A Southern California man transformed his 1988 home into a one-of-a-kind paradise for his rescue cats – all 15 of them.
On the outside, Peter Cohen's house seems rather unassuming, beautiful but somewhat tucked away in the midst of tropical trees.
But inside is a different story. Almost every inch of the 4-bedroom, 2.5 bathroom California home is fitted with some cat-centric contraption: catwalks that form a cat superhighway of elaborate stairs, archways, tunnels, perches and platforms, a koi pond with an underwater camera, and even a spiral slide for the more adventurous cats.
The house is artfully decorated and crafted with a keen architectural eye. The catwalks are painted in enchanting colors and flow whimsically throughout the house, transforming the cat superhighways into utilitarian works of art.
If you're worried about the odor that would come from 15 cats using a total of 22 litterboxes, the cats' bathrooms are essentially self-contained. The litterboxes are set up on tiered levels inside closets that constantly vent the malodorous air outside.
In an interview with Houzz, Cohen explains the inspiration for building this one-of-a-kind cat paradise. What do you think of Cohen's ultimate cat playground?
