I have a confession. Like most people on the internet, I have the entirety of human knowledge at my fingertips, and I usually find myself using it to watch cute pet videos. Whenever I find myself sucked into the videos’ never ending comments section, I can’t help but notice one piece of advice from well-intentioned […] The post Pet Insurance: Responsible Planning or Total Scam'  appeared first on My Money Wizard. ...
