I definitely need to live in Japan. Perhaps you remember the unbelievable cat-friendly house from Japan that I posted last year. Well, here is another one that may be even more incredible. The Cats’ House designed by Japanese architecture firm Fauna +DeSIGN was built for the owners 16 cats (and 5 canines). It has every kind of climbing and perching structure a feline family could ever dream of, all integrated beautifully into a modern interior.
There appears to be great attention to detail throughout the house. Notice the rounded corners on the climbing shelves. Much safer for cats than sharp pointed corners.
There are even access areas for humans to make it easier to clean the upper perching areas.
Lots of natural light gives the space a wonderful open feel. This handsome silver tabby is certainly enjoying himself!
Catwalks and shelves galore along with secret tunnels and passageways just for cats.
This giant floor-to-ceiling sisal-wrapped scratching and climbing post has got to by my favorite feature.
This amazing house was recently filmed for an upcoming show on Animal Planet. There are many more photos at www.catshouse.jp as well as some videos of the cats enjoying their home.
Thank goodness that Goma’s mom Sachie understands Japanese, because she keeps finding these incredible things! Thanks, Sachie!
