Insuring your older cat
Just like us, as cats get older, they, unfortunately, become more susceptible to illness and even injuries. Older pets may also understandably require more aftercare and time to recover from an accident too.
As a proud pet owner, we understand you want your cat to get the best possible care should they develop a medical condition or have an accident. With older cat insurance from Perfect Pet we can help to cover costly vet bills in an emergency. This can help to at least take care of the financial burden, giving you one less thing to worry about as your cat recovers.
Older cat insurance with no upper age limit
Many pet insurers do not provide cover for cats once they reach a certain age, which we don’t think is fair. We believe that all pets deserve protection and cover! That’s why we have no upper age limits; we know your cat is family and has a right to be protected. Our range of older cat insurance plans are tailored to accommodate the needs of older cats, and of course, suit varying budgets.
What types of older cat insurance can I get?
You can claim year after year for each illness or accident your pet develops, providing you renew annually with no break in cover.
Protect your pet against injuries and illness up to a pre-set limit with no time restriction, providing the policy is active.
We can pay
your vet direct
We understand that in the unfortunate event that your cat has an illness or accident that this can be an anxious and stressful time. However, if your vet accepts direct payment, then we can pay your vet bills directly, which at the very least gives you one less thing to worry about.

Things you should know about
older cat insurance
We feel that it’s right that we highlight the key relevant terms that you need to know when buying older cat insurance online through Perfect Pet. Here’s what we think you should know:
When taking out a Perfect Pet policy for the first time, a 14-day waiting period at the start of your policy will apply. This means that any diagnosed illnesses or noted symptoms made during this period will not be covered. Cover for accidents will become active after 5 days.
When you renew your Perfect Pet insurance policy, providing you do not have a break in cover, you will not be subject to any waiting periods and will have continuous cover. We will remind you 21 days before your policy expires. If you’ve agreed to Continuous Payment Authority (CPA), we will renew your policy automatically unless you tell us otherwise. Please be aware, as a cat gets older, insurance premiums may increase to accommodate the risk of age-related illness.
To help keep our premiums affordable for senior cats, when your cat is 10 years or older, a contribution towards each vet bill is payable, known as a co-payment. The co-payment amount is 15% in addition to any applicable excess, which will be deducted from the policy limit. At 15% our co-payment is one of the lowest around!
Any conditions or symptoms that existed before taking out a Perfect Pet policy are excluded from the cover. This exclusion also applies to conditions that develop and are related in any way to a pre-existing condition. Dental and oral treatment, unless caused by an accidental injury is also not covered. A full list of exclusions can be found in our policy wordings.
Policy terms and conditions vary. Please read the wording of the specific policy you intend to purchase for full terms and conditions.
