Expanding: Growing business ProtectaPuss has moved into larger premises as it continues to enjoy an increase in demand. The business, which makes and installs cat-proof fencing to prevent client’s pets straying into danger, has also launched an online shop.
The ecommerce side of the business, owned by husband and wife Simon and Eve Davies, pictured, offers made to measure cat containment components. The couple believe the shop sells everything a cat owner or independent contractor needs to install the cat proof barrier themselves when budgets can’t stretch to fitting costs.
Mrs Davies said: “Some of our competitors offer cat-proofing kits that come in standard kits. But there is no standard garden and each customer has specific needs. We wanted our shop to offer customer the flexibility to order to precise amount of materials required. In the coming decades, as roads become busier and the risks of diseased such as immunodeficiency virus (IFV) increase, I envisage that responsible cat owners will increasingly look to control their cats’ territories.”
The cat proof kits include clear instructions, with phone support and guidance also available. Mrs Davies added: “Simon and myself are driven by our love of cats and our desire to help cat owners find peace of mind. Our business has gone from strength to strength and in recent months we have moved our base from Alsager to extensive premises in Hobson Street, Burslem, to accommodate our growing size. There are five fully trained fitters and two vans, who travel the width and breadth of Britian installing cat enclosures. We feel that the online shop is the natural next step in our company’s progression.”
