Idea

The cat segment of the pet market is worth an estimated £5B in the UK alone and we feel it's largely underserved. 'Food' aside, there's no dominant cat brand. For too long the UK's 8M cats have put up with unimaginative, poorly designed, low-quality products. If you're a cat owner, you'll know what we mean.

Following an extensive career in engineering and sales at NASA, IBM and Oracle, Andy Sutton founded Catipilla after solving a need for his own family cat. Within 3 years Catipilla has grown into a vibrant new cat brand positioned to make an impact in the global pet market worth £110B and growing at 6.5%.

We're passionate about cat health, well-being and happiness. Our first products are a collection of high quality, innovative and functional, wall-mounted climbing frames, resting points and scratchers that create exciting, new living spaces for cats.

In 3 years Catipilla has:

•Sold 2,000+ products in 16 countries

•Grown quickly; 2.3x YoY order growth in 2020

•Secured amazing customer reviews; 4.9/5.0

•Finalist in the PetQuip '2018 Product of the Year'

•Listed at Pets at Home

We have a growing number of installations in vet practices, catteries and cat rescue centres. We're endorsed by International Cat Care and have a partnership with IAMS, a global pet food giant.

Our next steps are accelerated growth through new retail distribution channels in the UK and international export market.
