Cat cafes first appeared in Asia. Now Asia may be setting a new trend called cat flats. Instead of filling an ordinary dwelling with cat toys and scratching posts, the idea behind cat flats is to turn your home into a permanent climbing and exploration place just for your cat.
Tiny arched doorways connecting rooms, shelves that serve as climbing frames and scratching surfaces doubling as decorative features are the norm.
“The cat business is booming. I don’t remember it being like this three years ago,” says Szuti Tsai, founder of Taipei-based ST Studio Design, which designs cat flats.
If you want to make your cat as comfortable as possible, consider turning your home into a cat flat. Then consider turning over your bank account and all your financial assets over to your cat as well while you check yourself into an asylum.
