Cat Insurance for pedigree and domestic cats
Dear pets, both pedigree and domestic cats need good care especially if they fall ill or injure themselves. You can adjust your Cat Insurance just the way you like. For example, you can adapt the Animal Insurance of a pedigree cat also to cover its death or disappearance, and receive compensation according to the cat’s value.
What does cat insurance cover?
Cat Insurance covers veterinary expenses, examinations and medication prescribed by a vet, so you can give your cat the best possible treatment without having to worry about the costs.
Cat Insurance covers, for example, if
- you cat falls ill or is injured
- your pedigree cat dies or disappears
- your pedigree cat causes a loss to a person outside the family.
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.
How much does cat insurance cost?
The price of cat insurance depends on the scope of the insurance cover you have chosen, the details of the cat and your home municipality. Among other things, the age and breed of the cat, the deductible you have chosen and the maximum compensation affect the price. You can compare the cover options and prices of cat insurance in our online store.
The accidental death of a cat kept in a home can be compensated from the home contents insurance for up to €1,500. However, home insurance will not cover veterinary expenses or death resulting from an illness. Nor will home insurance compensate for damage caused by the cat, for example, by tearing, scratching or biting furniture and surface structures.
You can get Pohjola Cat Insurance even if you do not have Pohjola Home Insurance.
The insurance is issued by Pohjola Insurance Ltd.
