Cat And Kitten Insurance

Giving a kitten or cat a new home is one of the most exciting and rewarding commitments you can make and has positive benefits for every member of the family.

Younger cats are typically more at risk during the formative months as they learn about their new surroundings and establish their boundaries. Most owners will agree that a cat’s inquisitive nature can sometimes lead them into the occasional scrape and the costs of veterinary treatment to get them back to full health can easily escalate. With a Petplan insurance policy owners can take a back seat and enjoy a wide range of benefits for their ‘four legged friend’.

Is insurance really necessary?

Advances in veterinary medicine have given vets access to new diagnostic procedures to help treat our animals when needed. This is good news for the welfare of our much loved kittens and cats but the costs of diagnosis alone can quickly run into many hundreds of pounds.

Kitten insurance policies will provide cover from the tender age of just 8 weeks (or 6 weeks if rehomed or purchased from an approved Petplan breeder) which can be a vulnerable time for your kitten. Whether you've just introduced your kitten into their new surroundings or they're a few months into finding their feet, your policy can help cover the cost of treatment if things go wrong.

What is Covered For Life™?

As the Pet People we understand that owners may have different requirements from their cat and kitten insurance policies and so we have developed two levels of ‘genuine’ lifetime cover to offer you greater flexibility. Covered For Life™ is a type of policy that provides ongoing cover to protect you against the costs of treatment for long-term illnesses and conditions. With annual vet fees that renew each year the policy is in force and a wealth of other benefits, we are sure you can find a policy to suit your needs.

Cat insurance with up to £12,000 vet fees cover

Our comprehensive Petplan Ultimate insurance policy provides up to £12,000 of vet fees per year and offers cover for complementary treatment such as hydrotherapy and acupuncture of up to £2,000 per year. If your cat or kitten goes missing, this plan will help cover the cost of advertising and reward for it’s safe return. Petplan will also contribute to the cost of boarding your cat at a licensed cattery while you are in hospital for unexpected visits during the policy year.

Petplan Essential Insurance

Petplan Essential has been designed for cat and kitten owners who require assistance to cover the cost of veterinary fees to treat injuries or short-term illnesses. This policy covers up to £3,000 per condition for a period of 12 months, following the condition first being noticed. Unlike some other 12-month cat insurance policies, should your vet recommend treatment for behavioural-related conditions or specialist treatment such as physiotherapy our Essential plan will provide you with the cover you need - as long as the vet carries out the treatment.
