Isn’t it Time You Invested in Cat Insurance?

Around 58% of Kiwis own pets. However, rather than being a nation of dog owners, we’re a nation of cat owners with 45% of us owning one or more cats as compared to 31% of us who own dogs. As you can imagine, cat and kitten ownership translates to millions of dollars being spent each year on looking after our furry feline friends, with owners splashing out on gourmet food, beds and all kinds of treats. But how many cat owners allocate part of their budget to invest in cat insurance?

Why Pet Insurance for Cats is Important

We’ve all heard the saying that ‘A cat has nine lives’, but if you’re an owner, you’ll know how quickly these lives can be used up. They’re always out exploring, seeing how high they can climb, racing traffic, and doing what inquisitive cats do. So, as you can see, while insurance for cats may seem like quite a novel idea, it can also prove to be extremely useful. Responsible cat owners will want to feel confident that you can cover veterinary bills should your precious pussy be involved in an accident or develop an illness that needs intensive treatment – and that’s where Petplan can help.

We’ve been around in New Zealand since 2004 and have looked after the nation’s cats and their owners with the same care and attention as we give to our own pets.
