Hi all....first post and looking for some advice from you wise cat people if I may please. DH and I are relocating back to the the U.K. from mainland Europe within the next couple of months and we are bringing our much adored rescue(d) cat with us. The problem is, we are not entirely sure who it would be best to try and insure him with once we get there as he's never been insured before ( pet insurance isn't an option here; people just pay for vet care whenever it is needed and I have to say that, in our experience, it is very good and very reasonably priced) A bit of background on Sid; my husband found him in our garage on a stormy November evening...cold, wet, hungry and only aged around 7/8 weeks. We assume that he'd been bought as a pet as he had a collar on ( he's also longish haired which none of the feral cats around here are) and that he'd somehow managed to escape and, thank goodness, found his way off the road and into the relative safely of our garage where again, thank goodness, DH didn't run him over as he came in from work! Anyway, at the time we put up flyers all over the neighbourhood, asked at the local church ( we don't go but most people here do) and spoke to as many people as possible but no one claimed him so he stayed with us....where he happily remains, calling all the shots across his acres of olive terraces and ruling the house with an iron paw! So......after giving you Sid's rather Disneyesque life story I guess my actual question really boils down to this: do you think that will we be able to get insurance for a 7 year old neutered cat who doesn't have any vet records to speak of and if so, what will the insurance companies need from us do you think? - our vets here don't really keep records ( yes I know, but believe it or not they are really very good with him and clearly know exactly what they're talking about, they're just a bit disorganised!) and even if they did, they wouldn't be in English so I assume not much point anyway Thanks for reading if you got this far!
