    Default A penthouse apartment in Long Island City, Queens

    Hamed Anvari, a 31-year-old derivatives trader, and Sasha Unkov, a 26-year-old associate brand manager for a company that makes hair-care products, share a penthouse apartment in Long Island City, Queens.







    In choosing to live together, a major issue was Ms. Unkov’s four-year-old cat, Nermal. Mr. Anvari is allergic to cats.


    Fortunately for Mr. Anvari, Nermal proved exceptionally trainable. With the help of a device called SSSCat, a motion detector that emits a spray and a loud whine when a cat approaches, Nermal learned that he could set foot in certain places only at his peril. The second bedroom is known as “Nermal’s bedroom,” and he sleeps there at night, burrowing for warmth under the heavy white comforter.

    Why is this apartment featured in a publication? Nothing of the remotest interest architecturally or interior design-wise. It couldn't be more bland.

    I would love to fall asleep watching the NYC skyline at night. But, yep this is fairly unremarkable. Cute kitty.

    KITTY!

    And I really don't think it's necessary to block your kitty off from certian rooms of the house. If you don't want a cat roaming freely and being able to sleep at the foot of your bed then don't have one.

    Edit: I missed the line about him being allergic. Take some claratin!

    All you can do at life is play along and hope that sometimes you get it right.
