Exclamation Cat insurance

I'm thinking about getting my cat Sammy pet insurance but he is four years old. Is that old for insurance and do other people around here have per insurance?
Thank you again from me and Sammy.

Best time to get pet insurance imo, is when you just get a pet, OR before any pre-existing conditions show up.

We had our Scully's insurance at 1 year. Now she's 5 and she has idiopathic cystitis -_-
Thanks goodness is nothing severe but the bad thing is that during the episodes the bill is not high enough to be covered by it (well that's kind of a good and bad thing because we get to pay the whole thing)
Anyways, since it seems to be stress related we treat her with homeopathy and it works great for her.
Now going back to your question I still have to include Bobandy and Mulder in the insurance plan and they have no pre existing conditions although they are 3 now. So like Marko said as long as he's healthy I don't think there should be any problem plus at 4 he's not an old cat.
