Cats are natural-born climbers and most of them enjoy being in high places. Whether it’s a high shelf or the top of the refrigerator, kitties feel really comfortable in the upper half of the room, keeping an eye on the surroundings below them with greater confidence.
Recently, Rob Coutu from Windsor, Connecticut, decided to embrace these instincts of his cats and built them two epic towers. The well-crafted structures provide them with both comfort and entertainment, and his little furballs are absolutely loving them.

“I have two cats, a red tabby and a Savannah cat,” Rob introduced his pets to Bored Panda, adding that the Savannah likes the towers so much, he has taken over both of them and doesn’t want to let the tabby use them.
It all started when Rob saw a real looking tree that someone else made. However, the BIM manager just could not get the design settled in his mind. This eventually made him return to his roots and he decided to build one he knew would be fun and practical but look sharp for both the cats and the humans as well.
“The larger tower was built last and is almost complete,” Rob explained. “It incorporates some design changes based on how the cats interacted with the first one, such as the balconies and the deck landings. The dormer came from Zach, the Savannah, always looking up inside the roof of the other one.”
The cat lover said the material cost for the project is still mounting, and currently stands somewhere around $3,500 plus the tons of labor he has put in. But everything’s worth it. “Zach has been very involved from the start. I can’t even find a word that best describes how much he loves it and how much he uses it.”
