Irresistable kittens growing into curious cats

That adorable kitten peeking out at you from a cage in the animal shelter is hard to resist, and if you’re able to give it a good home, why wouldn’t you? The only drawback is that many people forget kittens will grow into a mature cat requiring continual care for the rest of its life.

And part of that care will include veterinary treatment for unexpected illness or injuries, which can be expensive if you don’t have pet insurance. Fortunately, Petsecure offers affordable cover for your cat or kitten so that you can provide them with the very best care.

How much does it cost to look after a cat?

Owning a cat can be costly. According to NSW RSPCA, initial costs for the first year can be up to $2,545, depending on their purchase price and council registration fees. Ongoing costs can be at least $720 a year. And on top of all that is the ever-present threat of unforeseen vet treatment for diseases or emergencies. So if you don’t have cat insurance, you could be looking at thousands of dollars to save your kitty, money that you may not have.

When can I insure my cat or kitten?

Arranging your insurance sooner rather than later will give you peace of mind knowing the cover is there if it’s needed. Plus, you’ll avoid the likelihood of your cat developing a condition now that won’t be covered when you take out insurance later on (known as a pre-existing medical condition).

And you can cover your cat from just eight weeks. As long as they’re under nine years old, they’re eligible for illness cover and once they turn nine, they’ll continue to be covered for the rest of their lives, providing you keep up your payments.
