Peter Cohen bought this house in 1988 and it came with two feral cats. Both were hit by cars and, unfortunately, one died; the other needed to stay indoors because of its injuries and Peter decided to get more cats to keep this one company. One thing led to another and he eventually ended up with 15 cats in his home. Being a home builder and designer, he decided they needed more things to do, so he started working on cat walks. To date, he estimates he has spent between $40,000 and $50,0000 on his cat-themed home renovations.
The redesign didn't stop with just catwalks. He also has four Roomba robot vacuums that wander the home to keep the cat hair in check and he designed a closet to put the litter-boxes in which includes exhaust fans for ventilation. To finish it off, he has a koi fish pond and not a single fish has been eaten by the cats. They simply enjoy watching them swim around.
It is impressive not only what he has accomplished, but that he would take on an endeavor such as this. When he bought the house, he could have chosen to ignore the feral cats and could have ignored them when they were hit by cars, but he made sure the hurt cat was treated and welcomed it into his house with open arms. He continued to take things a step further and another step further with the adoption of the others and the time and care he has put into the catwalks throughout his house. The wonderful and beautiful work he has done is no doubt appreciated by the cats that act as his roommates and it is inspiring to see the care he gives them. Check out the video to see all he has accomplished and hear him recite the names of all those cats.
