Peter Cohen, a home builder and the co-owner of Trillium Enterprises, transformed his home into a feline playland, complete with overhead catwalks, spiral pathways and custom odor-free closets to house 22 litter boxes for his 15 rescued cats. Cohen said during an interview with Houzz: "When we bought this house in 1988, it came with two outdoor feral cats. And then one of them was killed when he was hit by a car and then the second one was hit by a car...So we made her an indoor cat and then to get her company, because the other one had been killed, we went to the shelter and adopted a couple of cats and that just started down the road.
