When Erin Radford’s husband, Johnny Bailey, saw a news story on television about pet insurance, his ears perked up. Soon, their cat, Boogey, perked up, as well.
“The story talked about people with pets that got illnesses, and the family couldn’t come up with the money for the operation,” Radford said. “So, the family had to figure out how to pay for it or have the pet put to sleep. My husband sort of freaked out and said, ‘We have to get pet insurance.’”
