As first-time cat owners, Brittany Mitchell and her husband were quite surprised at the reaction their newly adopted black cat, Henry, had when he was first introduced to their dog, Tucker.

“We have never had a cat before,” says Brittany. “We did it totally wrong, we sat him down and introduced him to our dog and Henry looked at Tucker and just started hissing. We were just like, ‘Whoa!’ He seemed like this sweet little thing and here he is hissing like crazy,” she Brittany. “We thought Henry Hissinger sounded funny.”

“We just decided we’d be really responsible and get pet insurance and its been the best decision we ever made,” she says. “It’s more than paid for itself!”
