There is no question this is a dream house for cats. Realistically, the owner had to spend more than a day vaccuming, sweeping litter, vaccuming furniture. I own 3. Possibly it's me having to have everything in order...I vaccum 3 days a week. The cutting of claws alone, and the sweeping up takes 20 minutes.

This is also a cat lover's dream...and as Allan said, could become a nightmare to clean...very glad it isn't me.

It's gorgeous but i have to agree it would be hard to keep clean.
i've seen something similar that runs around the outside of a house enclosed in shade cloth, i would love to be able to do that so that kitties can get fresh air & sunlight as well.

wI think it is a very cool house. The cat features are excellent but the house is gorgeous without being ostentatious. Very soothing and colorful without being loud. I wonder if he wants two more cats and a person. I have my tow dogs and tow birds though so I guess not. I don't totally get the kitten thing as I aver brought cats into the house who were older and did just fine.

If you have the money to build it you probably have the money to hire it clean. I'm not trying to put him down. I'm delighted he has chosen to do this. So much fun indeed!

My cats showed me this article and I have been commanded to make our home like his very cool home. He sounds like a wonderful person and his well cared for kitties are very lucky. Thanks for sharing this interesting story.
