The Cats' House Japan 

Most of us consider our homes cat friendly. We provide scratching posts, cat trees, and lots of toys to keep our feline family members happy and entertained. But how many of us have an entire house that was designed specifically for cats?

A family in Japan does. The Cats’ House was designed by the Japanese architectural firm Fauna+DeSIGN for an avid cat lover.

The house, owned by a family with 16 cats and 5 dogs, features beautifully designed modern furniture and various structures that were created especially for cats: shelves and platforms with rounded corners, bookcases that work like stairs, hidden tunnels and passageways, catwalks on the ceilings, a floor-to-ceiling scratching post and all kinds of other goodies meant for discovering, climbing, playing and of course sleeping. The architecture is very open and invites a lot of natural light to every room.

Be sure to visit The Cats’ House website and look around. I don’t know Japanese, but the page headers are in English, and it’s well worth clicking around for more images of this stunning house.

Here’s a video to give you an idea about what this amazing house looks like:

  1. Now THAT is what you call “devoted to felilnes.” There was a similar house featured on Must Love Cats. They are like indoor kitty playgrounds, and the humans are just allowed to live there. MOL.

  2. Oh My… the boys at home would certainly love that.

    Thinking about it, it might not be so difficult to copy -being a copycat- a bit of the design and try somenthing… let’s think a bit more and see what comes out.

  3. We are absolutely bowled over by this incredible architectural gem! Heather can actually understand Japanese so if any of you want to know what something says on the site, feel free to ask 😉

  4. WOW! What cat wouldn’t want this?!?! I’m putting this on my Santa Paws Wish List RIGHT NOW!
