2. CAT FRIENDLY NEKKO DREAM HOUSE
With over 150 feet of skywalks, tunnels, and stairways, this kitty paradise was created by Peter Cohen in Santa Barbara for his 18 rescue cats. Peter also plays soothing music all day long for his cats as it is said to have a calming effect of slowing the breathing and heart rate. Although this is a huge-scale project, we can definitely see how just taking a few elements such as the colourful staircase or funky skywalks would keep your kitty entertained for hours.Via Catser.
3. IKEA HACKED CAT PLAY AREA
If you don’t fancy doing a huge project, one way of creating an area for your cat is by customising or hacking pre-made furniture. In his project, David has bought IKEA cubes but you could also use furniture you already have, simply adding cat beds, scratching posts and toys. Via Ikeahackers.net.
4. WALL MOUNTED CAT PLAYGROUND
This amazing cat playground was created by German designer and carpenter Stefan Hofmann,who after moving into his new apartment unintentionally inherited a cat named Mowgli from its previous tenants. Stefan fell in love with Mowgli and created this play area out of birch completely by hand, soon starting his own boutique cat furniture company. Via ehow.com.

The combination of light wood and extra touch of greenery gives it an unrivalled modern feel and is sure to make the perfect napping spot for any feline. Via Freshome.com.
