Now that is weird. (Cat breeds listed on site.)

So I'm looking at various pet insurance sites, comparing plans. And I go to PetsHealth's site and start filling out information for a quote.

They have two choices, purebred or mixed. Okay, so I click "mixed" for Remy and a list of choices drop down for me to choose from.

The choices are:

Alley cat
American Longhair
Domestic Longhair
Domestic Mediumhair
Mixed cat

. . . . . what? Where's the domestic shorthair? And calico made the list? Alley cat? What?

LOL...that's funny. :D

DSH is probably the most common of them all. Maybe that's what they are calling an alley cat. :rolleyes:

Maybe they use it to descriminate because "alley cats" have had a tough life and might be prone to health problems? More likely sounds like someone just felt like saying alley cat :D :p Google is amazing.

I would maybe call the insurnace company and see what they have to say!
