Find anyone who has pinned or repinned anything from Pinterest, and you’ll almost certainly find a cat on their Pinterest board. Cats are one of the most popular Pinterest topics.
Pinterest and cats go hand-in-hand. Pinterest is a highly visual social media platform. It’s a great way for people and organizations to show off what they are doing, making, or selling. The Melaleuca Pinterest page, for example, showcases new products.
That visual medium is great for cats and cat lovers because there’s something about the sight of a cat that attracts people’s attention. Cats just make people laugh and smile.
But Pinterest isn’t just about displaying silly cat pictures and memes. It’s a great way to share articles and information about cats, cat breeds, cat care, cat products and more. It also provides a place for the cat community to stay abreast of exciting cat events.
The Cat Fanciers Association, which is the world’s largest registry of pedigreed cats, has a great presence on Pinterest. They don’t have just one board, but 49 boards. Most of these individual boards feature specific cat breeds, so if you just want to see pins about Abyssinians, you’re all set. But they also have boards about their events and top-winning cats.
Cat Fancy Magazine, found at CatChannel.com, also has some great Pinterest boards—13 in all. They’ve embraced the cat-meme craze on one of their official boards, but they also have some boards that pin links to some of their great cat articles and features. They care enough about cat health to offer some helpful boards on flea and parasite control, as well as spaying and neutering.
It used to be quite difficult to find resources, whether informational or purely entertaining, on cats. But thanks to the advent of social media and Pinterest. there is a wealth of feline-focused information that is visually stunning, educational, helpful and fun.
