Why you should insure your cat

There are many good reasons. Here are just a few...

Because you’ve made them part of your family

And it goes without saying that you would do anything to get them better if they were injured or unwell.

We know that, as caring parents, you value your cats’ health and ensure they are always well looked after. Unfortunately, the fact is that no matter how well you look after them, most cats will require veterinary treatment at some stage.

There is no Medicare for pets

The good news is that vet care has advanced significantly over the past decade.

Unfortunately, the cost of vet treatment has also risen significantly and there is no Medicare for pets, so when anything happens to your cat, you will need to foot the entire bill.

It can save your pet’s life

Pet insurance is a way to protect both you and your pet from unexpected vet bills. There is no need for your cat to suffer if veterinary care is too pricey, and no difficult decisions for you to make other than getting them the care they deserve.

Above all, pet insurance will provide you with the security that you will never have to choose between money and the life of your beloved cat.

Cat Insurance

The sound of a content purr on your lap while you are watching TV or the silent jump on to your bed  to curl up with you for the night or the playful tap of a paw…anyone who has ever owned a cat will know exactly what makes them so special to us!

We get this special connection as we are animal lovers just like you.

  • We understand that you want to be able to provide the care for your beloved cat deserves … always.
  • Unfortunately, no matter how well you look after them, most cats will require veterinary treatment at some stage…and vet bills can quickly add up.

Cats are susceptible to chronic health conditions like hyperthyroidism and kidney disease, and these chronic conditions often come with a lifetime of treatment, such as life-long medication or monthly check-ups with a veterinarian. Our life-long cover* gives you the security that any chronic conditions will be covered each year up to the annual benefit.

Our cat insurance cover helps you to provide your beloved feline friend with vet care so that he/she will never need to suffer unnecessarily.

Most of all, our cat insurance will provide you with the security that you will never have to choose between money and the life of your precious family member.

* Pets over 9 years of age will not qualify for the Indoor Cat, Peace of Mind or Ultimate Plan where there has been a break, lapse or change in the level of Cover after reaching the age of 9.

Bow Wow Meow offers a choice of cat insurance plans, which will cover your cat for up to 80% of your eligible vet’s bills in case of injury or illness. Our new Indoor Cat plan has recently been introduced to cater to the specific needs of cats and offers a more budget friendly option.

Depending on the level of cover you select, we can help you save7:

  • On your cat’s eligible vet bills
  • If your cat requires surgery
  • Of your cat needs an extended stay in hospital or emergency boarding
  • On preventative treatments (eg. fleas, ticks, heartworm)8
  • On a range of treatment options that may otherwise have been considered unaffordable.

Most of all, having cat insurance cover will provide you with the security that you will never have to choose between money and the life of your beloved cat.

Our insurance plans have been designed to be able to suit you and your pet’s needs and are underwritten by Australia’s leading pet insurer.

And you can rest easy knowing that you are covered by the #1 rated pet insurer on the independent Product Review site.

How do we calculate our cat insurance premiums?

Pet insurance costs vary based on several factors specific to your cat, including:
  • Date of birth
  • Breed
  • Where your cat lives
  • The cover you select

We consider each of these elements and then match them to the average cat’s veterinary costs to determine your cat’s premium.

When should you take out cat insurance cover?

The purpose of cat insurance is to help cover the costs of unexpected accidents and illnesses that may occur. Unfortunately, it will not cover any existing conditions your cat may have, prior to insurance or during the applicable waiting period. These are known as pre-existing conditions. This means that the ideal time to insure your cat is as early as possible so that anything that happens in the future may be covered.
