The pet industry is thriving - and the cat sitting market is booming and going to see un-rivalled growth in the next couple of years.
3.2 million households in the UK have acquired a new pet since the start of the pandemic and a lot of these pets have been of the feline variety.
In fact, the Pet Food Manufacturers Association (PFMA) estimates that some 12 million homes across the UK are now ruled by a cat. That’s a massive increase from 7.5 million cats the year before!

"We saw it as a simple business model that permits people with little experience running a business to start up and build up a client base quickly. It was particularly advantageous to us in that it was also home/locally based and allows us to work around our family and existing work commitments. The marketing and training assistance is also a big draw. It is essentially the complete start-up package for those that love and live with our feline friends!"

Three simple reasons you should join The Cat Butler this year
The market is growing every year
With a 63% increase in the number of pet cats in the last year, coupled with rising demand for in-home cat sitting services, now really is the purr-fect time to come on board as a Cat Butler franchisee. These cats need Cat Butlers to serve them while their humans are away. Demand for our services is through the roof right now, and we need enthusiastic cat lovers to help us meet this demand.
Holidays are back
Holidays are possible once more, and families need people they trust to look after their pets. Catteries are an option, as too is asking a friendly neighbour. After spending so much time at home, though, cat owners are more aware than ever of their cats' love of being in their familiar surroundings - which is great news for cat sitting business owners like us!
There's loads of support available
We are not talking here about the support we offer you as a franchisee; we're talking about the government-backed business start-up loans available to help you realise your dreams of becoming a cat sitting business owner. We can help you find and secure finance for your Cat Butler franchise business.
Next steps to becoming a Cat Butler franchisee
When you join our franchise family, you might be your own boss, but you'll never be alone – we are always here, ready and willing to help you build a business that we can both be proud of.
If you're a cat lover and dedicated to providing exceptional customer service, then The Cat Butler could be purr-fect for you.
