A “cat paradise” living room, full of trees, shelves and toys for felines, has gone viral on the internet—inspiring other kitty owners to do the same.
The cat daddy shared a video of his living room on TikTok, showing his Bengali cats enjoying all their furniture and toys. In the video he says: “show me something that you spent way too much money on but don’t regret it at all because it’s freaking sick, I’ll go first!” The post has so far reached over 110,500 likes, 1,042 comments and 17,200 reshares.
The room features a set of cat trees, including one high enough to touch the ceiling, loads of wall mounted shelves, a whole set of scratch posts and zero human furniture whatsoever.
According to a recent report from Future Market Insights, about 50% of US households with indoor cats have at least one piece of cat furniture, and a replacement is usually purchased roughly every 5 years.
According to research from Data Bridge, the cat furniture and cat scratchers market will reach an estimated value of $1.15bn by 2028.
