Does Your Cat Have One of the Top Ten Unluckiest Pet Names?


Does your furriest friend seem to always be down on his luck? Is he accident-prone, frequently under-the-weather or eating something he shouldn’t?

Since St. Patty’s Day just passed (and in the spirit of fun!), PetPlan Pet Insurance sorted through half a million claims records and found the names of cats that visited the veterinarian most often. Here’s how some popular (but unlucky) pets placed:

Just when this dog-eat-dog world has handed you all the poop you can take, it's time to walk the dog. Or wash the dog. Or feed the dog. You get the idea. So welcome to the world of easy-to-care-for cats. Entertainment comes bundled in a furry, huggable, self-cleaning cat who won't beg for your food. In his eyes, you don't eat well enough anyway. Just keep a laser pen handy, sit back and wait for the fun to begin! Cats...ya gotta love 'em.
