WHY ARE CAT PARENTS SO HARD TO REACH?
The truth is that there are so many cat parents looking for services for their cats right now, but they would rather wait forever until they find the right person that Feels like the right fit and provides the standard of care and customer services they desire. So yes, they will wait.
Cat parents love their cats and often worry about the care they get. They are also the type that may not speak up when they don't the like service or care they get and instead of saying somthing they will either just NEVER go back to you and you won't ever hear from them again or they will stop getting services for their cat altogether because that experience put such a severe sour taste in their mouth. Unfortunately, both of these situations the cat suffers a little and a potentially good business can't understand why. But I know why.....I have been hearing the stories in the industry for over 25 years. I am going to write a book with all the stories not to dwell on them but to showcase how with just a few minor changes and or communication skills each of these stories could be turned into a success story.
That's why its so important for a cat industry business to be proactive, learn the things cat parents want up front and when you can be forthcoming you will set the client at ease.

WHY COMFORT CAT PROVIDER?
Cat parents are a unique and overlooked segment of the pet industry. We've learned a lot about their number one need and what they're looking for in Caregivers, Product Service providers, their expectations and Number One need and customer service for themselves.
Our goal is to elevate the comfort and care of cats by connecting cat parents with exceptional industry professionals that meet their expectations. The pet service industry is booming, but it also includes what we call Hobbyist providers.Hobbyist compete with professionals for clients and cat parents have a hard time recognizing the difference between the two.
Our program is an extension of our Purr View mission, it's a cat lover's purr-spective on cat care and the feline lifestyle where the cat is at the center of the home! It combines comfort & care techniques for kitty's - alongside customer service to cat parents that goes above industry standards. My company serves a niche audience of true cat parents and cat enthusiasts.

Our company hopes to transform the mindset of providers, educate them on cat parents and how they can market and brand what they have to offer to connect them with great clients, and revolutionize the standard of care of cats for future generations.
