Kitties, do you know what an ultra-sound is? I need to get one done on Thursday. Did you know that an ultrasound on kitties costs about A$600... and that drip that was given to me lately, costed another A$400... Mama says it is only a small cost, because what is most important to her is that I am healthy and well.
My humans seem rather smug about the fact that they had taken up the ‘Pet Insurance’ for me; otherwise- these costs would have still incurred, but it would have been much more difficult for my humans to get by... Just to satisfy my kitty curiosity- what about you kitties though? Do you have a health insurance, too?
If you are interested to know or considering it- my insurance costs my humans a A$34 a month which is A$408 a year and includes treatment costs up to A$12,000 in a year- including routine check-ups, costs of ‘revolution’, vaccination (A$70 a year) and grooming. They pay for the expenses using their card and the insurance company reimburses them in a few weeks. Mama will be happy to advise if your humans are considering taking one up for you- she only knows about Australian options, but is eager to help if you’d need advise...
I hear their card expenses are EXPLODING LOUDLY till the insurance company pays them back in a few weeks, but it is a ‘temporary’ thing and you kitties need not worry... phew!
On a related note- those green papers seem powerful; I have a feeling that those not exactly the kinds of papers kitties ‘play’ with... or do they? Have any of you kitties played with these green papers and want to share the story?
