In this article:

Ah, the million-dollar question: how much money can you make with a cat sitting business? The answer, of course, depends on a wide range of factors. And, while I can’t answer the question for everyone, I can tell you how much you can expect to make if you invest in a Cat Butler cat sitting business.

So, how much can you make?

I can’t stress enough that the answer to this question really does depend on you. How much time you’re willing to dedicate to the cat sitting business, whether you’ll be employing a team or performing cat sitting duties yourself, how proactive you are in ‘getting out there’ and promoting your business. We give you all the tools that you need to be successful and comprehensive plans and more support than you can shake a stick at. How far your cat sitting business goes, though, and how much money you make - that is up to you!

As a guide - and based on our many years of experience running a cat sitting business - you can realistically make between £35k and £48k a year and break even in as little as 3-6 months with The Cat Butler.

What investment is required?

The figures above take into account the initial investment, any monies that we recommend setting aside to launch your cat sitting business, and general operating costs.

While some people may look at a franchise investment and view that initial outlay as a ‘risk’, we want to assure you that, before we even think about putting pen to paper, we will have gotten to know you. You will have gotten to know us. We will have spoken about your dreams for your cat sitting business, and we will have told you all about the support we can offer. We’ll have worked together on a robust plan to help us build a cat sitting business that we can both be proud of. In other words, we will both be in a position where we have weighed up everything and come to the decision together that this is an opportunity that we both want to move forward with.

In short, this means that, before you even begin, you’ll have a good idea as to how much YOU could make in your first year (and beyond). You’ll be able to see how quickly that initial investment can be recouped, and you will know what to expect.

Back to the question

OK, I went off on a little bit of a tangent there, but the above was something that I felt was important to say. And it’s something that you should consider when looking at any cat sitting franchise opportunity.

The initial investment to become a Cat Butler franchise is £7,000. On top of this, we recommend setting aside around £1,500 for things such as legal fees, home office set-up, and so on. Don’t worry if this sounds out of reach, as we can help you obtain finance if needed and if we both feel there is a good fit.

What’s next?

The figures provided here are for illustrative purposes. It gives you a good idea, but we have based them on a number of assumptions about what a ‘typical’ franchise might look like. 

If you are interested in running your own cat sitting business and would like to learn more about how much YOU could make with The Cat Butler, we would love to have a chat with you! 

Get in touch, and let’s see what we can achieve together!
