Architects For Animals Design Intricate Outdoor Dwellings For Cats

At first glance, these abstract structures may look like futuristic furniture pieces, which they are in a sense – but not for humans.

They’re custom-built shelters for outdoor, stray and feral cats, submitted by 14 U.S. architecture firms as part of a fundraiser for Architects for Animals, a nonprofit which raises awareness for animals by building better shelters to house them.

The fun and inventive structures – which offer cats refuge, protection from the harsh outside world, and playtime – were all designed pro-bono, and then donated to FixNation, a free Los Angeles-based spray-and-neuter group.
