A low cover and cheap cat insurance policy will cover your cat for accidents, which can include car accidents, dog attacks and snake bites.
More comprehensive cat insurance policies can help pay for vet bills related to illnesses. Most will cover cancer treatment, eye and ear conditions, diabetes and more.

We looked at 96 different breeds and calculated that cat insurance costs around $25 (for an accident-only policy), $40 (for accident and illness) and $46 (for comprehensive) a month.
