Growing Garden Sales

Consumers' growing awareness of the various benefits of cat gardens is driving demand and sales in this category.

Show Some ID

Offering pet identification products and engraving services drives traffic into pet stores and puts a potentially life-saving tool into the hands of appreciative customers.

9 Healthy Lives

The health and wellness product category is booming, thanks to nurturing pet parents and the increasing lifespan of indoor cats.

Unwrapped Opportunity

Pet-themed giftware offers pet specialty retailers high margins, making it a lucrative category-especially during the holiday season.

Time to Talk Litter

Litter and accessories are often overlooked, but as a staple category these products can offer major contributions to a retailer's bottom line.

Climbing Sales

Cat furniture products can be a lucrative category for retailers, but it is not without its challenges.

The Taste Test

Once a category in which price was all important, the cat nutrition segment is now largely focused on wellness-and retailers need to make sure they're keeping up with the trend.

Safe & Secure

The pet containment category is becoming more diverse as shoppers continue to seek products that fit their specific needs and aesthetic sensibilities.

A Trend with Claws

Declawing is out-and that means cat scratching products are in. Smart retailers are ready to cash in on the trend.

On The Road

Cat travel is much more popular than many retailers realize. It would be a mistake to overlook this category, which can generate multiple product sales per customer.

Restoring Confidence

Today's shoppers are approaching the pet food aisle with a healthy dose of skepticism, so pet retailers must go above and beyond to ensure confidence in this important segment of their business.

Making Playtime Work at Retail

Retailers are harnessing the power of play as manufacturers offer cat owners greater variety in the toy category.

Coiffed Cats

No longer just a niche market, cat grooming-and the products associated with it-are gaining traction with today's feline owners.

Treating Kitty Right

Variety is the secret ingredient in creating a cat treat category that tastes of success.

Instincts Gone Wild

Cats are born with strong natural instincts that can be destructive when not managed correctly - smart retailers can help cat owners tame kitty's wild side so the two can co-exist.

Crazy for Catnip

Most people are familiar with catnip as a fun treat that tends to drive kitty a little crazy, but it is actually a lot more versatile than that.

Fresh & Green

Cat gardens are on the rise, and they represent a great way to add some green to the store this fall.

Keeping Kitty Clean

Cat grooming is on the rise, as a result of increased knowledge about feline care. Wise retailers would do well to leverage the category's growth to increase product sales.

In the Box

Like food, litter is a staple in the cat aisle; but unlike food, the sales potential in the litter category is often overlooked.

Get Your Fill

Retailers see fierce competition over cat food sales-but with the right tactics, they can still enjoy their fair share of the market.
