There’s no denying the popularity of cats on the internet. And, in recent times, this has extended to social media. It even has an official name – Social Petworking. If you’ve heard of #catsofinstagram you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about.
From grumpy cats to fashionista cats, we’ve seen them all. And now we want to see yours on your favourite social media network.
So why the growth in cat profiles on social media? One reason may be acceptance. As much as you love cats, you probably don’t want to flood your personal Facebook page with your cat’s every move.
The Lounge was created for the same reason – so people could connect with like-minded cat lovers in a home away from home that’s warm and welcoming.
When you set up a social page for your cat, you can upload to your heart’s content. It’s all about sharing the cat you love with people who are as passionate about cats as you are. All you need is a name, a few good photos, a short bio and you’re done. Given the popularity of cats on Instagram, your cat could become a socialite in no time at all!
