About this group

pure breed cat, Cat Insurance for Cat Breeds

There are a number of things about purebred cats which affect how they need to be insured, so we've created this group to help owners use their combined buying power to get the best cat insurance.

Firstly, many breeds of cat are popular choices as house cats - Ragdoll and Russian Blue being good examples. Because these cats spend all their time indoors, they are less likely to pick up infectious diseases, require vet treatment for injuries, or to go missing.

Secondly, the breeding process can lead to cats having a predisposition to develop certain medical conditions. For example, some lines of Persian cats have high incidence of kidney and heart problems, while Siamese and Abyssinian cats are more likely to end up at the vet with eye and ear issues. It's important that these conditions are not excluded from cat insurance policies.

Finally, purebred cats often represent a material financial investment. Very few people are in the market to spend £17,000 on a hypoallergenic Ashera cat (a Savannah hybrid), but buying a kitten from a breeder is not cheap and usually costs several hundred pounds. So, replacement costs do need to be taken into consideration.

We said that if 100 owners registered interest by joining this group, we'd commit to opening a conversation with companies that offer pet insurance to find the best possible deal for your cats. And we're delighted that we've now completed those negotiations, and agreed an exclusive offer for group members with John Lewis. So please join the group to find out more!

By joining this group, you club together with other pure breed cat owners to get the best deal on pet insurance for your companion.

    I used this fantastic discount last year and got a great deal for my 2 maine coons. I have just had the renewal through and there is no mention of the continuing offer for next year, is it a one time offer? Thanks, Charlotte.

  • avatar for MariaMaria (Bought By Many staff) 2 years, 3 months ago

    Congratulations on your anniversary as Bought By Many's customer, Charlotte! You do get the same discount at renewal, and in subsequent years, so the payment should reflect that. Apologies for the confusion in the communication, we'll get in touch with More Than to make sure it's clear in the renewal letter. Cheers, Maria

    Just to let you know that more than Insurance are now finally doing a multi pet insurance, Still a bit pricey but better now than what I was paying for my cats and dogs individually through them.

    We have a Snow Bengal, Savannah (6yrs old) and sadly on the 10 Sept 2012 lost Rufus (7yrs old) our Brown marble Bengal. Our daughter Biba (Messaged on FB about this) has Maisie, 3yrs old Peach Bengal aswell. We would all be interested to see what is on offer eventually. Thank you Nick & Val Mortel Warsash, Hampshire.

    We've had several questions from members of the group about what options there are for insurance if you have several cats. It would be great to hear how many cats you have - it's very useful information for our discussions with pet insurance companies & might mean we can negotiate a better deal. Thanks!

    Very helpful - thanks Sheri!

    I only have the one - technically a moggie - but 3/4 Bengal and 1/4 Maine Coon - so would be interested to see what deal Bought by Many can come up with ;) The PDSA reckon that i could put Eddie as a crossbread and get away with it - but he's worth the extra money of tis the right policy. Wishing fa thee Abundance and Giggles Scott

    Thanks Scott - and welcome Eddie :)

    I have 4 Siamese. Would be great to get a group insurance rather than having to take out individual ones.

  • avatar for SamSam (Bought By Many staff) 3 years, 10 months ago

    Many thanks Karen - I agree it makes much more sense to have a policy which provides insurance for multiple cats & we will do our best to find one. Have you found any pet insurance companies which make it straightforward to get a quote for your 4 siamese?

  • avatar for KarenKaren 3 years, 10 months ago

    I have not had any problems getting quotes but they are always on a individual cat basis which is very costly. I currently use more than. I did ask if they would provide me with a multi cat insurance but was told that they don't do that. Having recently had vet bills for over £3000 for one of my cats who suffered a horrific dog attack I would not be without insurance. It was very frustrating though that they have increased her premiums to a ridiculous rate because I have had a claim. The other issue I had at the time was that my vet refused to do the initial emergency operation until I had paid them £1000 up front. (they then told me after that they were surprised she pulled through grrrr) Getting hold of that cash instantly was a problem at a time when I was highly distressed. This was the one and only time I had ever made a claim and had wrongly thought that as she was insured the insurance company would liaise with the vets. I was told that I would have to pay up front and then claim back from the insurance company. Getting hold of £3000 was not easy for me. More than were quite happy to pay the vets direct but I was then told that the vets policy was that you had to pay them first and then claim back from the insurance company. They don't tell you that at the time!!!! regards Karen

    Karen, thank you so much for this - it's really valuable for us to understand the issues owners face, both with arranging insurance in the first place and with making claims, and it's a big help in finding the right insurer. How frustrating and absurd that the vet wouldn't accept payment directly from the insurance company!
