Pet insurance guide for cat owners

Why is cat insurance important?

Just like us, cats and kittens fall ill and have accidents.

Luckily, as we routinely see on TV, vets can do so much more to help sick and injured cats. But there’s no NHS for pets and TV programmes rarely highlight the associated costs of treatment.

Pet insurance helps owners budget for unexpected vet’s fees. This is usually the reason owners choose to insure their cat(s) and is increasingly important in the current economic climate.

Cat insurance policies can also cover a range of other pet related risks including help to find a lost or stray cat, recompense in the event of a cat’s death or loss, the costs of homecare or cattery fees if the owner is ill and several other situations.
