    Pet insurance- do you have it?

    I don't know if I really need kitten insurance but I wanted to ask the pros LOL. Do you have it? Would you suggest it? What plans are best? I've been doing a lot of reading but I'm still not sure. Especially when there is no routine coverage.... that seems silly to me. Help!

    How can I keep my beloved PaulCat and darling (yet allergic) boyfriend?

    My partner and I are considering moving in together but there is one major hiccup in these plans; he's allergic to my cat. Because it has to do with an enzyme in the saliva it's almost worse that there's no fur involved. How can I have the best of both worlds?; keeping my commitment to both of...
