Older cats need just as much love today as they did when they were cute little kittens. That’s why we offer a choice of insurance cover levels to meet your needs. All of our Petwise owners know that love lasts a lifetime, which is why we offer specialist cover to help protect your cat during their senior years.

Each level of cover is designed with you and your senior cat in mind. With a choice of two insurance cover types, (Lifetime and Time Limited) and seven choices for vet fees, we are confident you’ll find a policy that is right for you. We want to make things easy, so you can enjoy life with your amazing furry companion.

To provide the best service that we can and meet the needs of our customers effectively, we have taken the decision to pause new business sales of our policies for a short period.

During this time, we will be looking to review and enhance our product offerings. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. If you already have a policy with us your cover will continue as normal.

Cat insurance cover levels overview

Why choose Petwise senior cat insurance?

Regardless of age, all cats get into scrapes and, like us humans, an ageing cat can develop age related illnesses and become more susceptible to disease.

A carefully selected insurance policy, which covers these eventualities, can be a welcome safety net for those unforeseen accidents and illnesses and can help provide a great quality of life without compromise for your cat, as they age.

Some of our benefits include:

Do you have an upper age limit? 

The exceptional care we give our animals these days’ means that they are living longer which is why it’s even more important to consider insuring your pet right through to their golden years.

“Cats come and go without ever leaving”

Petwise believes owning a cat is a lifelong responsibility, which is why there is no upper age limit on any of our policies! So whether your cat is seven or 17, we’ll keep your partnership covered the whole way.

If you took your policy out before 7th April 2021 your cover and the policy benefits and exclusions will differ from those displayed above. Please CLICK HERE to access your policy documents.
