A naughty cat yesterday

That’s a lot of soiled carpets, torn curtains and chewed remote controls and it adds up to something like £700 damage for every pet owner.

It’s a survey that’s just been published by confused.com and it raises some serious questions around the subjects of home insurance and pet insurance.

Namely, most home insurance policies won’t cover you against damage caused by Fido or Tibbles and most pet owners don’t know that. It’s a big potential problem for them, when you consider that one in five pet owners claims to have had significant damage caused by their pet in the last 12 months…

So – if you have a clumsy dog or a cat that crawls up the curtains, it might be worth talking to your home insurer just to check that you have cover for pet induced calamities, give us a ring on 0800 840 5758.
