I know that in the past whenever we’ve priced or purchased renters insurance they always asked if we had pets, and if so what specific type and breed the pets were. Whenever I’ve asked why they say it’s because some breeds are more aggressive and they either charge you more for the insurance or won’t insure you at all. When we got our travel trailer we discovered that we didn’t need to get special insurance for it, we only needed to register it. My parents have an mobile home, the kind of rv that you drive. Insurance is required for it, presumably because it has a motor. In the back of my mind since it’s called a mobile home I wondered if they’d ask about pets. I did ask my Dad and he said that they never have been. So do the insurance companies not worry about people traveling with their aggressive pets? Or do they perhaps assume that people with an rv are retired and maybe have an immediate annuity? Or maybe they just feel that aggressive pets don’t travel, or that they’re only aggressive in a regular home. Any thoughts?
Our two cats are messy eaters. They always drop food on the floor when they’re eating. I got tired of it tracking all over the place so I decided to put something under the bowl to catch the food. I used a big square plastic tray with a low lip. Now when they drop food onto the tray when they’re eating it doesn’t go all over the floor. Do your cats drop food on the floor when they eat?
One of the things that amuses everyone in our house is watching the cats play. We love to see them running and jumping around. My oldest son recently wondered, aloud, what it would be like if there was a little track for cats where they could have track and field events for cats. They’d be a natural for the long jump, I’ve seen my cat jump more than halfway across the room from the chair to the table. And we’ve all seen when cats get a burst of energy, that’d be great for short distance competition. What event do you think your cat would do best in?
Our cat is fascinated by movement. We once took the clock off of the wall to put a new battery in it. He got a big kick out of it and was swatting at the second hand. Since cats don’t wear citizen watches, or any watches, we know he wasn’t interested in knowing the time. That clock was almost silent, so we know it wasn’t the ticking sound. Plus, there was the whole swatting thing that gave his interest in movement away. is your cat interested in fine motor movement such as the second hand of a clock?
