Incredible Home Catwalks Make for Purr-fectly Happy Felines

Incredible Home Catwalks Make for Purr-fectly Happy Felines

n 1988, when home builder Peter Cohen moved into his house in Goleta, California, two roaming outdoor cats came with the property. Shortly after he moved in, one was killed by a car and the other was hit by a car. This prompted Cohen to keep the surviving cat indoors. Soon after, he began rescuing cats that nobody wanted. Before he knew it, he had 18 on his hands.

After a home remodel in the 1990s, Cohen began constructing catwalks and tunnels for his feline companions. The intricate and artistic platforms and walkways allow the cats to climb, jump and crawl through the house, and they even connect to various litter boxes — 24 of them — which are concealed in closets with fans and the garage. “The house is designed not to smell, and it doesn’t,” he says.

Pictures are in the article to see what he did and more of the story

An everyday family name; A particular name;

The design is almost Seussian. I kept looking at the pictures to see if Thing1 and Thing2 were hiding behind any of it.

Wow - it looks so clean and pretty! My cat's definitely don't have it that good. Love the designs, it doesn't look like there are 18 cats in that house.

I'd need someone to come in and clean the house... and the 24 litter boxes!! Then it would be perfect...

How do you sleep at night? There's no room on the bed for 9 cats, let alone 18.
