This woman turned her friend's home into a cat paradise for their 7 kitties!
Yep. I want to live here... and I kind of wish I was a cat!
"In February, 2014 my friend Eliza and her partner Tiffany bought their first house together. After seeing a few photos she posted on Facebook, I knew I wanted to help catify their incredible new home for their seven cats," Rebecca Mountain shared with Bored Panda.
"This would be the first time Eliza’s cats Kirby, Agnes, Monkey, Judd and Naked would meet Tiffany’s cats Encore and Pluto and having perches, walkways and cat trees would be an important part of an easier transition into their new home. In addition to the cats, three dogs would call this home as well, making it all the more important that the cats have their “cat only” space."
"After discussing some ideas we agreed that it would be best to create 'super highway' so that the cats could travel from one end of the house to the other without setting foot on the floor."
Beginning at the southeast end of the house, I installed a 12” x 6’ window perch
I had to create custom shelves to allow access over the sliding glass door
Upon reaching the other side of the sliding glass door, the cats would arrive at a custom 6-feet cat tree
Back up the cat tree the cats can easily step onto the catwalk which extends approximately 16 feet towards the West to the central post
Multiple points of access are important to allow the cats to get up and down so they never felt stuck or cornered
I added more shelves to allow the cats to travel north along the west wall and access the second floor
I also wanted to create something special and a little different for the wall just below the second-floor railing
I wanted to create a wall of cat shelves that look something like leaves growing off branches
The result is a “leaf wall”
Here’s Encore’s first time exploring the catwalk
Our Wall Mount Scratching Post was a perfect fit to the whole construction
“I bet I can get to the second floor from here”
Agnes leaps to the next shelf
Coming off the catwalk
We were able to use wood that complemented the existing wood in the home
Agnes took to the catwalks and shelves very quickly
It’s pretty cool drinking your morning coffee and having cats treading overhead
Share if you would like your house catified!
