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."

Cool Home Design: Cat Transit System

Do you have a cat that needs entertainment and distraction from the furnishings? 

Then this idea by the Mad Scientist Home Workshop project is the purrfect solution for you!  

This transit system goes around three sides of the room, with one end giving the cat access to the top of a display cabinet. It also includes some windows so that your cat can have some view of the room while enjoying the walkway. And what we really like about this idea is that it does not consume valuable space for the family since it is installed on parts of the house barely used or occupied.

And as you can see from these photos, we have one happy customer.

New Home Design Trend: Indoor Cat Towers Made From Real Trees

Most indoor "cat trees" are actually multi-level scratchers that don't really look like real trees and therefore, don't provide the lifelike outdoor experience for us, as cat owners, as well as for our furry friends.    

Shelley and Joe DelRocco, an animal lover couple from Florida, decided to step in and create custom made treehouses from real trees and silk leaves. The new pieces are aesthetically-pleasing house plants you will never have to water but will upgrade the total look of your house and provide your kitty with the outdoor feel while being indoor.  
The DelRoccos made their first pet treehouse for their own cats in 2008. Since then, their home business soon grew, and today they sell their designs to cat owners all over the U.S. and beyond: "Our real cat tree with leaves is designed to focus on your cat's true nature, bringing out your cat's primal instincts," the DelRoccos told My modern Met. "This method helps reduce captive stress and encourages your cat to stretch and scratch on the gnarled branches, bark, lichen and all." Check out their beautiful designs on etsy.
