Meet The Man Who Has Spent 20 Years Building A Cat Playground For His 22 Rescued Kitties.

Pets make a great addition to any family. They bring immeasurable love and joy to their humans and the feeling is mutual. What is even more special is when the animals are rescued from a life of hardships.

Cats have a magical power over their pet owners. Despite their nonchalant and sometimes aloof demeanour, these felines make their persons do just about anything for them to make life that much more happy. Peter Cohen wanted to make sure his cats loved living at home with him, to the point he took his building skills and experience to do the ultimate house transformation.

Cohen, co-founder of Trilium Enterprises, lives in a 3,000 square foot cat heaven in Goleta, California, with his 22 felines.

The cat mansion has 150 feet of catwalks, spiral staircases, tunnels, perches, and anything to keep his crew of whiskers happy and active.

"We’ve been building catwalks for 20 years and have learned a great deal from our cats what they like and do not like," says Cohen.

They are also very careful on the type of cat they adopt. "We try to take the kittens that other people don’t want, especially kittens that have been traumatized," he told the Huffington Post.
