Kitten Insurance

Young kittens are cute and cuddly but they can also be crazy and mischievous which is where insurance can help. While our one simple insurance plan is available to cats, it's a great idea to sign up while your kitten is young to help protect against the unexpected.

Enroll early

It is in your best interest to purchase insurance for your feline while he or she is still a young, healthy kitten in order to avoid any pre-existing conditions that would be excluded from your insurance plan. Because of their curious and rambunctious nature, younger pets have the highest frequency of claims, so insuring a kitten as early as possible can help protect them from any future accidents and illnesses.

Also, enrolling your kitten between the ages of eight weeks and one year guarantees you’ll pay Trupanion’s lowest rates. Even with veterinary inflation, those who enroll their cats as kittens will always pay significantly less than if they originally enrolled their cat at an older age.


When getting a quote for your new kitten, we recommend choosing a low deductible to start out your policy. Kittens can be unpredictable in their youth, but a low-deductible pet insurance plan can help reduce the amount you have to pay out of pocket during an emergency.

Breeding cats

If you plan to keep your kitten intact for breeding purposes, you may enroll them as a breeding pet to ensure coverage for any conditions that may arise due to breeding. Please see our sample policy for full details.

Despite all this kitten talk, Trupanion does offer insurance for older cats up to 14 years old. So long as your cat is signed up by his or her 14th birthday, Trupanion will cover your cat with a lifetime insurance policy.
