I'm sorry to say No. Renters insurance does not cover damages done by your cat to your things. Mostly, Damages done by pets are excluded. RE: Does renters insurance cover pet damage? eg. cat pee?

No, the cleaning people should pay to have your mattresses professionally cleaned and to replace pillows.

probably not, but ask the cleaning people to pay for damages that is why they carry insurance

Awwwww. We wish it did but...nope. If you read the policy you will find a section called "exclusions". Damage by pets is ALWAYS excluded. We buy insurance to cover financial exposure/expenses that we ourselves can not cover. Cat accidents are typically within our ability to pay. Plus - you have a deductible anyway.

No. The standard renters policy has an exclusion, to cover any damage to a premises you rent. There's ALSO an exclusion for damage to your property by your pets. Regarding the contents, the bed and mattress, most policies cover on a NAMED PERILS basis (including fire, theft, vandalism, smoke, wind, hail, etc), and "my cat peed on it" is not a named peril.
