Ka-Paw! These 7 Southeast Asian startups offer exactly what pet parents want for their furkids

Published 02 November, 2019

Did you know that October 29 is a National Cat Day? If you have a cat at home, it might be a good time to force-hug them and give them a nice treat.

According to an article by KrAsia, a global market research firm Euromonitor shares that the trend of providing a decent life that doesn’t revolve around eating, sleeping, and excreting is called “pet humanisation”. This has caused a spike in startups focussing solely on your pet’s wellbeing, from “social petworking” events, organic food, beverage for pets, to pet insurance.

In Southeast Asia, analyst firm Future Market Insights shares that the pet care market is expected to hit 1.4 billion by 2020, reflecting a compound annual growth rate of 6.8 per cent during the forecast period.

Thanks to Taylor Swift, Cat Day is an inspiration for us to go around Southeast Asia and discover startups that use technology to better provide for furry sons and daughters you have at home. These are some of the gems we found.
