Peter Cohen, a cat lover, has turned his home in Santa Barbara, California into a real theme park for his 22 rescue cats, with dozens of catwalk, boxes, shelters and raised spaces for their adventures inside.
The house is covered 22 cats – Smokey, Vanilla, Poppy seeds, Butter, Nutter, Coffee, Donut, Secret, Cheesecake, Chocolate, MiniBean, Climber, Mikan, Mango, Nugget, Smudge, Jupiter Jones, Blackbird , Cookie Monster, The Professor, Crumple and Rumple – Who now spend whole days doing the kind of excursions dreamed of by many kittens.
Cohen himself designed all the features of the house for the felines, with his carpenters finishing the job, so that this environment benefits both him and the cats.
Since the 1990s, home builder Peter Cohen has spent thousands of dollars to turn his home into a cat paradise that he saves from the streets.
Today, he shares his home with 22 adorable rescued cats, all adopted from the shelter. Cohen wants to give these cats, who have trouble getting adopted, a place of their own.
“We, humans, can not solve all the big problems,” said Cohen (thedodo), “but we can solve small ones.” Each cat we adopt from a shelter is one more sentient being that now has a home and love and care. It is that simple. “
It started as an idea to build a safe haven for his cats and now led to the mission to help find a cure for cats with FIP.
