What’s in a name? When it comes to naming your new pet, you very often choose a name which means something or one that you like.
You rarely think about what comes with a name, well, now you can thanks to new research out this week which aims to help the more superstitious pet owner by revealing the top 10 unluckiest cat names which left their owners footing a bill of around £475 (or would have, had they not had pet insurance!).
The findings, released by the pet insurance team at Co-op Insurance tell us cats named Oscar are more unlucky than cats named George, and found themselves suffering from road traffic accidents, gastrointestinal disorders and mouth and oral problems.
Top 10 Unluckiest Cat Names
Speaking of the claims data findings, David Hampson, Head of Pet Insurance at the Co-op, said: “Any pet can come with its fair share of misfortune, landing you with an unexpected trip to the vets or causing mischief around the house, however based on our claims data Charlie and Oscar certainly aren’t the luckiest names you can give your pet.
“Regardless of the name of your pet, making sure you have a pet insurance policy in place to cover these eventualities can be the best way to protect them and avoid unwanted vet’s bills, or ongoing treatments for life.”
What’s in a name? Quite a lot by the sounds of it.
