Japanese firm designs 'dream home' for cats
Share This Article:
A Japanese house building company called Asahi Kasei has designed and built an apartment perfectly adapted to the keeping of pet cats. The flat is being described as a ‘dream home’ for cats and cat lovers. Asahi Kasei studied cat and human interaction before coming up with the design for a perfect cat home. Originally reported by Inthralld.com, an architecture and interior design website, the apartment has features which are specially designed to accommodate cats. The flat created includes elevated platforms, tunnels, cat flaps in every door, steps to wooden beams and viewing areas which are distributed around the property. The dream home for cats has wooden beams placed high-up around the edges of each room and a litter box in the bathroom next to the commode – with a partition in between them. Fencing around windows allows cats to climb without escaping from the apartment. A caged outdoor area allows cats to get a breath of fresh air but not to escape. Perhaps most importantly are the ‘cat-proof’ surfaces which are included in the home, preventing any possible unwanted scratches and marks.
