The Tiny House trend has now extended to cats, as seen in viral videos from Hong Kong showcasing the extravagant "Feng's Cat Villa." With the caption, "The fancy cat villa brings all the cats to the yard," the video displays a luxurious cat villa that is supposedly meant for stray cats. However, upon closer inspection, many of the featured cats appear to be pampered pets rather than strays. This video of the "fanciest Cat Villa known to man" was uploaded on YouTube and has since gone viral on various social media platforms, including Hong Kong-based media 9GAG. If you or someone you know possesses carpentry skills, imagination, and yard space, building a cat cottage like this could be an amusing new project.
Additionally, those caring for colony cats might find inspiration from this cat villa. The Cat Villa is an impressive structure that bears resemblance to a finely crafted kids' playhouse in terms of scale. It is the intricate details that make it so appealing, although the cats seem to enjoy the oversized scratching post the most. One noteworthy feature of the Cat Villa is its massive clear viewing wall. While this looks visually appealing, it might present some issues. The wall may become difficult to keep clean, and if sunlight were to hit it directly, the structure could quickly overheat. To counteract this, a built-in air conditioning system is included.
However, without proper air conditioning, the temperature inside could become dangerously high for sleeping cats. Nonetheless, the structure appears to be well-shaded in the video. Such a viewing wall would be ideal indoors, perhaps in a cat café. It is also worth noting the presence of cat doors and a larger door for easy access during cleaning and maintenance. The Cat Villa also boasts a decorative tiled roof adorned with statues and artificial foliage, a domed observation and climbing wall referred to as the "space bowl," and a large wooden running wheel. While these features contribute to the villa's impressive appearance, constructing and securing such large and heavy structures would require the expertise of professionals to ensure safety. Additionally, the builders have included a separate private condo for a cat named "Bite Bite," resembling a penthouse apartment on the roof. Drama ensues when a newcomer tomcat dares to enter Bite Bite's penthouse suite. Overall, it is clear that these cat owners are having a great time designing a creative custom cat house. The video showcases their dedication to providing a special place for their furry companions. The Cat Villa is undoubtedly a labor of love. For those lacking carpentry skills or tools, it is still possible to have fun creating a cat playhouse using cardboard boxes, paint, and imagination. Recently, Jess revealed a "Purrbie Dream House" with a Gothic twist for Meowloween. This pink cat palace is designed for indoor use only and features intricate details similar to a dollhouse.
While some cats had a blast exploring the Dream House, one cat named Bond seemed hesitant, possibly due to a recent unpleasant experience while being caught in a trap. However, he eventually warmed up to the idea after observing from a distance for some time. Marmalade, on the other hand, was ready to party. Creating a cat playland like the Purrbie Dream House may be more achievable for most people compared to the Cat Villa. Nevertheless, it still requires careful planning and construction time. Jess, with the help of two others, spent a total of 75 hours on the actual building and painting process. The end result is undoubtedly impressive. In conclusion, whether it's building an extravagant Cat Villa or a creative cardboard playhouse, these videos demonstrate the endless possibilities for providing cats with unique and exciting environments.
