    Hi there,

    My partner and I have recently adopted a 3 legged cat and I was wondering if anyone knew whether this would affect pet insurance or where is best to go for insurance? He lost his leg after being hit by a car and has no pre existing medical conditions. Also, we are now keeping him as an indoor cat in order to keep him safer.

    Any advice appreciated! Thanks :)

    Pet plan are very good.

    I'm not sure insurers ask how many legs a cat has. And as he is adopted I would assume he has no medical history as such. I would insure him prior to taking him to a new vets.

    Would it be a medical condition? If he is as capable as a four legged cat? And no issues as a result?

    I believe you have too. Our dog has only three legs and we had to inform insurers of this fact

    Defo state this previous injury when insuring. I do believe anything relating to this will not be covered, however as an otherwise healthy cat this won't affect his insurance much x
