There are literally thousands of feral and wild cats in Spain. You can often see them at the bins (basuras) on urbanisations or at bin collection centres. They are mainly there to find food, and it doesn't help with many people putting food out for them. These feral and wild cats are often riddled with fleas, carry diseases and mange, which can easily be transmitted to your own domestic cat.
Most cats, if not contained within your home, will want to roam freely and they can travel long distances - after all, they are curious animals by nature. With more and more transmissible diseases and dangers on the road, having a healthcare plan that covers for accidents, injuries and healthcare, is essential.
Protectapet are the only Pet Healthcare Management organisation that will offer fixed premiums for life for any of your pets including cats. No pet insurance companies will offer you this kind of cover and pet insurance companies will also penalise your premium as your cat or pet gets older. This cover can offer you tremendous savings over time, as you know what you will pay each month or year and you have the guarantee that premiums will never go up as long as you keep the policy running.
Unlike other Pet Insurance companies in Spain and around the world, once you have a policy with Protectapet, even if you make a claim, your premiums will never go up. You don't need to worry about any increases in Premiums on renewal, for the lifetime of your pet.
Protectapet do not penalise your premiums because of the age of your cat. You can contract a Protectapet Cat healthcare plan at any age and pay the same premium for the lifetime of your cat.
We do not discriminate as to the breed of cat you want to cover, even though some breeds are more susceptible to disease than others. We believe in trying to keep it fair across the entire cat breed range. You won't pay any more for older cats to join.
Most people have a Cat Healthcare Plan with Protectapet to mitigate the costs involved if your Cat requires Veterinary treatment for an illness or accident that may occur to your Cat. With a Protectapet Cat Healthcare Plan you are also free to use any Vet of your choice.
Protectapet will pay for any reasonable Veterinary treatment for your cat based on a conventional charging structure covering unrelated accidents or illnesses carried out by a Veterinarian of your choice, within the bounds of the validated location of cover, including home visits in an emergency, hospitalisation, medication and/or alternative medicines such as acupuncture and homeopathy. Some treatments will require authorisation, up to the maximum level of cover authorised on your policy.

We are all aware how dangerous the roads are for our pets, particularly our cats. Cats are not normally walked for exercised like we do with our dogs on a lead and cats are generally allowed to leave the home and come back at will. This does mean they are more prone to traffic accidents than other pets.
Protectapet Cat Healthcare Plans will cover your cat treatments for poisonings, traffic accidents, injuries and accidental death.
Many cat owners now travel with their pets. Whether this is taking the cat back to your home country on holiday, or simply taking the cat with you wherever you go.
Protectapet offer an additional cover on your Pet Healthcare plan which enables you to contract European cover if you are travelling that will cover any emergency treatment whilst you are away from home.
Pet Travel insurance for cats and dogs is also available upon request.
Having peace of mind that your cat or cats are well taken care of whilst you are ill is important to us. Protectapet will cover your cat's stay at a licenced cattery if you or your partner are hospitalised for more than 48 hours.
The limits of cover are defined in your Cat Healthcare Plan policy, depending upon the cat healthcare plan you have selected.
Some cats are worth a lot of money and animal theft, particularly Cats and Dogs is on the rise all over the world. Unscrupulous criminals know they can sell valuable pets quite quickly for a handsome profit.
Pets also stray. Cats can often go missing for days, weeks and months and then suddenly return. It can be heartbreaking when your cat goes missing and not knowing whether it has been injured, stolen or just gone walkabout doesn't help.
Protectapet want you to find your cat quickly and include a section whereby Protectapet will pay for an advertising or reward scheme to help you find your Cat.
Making a claim for your Cat.
When your cat has been ill and you have taken them to the Vet of your choice, you can download a claims form, or you or your Vet can complete the online claims form. The online claims form is by far the quickest way to get your claim settled.
The Protectapet claim forms are available in a variety of languages and you can choose the one in the language you prefer. Be aware that some Vets don't speak English, so perhaps it would be wise to download the Spanish claims form and the English claims form if you don't want to fill in the online claims form.
At Protectapet we want to make sure you are happy with the cover we offer for all pets, so you can use any vet of your choice. One that you feel comfortable with and one that you feel looks after your pet.

Many pet insurance companies require that you use there own specified vets. This is because they have deals with them to reduce the pet insurance companies bills. You will not get charged less and you will have less choice if your pet needs specialised treatment. Not all vets are the same. Some vets will offer very comprehensive services and others will have very comprehensive and expensive machinery and medical diagnosis equipment to help deal with any issues your pet might have.
