Cat Psychologist Designs Purr-fect Indoor "Cat Flat" With 10 Things To Make Them Happy

Sweden's first cat psychologist, Susanne Hellman Holmström, has outlined 10 necessities (In addition to food and water) that cats need in order to be happy: scratching, cleaning its fur, hiding, looking after its territory, playing, sleeping, hunting, spying, discovering, and social connection.

That list can be difficult to achieve for some indoor cats as many people are living in smaller spaces.

Holmstrom decided to find a solution for this problem and collaborated with local Swedish interior designer, Eleonor Moschevitz, to create the purr-fect cat flat with 10 things to make them happy. 

On the outside, it looks like a regular wooden storage cabinet that many would have in their living room, but on the inside...well, that's a cat's heaven.  

The "Cat Flat" has doors that have vertical and horizontal slats that give the piece character while giving you a shadowy peek of your frolicking felines. Standing at three levels, the cabinet lets felines go wild with the freedom to move throughout the layers and play with the various scratchers and toys.

Check out these cool photos.

Modular Cat Home That Changes According To Your Pet Needs

The Japanese designer, He Yuhui, created a new and functional concept in pet furniture- a modular home that will provide your furry friend with everything he needs for a comfortable everyday lifestyle.

The system consists of different components that can be added to the modular frame to keep cats comfortable and entertained in a minimal, noninvasive manner. It uses a familiar frame structure and it is flexible to the owner's space and the cat's demands – it also works for multiple cats!

The designer has imagined everything your pet needs to live their best life possible and included it in the details of this modular cat house. Every traditional shape and element has been reimagined to add a fresh perspective. The scratching board, for example, has been created to evoke an emotional response from the cat and make it a pleasant experience not bound by the stereotypical forms but still meeting the behavioral need to dig/scratch.

The designer explained his concept to Trend Hunter: "It is a balance between new and old. I have used our most common materials and structures in life to design new design styles, extend the life cycle of products, reduce product costs from another angle, and strengthen the relationship between brands and users by expanding product forms and functions."
