Cats really are incredible creatures - although we often think of them as a common pet, their skills and natural abilities go far beyond what we might think. Sure, it’s astounding to see them land on all fours, or leap up a six-foot fence in a single bound, but did you know that cats roughly spend just three years of their life awake? Or, rather conversely, that on average cats can run 3mph faster than Usain Bolt? No? Well, that’s why Petplan has decided to investigate world records set by cats. Take a look at this list and prepare to be amazed.
Epilepsy is a chronic condition that causes repeated seizures, and is the most common neurological disorder in dogs.

If you have ever uncovered an unknown kitty stalking the streets or gracing your garden, how would you react to it? On first impressions, it is an important step to figure out if this lone feline is a stray or a feral; though they all hail from domestic cats, there are key differences in their feelings towards humans and the approaches to aid them. In this article, Petplan take a look at the important difference between stray and feral felines, including physical and behavioural characteristics, which can help you to potentially decipher if a cat is in need of rescue.
Our pets are many things to us, our best friends, our companions, and members of our family. But what happens when they need some help themselves? Pets often need to see a vet at least once in their lifetime, whether it’s for routine mandatory check-up, short-term illness or an unfortunate accident. Here at Petplan we want to take a moment to recognise and celebrate the exceptional work of vets, and show our gratitude to those that work tirelessly to maintain our pet’s health.
We are pet specialists and have an unrivaled knowledge of pet health and unlike many other insurers.
That's why we've designed our policies to cover as many conditions as possible, and are able to pay 97% of all the claims we receive.
