What makes The Cat Butler different
A Trusted Brand That’s Only for Cats
Offering pet sitting services only for cats means that you will become a specialist in providing cat sitting services in your area, helping to quickly build a base of returning customers.
The Cat Butler cares for thousands of cats across the UK with services delivered by a network of vetted, trained and fully insured cat-loving professionals. The reputation we’ve established has allowed us to grow at an exceptional rate, and our franchisees benefit from this recognition to secure new clients.
A Flexible Business That Works Around You
Our cat sitting service is competitive, affordable and most importantly scalable.
Becoming a Cat Butler requires lower start-up costs than other pet-industry businesses. In addition, our unique combination of affordability and specialism in cat care gives us a competitive edge over competitors such as catteries and general pet sitting services.
A Complete Support Network and Established Business Model
You don’t need prior experience to become a Cat Butler – the key requirement is a love of cats and a drive to succeed.
We’ve created a business model that’s replicable, and with this we provide a complete package to ensure local Cat Butlers succeed and grow their business. This covers all aspects of start-up including training and support, through to on-going marketing and recruitment.
"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 of us that love and live with our feline friends!"

2022: The Purr-fect time to start your own cat sitting business
The pet industry is thriving - and the cat sitting market is booming and going to see unrivalled 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!
Three reasons to make a change and join The Cat Butler this year
Holidays are back on the table
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!
The Market is growing
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.
