The Importance of Pets in a Happy Home

Sometimes there is nothing quite like walking through your front door knowing that you have got the place to yourself. There is no one there to ask you ‘do you know where this is?’, no one slamming a door, no one shouting or screaming. Just you, your space, your noise, your choice.

However, there is also nothing quite like opening that front door after a stressful day and being greeted by a familiar furry face who could not be more happy to see you if they tried all week!

Pets give companionship, unconditional love and loyalty but best of all they give that add special something to a household that nothing else can.

Whether you have a traditional goldfish in a bowl or you share your sofa with a Great Dane, if you love animals then you will want to take care of them. Replacing chewed up cushions and scratched skirting boards are costs that can be delayed until the budget allows you to buy new ones but unfortunately an unexpected trip to the vet can leave you with a large bill that just simply cannot be avoided. If you haven’t budgeted for it either then you could find yourself in a very tricky situation.

Having pet insurance is no different from having contents or car insurance and if it gives you peace of mind at a time that could be quite emotional?

Getting a pet insurance quote is really easy and there are plenty of insurers who offer a range of policies that suit your needs. More Than is a great example and their policies can cover a cats and dogs with varying levels of cover.

It is always important to choose the right policy for your pet and to know that you have got their health and wellbeing covered.

As with the animals themselves, pet insurance comes in all shapes and sizes so you can choose whether to cover your best friend for accidents only or cover them with the highest level possiblewhere up to £12,000 of vet treatment for both accidents and illness is covered every year with More Than. You can find out more about this or view the full list of More Than pet insurance quotes online.

You also need to make sure that you do everything you can to integrate a pet into your family and ensure it gets all the love and attention which it needs. This means giving it a name that it will respond to and providing it with its own little possessions in your household – such as a water bowl, food bowl, bed and a few toys.

These are all things you’ll need to consider carefully and you may want to consult online resources for advice on the best toys or style of bed. You can eve research popular pet names if you’re stuck on what to call your pooch or kitty with this post on The Guardian highlighting ‘Sherlock’, ‘Misty’, ‘Clio’, ‘Poppy’ and ‘Alfie’ as popular names for either dogs or cats, or both!
