#SoCS March 23/19 – The Last Piece Of Mail I Received

Linda’s SoCS Prompt this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “the last piece of mail you received.” Talk about the subject of the last piece of physical mail you received, i.e. a gas bill–talk about gas, not the bill itself. Have fun!

Hmmm… it’s not often I get mail nowadays. Most of my bank statements and bills are online, as I hate to throw so much paper away!

However, there are some things that are inevitable… Bills.

And Insurance renewals.

The last piece of physical mail I received was a renewal reminder for my cat, Sonu Singh. And his Pet insurance premium.

We are lucky to be blessed with a beautiful, healthy kitty who has just celebrated his 5th birthday with us too.

And his health means that we haven’t ever had to use the insurance, but is’s a ‘just in case’ scenario, as it is for all insurance.

He’s a fully fledged member of the family so he deserves to be looked after, just right too!

But the premiums! Oh my!

It went up by £100 just in a year, and that is even though we haven’t claimed ever.

Apparently it’s his age.

Seriously? He’s 5! And a house cat, at that.

Most insurers mention the 10 year mark as a time you would start to see rises, but not our company.

Suffice to say, we found another insurer, at a fraction of the cost, and the same piece of mind regarding our fur baby.

We love you Sonu Singh!

    I had no idea there was pet insurance. Good thing you now have peace of mind at a reasonable rate!

    I’m happy you have Mr. Singh. Insurance rates just keep on rising, but at least you have that peace of mind.

    I wish Pet insurance had been a thing back when my cat went into renal failure. Such a hard memory.

    Hope you have also thought about a insurance for the feathered family members, and a deal with Sonu’s insurance, when you got too much hunger. 😉 Best wishes for a nice weekend, Sis! Michael

    Online banking is wonderful. Isn’t it? But watching the amount flying away with only a few mouse clicks puts down the feeling. 😉

    I love that pet insurance is a thing now. I wasn’t able to get it on my last cat, an adult rescue. I’m still paying off the loan I had to get to try to save his life. A £100 increase is ridiculous, and I’m glad you found cheaper coverage, as you say, just in case.

    As many cats as we’ve had over the years, we’ve never bought pet insurance. Sometimes I think we should have.

    What is a cat renewal? Do you have to register your pets where you live?

    Oh, well, insurance costs only go up and it seems the periods are getting shorter and shorter.
