If you love cats and you’re looking to start an online business, your cat might be willing to share with you its best kept secrets.
Cats, a $30 billion niche idea.
Many people love them and some people not so much, but I won’t focus on the negative side of these lovely animals.
Since I was a young girl, I always wanted to have a cat, in a family where before I was born dogs had a privilege place, I introduced the first cat to my family, since then we have had a few of them, and all of them I might say they were great pets and shared with us lots of funny and great moments.
One or two months ago I noticed the presence of a gray and white cat in my back yard, since that day this cat has chosen to stay there and we (my husband and I) have adopted it, even if this cat prefers to keep its distance but at least it has a place to sleep and two times a day some cat food on its plate.
I have known for a long time cats are great companion pets if you like them, and I know once you get a kitty to live with you, you will spending some money on it, which leads me to think about all the business you can find on this niche.
Why Cats are so popular?
I wont say “everyone loves cats”, but I can say if you Google to know what is the most loved pet to have at home, you might get the surprise to know that cats have more fans than dogs in the States and in Europe, in Latin America dogs are the most popular pets to have at home, but by number on this Google search, cats take the lead.

Cat videos can go viral in just a few minutes, you can find also a few already famous cats on YouTube, so their owners might not see any problem to take care of their cats and take their time to be ready to record the next video.

Brilliant idea! Many people are too specific or they just can’t have an idea. Having a cat page is n amazing idea! If anyone feels passionate about cats, you can create content or blog about cats and make passive income from it!
My question is that do you believe that a dog niche would be successful too? I hope to see your response, thanks!
Hi Marques Pizarro,
I’m sure a dog niche will do great, there’s many dog’s website already, but there’s also some bloggers who have found the “micro niche” for them and if you have a dog, you can pay attention to it, your dog might have already what you’re looking for, something particular, it might be so cute, it might be a everyday hero, it might be the perfect pet.
There’s so many “dogs” on the internet that are already a star! making lots of money for their owners, if you have a dog, you might give it a try, you and your dog could be the next internet stars!
Thank you for this delightful and informative article on cats. I’m a big cat lover and I must say my cat rules the household.
With what seems to be a dog obsessed world out there it’s great to see all the wonderful options available for the cat lover. Cats rule! Dog’s drool!
When starting an online cat business, is it best to zero in on one particular aspect about cats like cat toys?
I LOVE CATS! and dogs, too. I think both of them are cute and are great companions. I have never really thought of cats as a niche to start an online business.
I think focusing on identifying problems with cats or simply cat product reviews would be a great idea. Thanks for this informative article! Meow
nice post, and eye-opening ideas. I personally have a cat. He has been with us for almost 2 years now, and you are right, the cat needs a lot of stuff and people pay on average between 1000 – 1500 in USD per year on their cats. I know because I do. I never thought about taking it online, but why not. It could be something to consider in the future. Thanks!
