The Cats’ House: A DIY’d Human Home Dedicated To Life With Cats

It’s incredible really. What started as a single cat-centered DIY in 1986 has spiraled in to a full-blown human-inhabited feline paradise. Bob Walker and Frances Mooney have devoted their entire abode to the enjoyment of their massive brood of cats after a scratching-post room divider grew and grew into 140 feet of overhead kitty jungle gym, and the rest is history.

From the “catwalks” above to the decoupaged floor below, The Cats’ House is truly a crafting, cat-lovers wildest dream. I’ve never seen anything quite like it.
