Does your cat have insurance? Having an active cat insurance policy can be helpful for pet parents.  Here are four reasons why.

Cats Get Sick

That's right, cats get sick just like humans do. If you're not sure whether or not your cat is sick, you can look for signs such as vomiting or diarrhea. Regardless, if you notice that your cat is showing signs of irritation frequently, you should immediately seek medical attention. It's also worth noting that cats can have allergies. Common allergens include dairy products, fleas, and household cleaning chemicals. Testing for and treating these can be expensive. Fortunately, cat insurance can help.


Cats sleep alot, but when they're not sleeping, you can find them exploring. Cats do strange things, and sometimes, these feats of entertainment can result in an injury. If your cat suffers injuries like broken bones, torn nails, or lacerations, you need to seek medical help. Part of pet care is ensuring that your furry friend is healthy and safe. Accidents sometimes happen, but treating the injuries that often come as a result is crucial to all pet health.

It Can Help Protect your Investment 

When you move into a new apartment or house, you purchase renter or homeowner insurance. These things protect you -- and your assets -- in the event of something tragic happening. 

Vet bills

Cat insurance can be far less expensive than vet bills. Having an active cat insurance policy can ultimately help provide pet parents with financial reimbursement for covered and approved claims.2
