    Default Man with 18 cats spends $35,000 to turn his home into a pet playground

    A man with 18 cats decided to turn his home into a feline paradise, adding in colorful ramps, walkways and tunnels for the animals to play on.
    The unidentified cat lover, whose house is located in Goleta, California, spent a whopping $35,000 on the renovation, which included the addition of a spiral walkway, tiny stairs to leading to various kitty ledges and climbing polls that double as scratching posts.
    More importantly, he also installed a new ventilation system to ensure that the air is regulated - a necessity for a home housing so many animals.

    Cat accoutrements: The unidentified cat lover, whose house is located in Goleta, California, added a spiral walkway, tiny stairs to leading to the kitty ledges and climbing polls that double as scratching posts

    In a photo of the interior, which was renovated with the help of construction company Trillium Enterprises, one kitty perches high on a ledge near the ceiling, peering over the room from its vantage spot.
    The room is also decked out with a scratching poll, which is surrounded by a swirling walkway leading from the floor to the ceiling.

    Unassuming: Despite all the cat-friendly additions, the house looks surprisingly normal from the outside, with a pretty stone garden in the back, which is surrounded by palm trees

    Feline frenzy: In the entryway, a colorful cat painting decorates the wall. Above it is a mint green cat walkway leading to the next room

    Hanging out: In an office, an entire wall is decorated with kitty walkways, running on slight inclines. A photo of the room shows four cats enjoying their designated spots

    An office in the house has an entire wall of kitty walkways running on slight inclines; in a photo of the room, four grey cats happily make use of their designated spots.
    In one of the bathrooms, a tiny staircase leads from the side of the tub up to a network of ledges, forming a kitty-friendly path along the top of the room.
    A cat statue made of stone sits on the side of the tub - one of several feline-themed pieces of art around the house.

    The room is also decked out with a scratching poll,
    Pole for fuck's sake.

    Did the cats vote on having a security camera on the ceilings? I find that creepy, particularly the bedroom and bathroom ones.

    That may be where extra catnip is stored and of course it would require cameras.
