We Provide The Best Cat Insurance in Australia

For many years cats had a bad rap for being aloof creatures that merely tolerate humans for feeding time, but in the last couple of years we have really seen an explosion of ‘cat people’, and we couldn’t be happier that they are finally receiving the recognition that they deserve.

When you adopt a cat or kitten you are guaranteed that your life will never be quite the same – you’ll spend many hours trying to get your cat’s attention each day; in fact, we’ve found that cats tend to rearrange your life somewhat and there is no better feeling.

Sure, they may give you a loving paw-nudge in the morning when they are hungry, ignore you when they know you want love and may not be quite as exuberant as dogs, but the truth is that cats are just as special. That’s why at Petplan we believe in offering cats and kittens the same high-quality pet insurance that we do for dogs all over the country.

What Are Our Cat Insurance Policies?

One of the main reasons that more people in the country don’t have cats is that they are concerned about the expense of vet bills. That’s why we believe in providing a variety of different policies for our clients to choose from that will suit not just their budgets but also their individual animals.

We offer a variety of pet cat insurance in Australia:

12 Months Essential

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’.
