Man Spends 15 Years Building Elaborate Home for His Family Of Cats

Greg Krueger has spent the better part of the last 15 years bringing together his three passions: "trails and paths...AND CATS!" Now his four cats have a more luxurious home than many of us ever will. #Jealous


Krueger, who was diagnosed with Autism last year, believes that his diagnosis has a lot to do with the fact that he gets along so well with cats and not so well with people. He gets along with cats so well, in fact, that his house is really under the ownership of his four feline friends, who have plush rooms, ornate staircases and the finest walks on which to cat. And he's not done. Krueger says he is constantly thinking of ways to make his house even more cat-friendly, no matter where he is or what he is doing. He's like a modern-day Sarah Winchester, except his house seems more practical and he probably won't charge you $30 to take a tour led by a bored 16-year-old.

Krueger is happy to continue working on the home for his cats, because he says they're "the only ones who have always understood him." And, you know, building a house for the people who have always accepted you? It sounds like a pretty important endeavor. Because even though Krueger technically lives alone, he says "I don't feel like I live alone, even though I'm the only person living here. We're like a family." #Bam (I have already used #Jealous.)



Ugh, why did I watch that? I've been off heartwarming cat-related content since my longtime feline roommate passed away a few months ago. Too many emotions!

Seriously though, that house is awesome and I would totally incorporate some of those ideas for a cat if I didn't rent and had the skills—and, you know, still had a cat (emotions!). Those high paths and perches along the wall seem like good cat fun. I think many of us with animal companions can relate to how much they are family and the pleasures of accommodating them as such.
