Just think, if you make the grade, every day could be a ‘Hello Kitty’ type of day!

JustCats also has a very different way of accommodating their patients and their humans than what you are probably used to.  They have a vet care ‘plans’ for their clients.  As seen here, JustCats has designed two different plans to fit your budget.

The great part is that  you can book your pet as often as you like at their facility and only pay for medications or treatments as required.  This means that your feline family will have regular check-ups, a fantastic way to keep them around longer.  Annual vaccinations are included as well, and their 12-month plans start at about $19.00 per month.

This plan certainly guarantees veterinarians built-in customers, and the vets will also get to know their clients quite well.  Maybe it will be an idea that ‘cat-ches’ on!
