A series of cat houses designed by US based architects were created for Architects for Animals “Giving Shelter” fundraiser. At first glance, these abstract structures may look like futuristic furniture pieces. While in fact, they are custom-built shelter for outdoor, stray and feral cats to raise awareness for animals by giving them better shelters to house them. Some of these cat houses not only offer cats refuge protection from the harsh outside world and and playtime, but also double up as bench where human can sit on it and interact with cats. There are some other interesting designs and you can find more detailed information on dailymail.
How much you like your cat? Would you spend $35,000 converting your spacious California home into an cat fantasy land. With the help of construction company Trillium Enterprises, one Californian man renovated the whole house for his eighteen cats. Each room, from master bedroom to home office, from kitchen to bathroom, there are some playful accommodations for the his’s furry little friends. Ramps, walkways, climbing pole, ledges, custom tunnels and paths, all for felines to play around in. Moreover, the house is also equipped with a ventilation system to regulate the air and aid with the pesky odors that come with having eighteen cats under one roof. Sounds crazy? But don’t worry if you can do that much for your cat. A bowl full of food, some cuddle/play time, and your love is all your pets need.

If you like spending time with your pets, you probably will love the Rocking-2-Gether Chair! Designed by Houston architect Paul Kweton, this chair is a hybrid between a rocking chair and dog/cat house. The idea behind the project is to create some relaxing shared moment between people and animals. The prototype chair is made out of CNC milled birch plywood. The density and amount of the CNC milled ‘ribs’ can be controlled with differently sized wooden spacers, ergo controlling the visual connection between the person and his/her pet. Love the design? Too bad it is still a prototype but Paul is looking for manufacturers and distributors. Hope we can see it soon on market. [source]
