SunLife launch Courtesy Pet Cover


We have one cat, we used to have four but unfortunately we lost them over the last couple of years. We are all real pet lovers so are very excited to see SunLife launch courtesy pet cover.

SunLife offer a ‘Courtesy Pet’ service, being the same idea as taking your car into the garage and getting a courtesy car. When you buy Pet Insurance with SunLife you now automatically get Courtesy Pet Cover included.

If your cat is poorly and needs to go to the vets for treatment, you are offered another pet to look after until your kitty cat returns home. Another example is if your doggy needs an operation, you will be offered another pet to keep you company until Pooch is fully recovered and comes home.

Isn’t it a great idea? Lots of people only have their pet for company, and miss them terribly if they have to go into the vets, even for a very short time. With this courtesy pet cover, they can care for and look after another pet – through this they will also learn how to look after another animal and what it needs.

The really clever part of courtesy pet cover is that it has PetMatch™ which matches the courtesy pet to you depending on what sort of pet you have. All is explained in this video:

What do think of the SunLife launch of Courtesy Pet Cover – is it something you would use?

  4. Every kitty needs something to make sure that they are always looked after!

  5. I think this would be a good plan for people that live alone. Though it could also make you miss your own animal more 🙁

  6. That’s such a cute idea. A lot of people especially those with kids or those who are older rely on having a pet so it’s nice to get a temporary replacement x

  8. I agree pet cover is very important, I’d hate to have to put a pet down because we couldn’t afford the bills.

  9. This is a different idea – I’m not sure I could do it myself, I’d want to keep the pet at the end 😉 but I could see how it would really help some people. x

  16. We have cover for our cats as we have 4 and can’t risk anything happening to them. I actually love this though and is one of the best April Fools I’ve seen, Mrs Beckett with her snake, Frank and his Rabbit and Maisie with her Llama haha!

  18. It is so important to get pet insurance, who knows what could happen and the bills are so expensive these days, especially as the costs are not regulated so you can be charged a lot for a small thing.

  19. This must be an April Fool. Good one.

  20. It sounds great. May look it up if I have pets in future.
