).jpgWith a population of approximately 76.5 million cats, the U.S. has more felines than any other single country in the world. Luckily, many of those cats have forever homes, but do they have insurance? You may think that cat insurance costs too much to be worth it, but these four reasons may just convince you otherwise.

Cats get sick

That’s right, cats get sick just like humans do. If you’re not sure whether or not your cat is sick, you can look for signs such as vomiting or diarrhea, which can allude to small problems or act signs of bigger issues. Regardless, if you notice that your cat is showing signs of irritation frequently, you should immediately seek medical attention. It’s also worth noting that cats can have allergies. Common allergens include dairy products, fleas, and household cleaning chemicals. Testing for and treating these can be expensive. Fortunately, pet insurance can help.


Cats sleep for an average of 16 hours every day, but when they’re not sleeping, you can find them pulling some pretty ridiculous stunts. Cats do weird things, and sometimes, these adorable feats of entertainment can result in an injury. If your cat suffers injuries like broken bones, torn nails, or lacerations, you need to seek medical help. Part of pet care is ensuring that your furry friend is healthy and safe. Accidents sometimes happen, but treating the injuries that often come as a result is crucial to all pet health.

It’s a responsible thing to do

When you move into a new apartment or house, you purchase renter or homeowner insurance. These things protect you — and your assets — in the event of something tragic happening. Similarly, insurance for pets protects them in the event of an injury or illness. You have health insurance to help carry the cost of doctor and hospital visits, and pet insurance can do the same with vet visits.

Vet bills

Cat insurance costs a good amount of money, but your vet bills will undoubtedly cost more. Not only that, but they can come at unexpected times and have a significant impact on your finances. The United States spends approximately $15.42 billion on vet care annually, and pet insurance can help you reduce the amount of that cost that comes directly out of your wallet. Pet insurance is just as important as your health insurance. Knowing that your feline friend will be healthy and safe is well worth the cost.
