Pet Industry

High Growth

US: With 5 million more pets in the U.S. since the pandemic began, Morgan Stanley predicts 8% annual growth in the pet industry by 2030.

Worldwide: Grand View Research projects the pet sitting and boarding market size “is anticipated to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.52% from 2022 to 2030.”

High Demand

Luxury, cat-only hotels are in high demand because cat care is an underserved market. The majority of pet boarding facilities focus on dogs and offer adjunct care for cats as an afterthought for dog parents who also have cats. They house cats in  cages or enclosures, not spacious suites with lots of options to lounge. Cat parents increasingly want cat-only accommodations. In Orange County, CA alone, less than 5% of pet boarding facilities are cat-only offering actual spacious, luxury accommodations like Club Cat does.

Pandemic & Recession proof

Club Cat is proof that luxury cat hotels are not just recession proof but also pandemic proof. Club Cat opened one year before the pandemic. In an industry directly related to the travel industry which was shut down in 2020, Club Cat not only survived but it started thriving just a year later.
