When most people get a cat, they often buy toys and cat scratching posts that come with shelves and cubby holes for the cat to hide in. Such cat accessories are usually portable so you can move them around, but for some cat owners, that’s not going far enough to keep the cat happy.

That’s why a man in Japan decided to build a special cat bridge in his house in Tokyo. The cat bridge is a permanent structure so the cat can get from one place to another while taking the effort to walk around the stairs like everyone else.

Making permanent cat accessories for a house may not enhance a home’s value, but it can make your cat happier knowing you built something just for it to ignore if it chooses.
