- you cat falls ill or is injured
- your pedigree cat dies or disappears

Cover for veterinary expenses already as kitten
Cat insurance can be taken out for a kitten that is at least six weeks old. It is safe for a curious little cat to study its environment when it is insured against nasty surprises.
Cat Insurance may be granted to cats under the age of 7. The insurance provides cover against Illness and accidents throughout the cat's life with no upper age limit. To get the best cover for your cat, select a maximum compensation of 3,000 euros for your insurance. Please note that death cover and liability loss and damage covers included in Cat Insurance expire after your cat turns 10 years.

The cat’s health declaration is easy to fill in online
Cat insurance and other animal insurance are granted on the basis of the animal’s state of health. A cat’s health declaration is easy to fill in online when you take out the policy.
Cat insurance can often be granted even if the cat is not fully fit. The decision is always made on the basis of the health declaration.
Cat insurance compensates the treatment of accidents and any illnesses that occurred after the policy was taken out, so as a rule no illness that existed before the policy was taken out will be compensated. When you take out cat insurance when your pet is still young and healthy, you ensure the best coverage possible.
The accidental death of a pet kept in the home will be compensated for up to 1,500 euros under MyHome Insurance.
Vet’s bills and death of a pet caused by illness, however, will be compensated under the dog’s or cat’s own insurance. Dog or cat insurance can also be taken out without home insurance.
Please note that home insurance does not cover loss or damage caused by a pet through chewing, tearing or scratching.
