Pets Best Insurance launched a low-premium, illness-only cat insurance plan targeted at budget-conscious cat owners, the Boise, Idaho, company reported today.

The cat health plan does not cover accidents but does provide coverage of up to $4,000 annually and $10,000 over a cat's lifetime.

An entry-level pet insurance plan starts at under $4 a month, the company reported. A quote from the company's website for a $1,000 deductible, 70% reimbursement, illness-only policy for a 1-year-old, mixed-breed cat in California ran $2.11 a month.

Hmmm, will have to look it up and check it out. I wonder, does it keep going up as your cat ages like the other ones?? I know a few years ago I spent $750 on bladder surgery for one of my boys, so it probably would cost even more now. May be worth looking into. Thanks for the information.
