Cat on beam

Thanks again to Lay Ling for the photos - here's another photo of the house with one of the cats sitting on one of the beams.

The layout reminds me a little of the Cats' House.

Seen this one in ' Square ' an interior magazine before. More homes should have walkways for cats.

yes, the main idea was from cat house in the States.

It greatly inspired me to build one for my own home when i turned 'eligible to own my own flat' recently....

I dropped the investment on a good sofa and dining table and spent it all on the cat walk. Every cent worth!

Anonymous how about emailing me and I'll hook both Chewy and you up if that's okay with the both of you - unless Chewy thinks her contractor won't mind his number being up.

This is an example of putting limited space to great use. In a typical flat/house, the space near the ceiling is often not utilised. This design takes into consideration the spatial needs of cats, who often like to rest in high places.

The cats certainly seem to enjoy it.

It may sound crazy, but i do have thoughts of building outwards. Right now, the cats can only watch the birds and the smell the trees from the kitchen windows or the bedroom windows. If, just if, there is a way to build a cat balcony outwards from the kitchen window where the cats can walk say a meter out of the window and sit and get some sun, that will be PUUUUURRRRFECT...

One way is to bring non-toxic plants into the house, suspended in between aerial walkways.

Twisted natural tree trunks ( treated and dried ) and some wood/stones caverns can add some nature and fun into the existing structure.

Chewy may already know, but the steps on the wall look like one of Donald Judd's sculptures. See a pic at
