Some cats have it all. Seriously.
For some cat owners, their furry friends are equal to (or in some cases, greater than) humans, and they have the digs to prove it.
Take, for instance, the adorable little bedroom Twitter user @CinnamonBear9 shared with the world this week. Kitty has a bed, complete with bedspread that matches mom's and dad's. He has pictures on the walls, a rug, a miniature chair, some tiny yarn balls, and a mini scratching post. And the pièce de résistance? A wooden wall frame that holds a tablet so the cat can watch bird videos on YouTube.

"Here is the bedroom we finished for our cat this weekend," they wrote. "He actually goes in to nap and watch birds on YouTube. :)"
No, he really does, though.

This couple is not the first to share an epic tiny home they made for their cat. Check out the posh pad of this cat from @newbuild_newlyweds on TikTok. And this is after a makeover of the first fancy closet home their kitty was fortunate to have.

Don't worry, the cat can't get trapped in that closet. In another video, they showed the most adorable cat door ever made (look at the back!) that allows the cat to go in and out at her leisure.

If you're thinking that there's no way a cat needs that kind of castle, you're probably right. But that doesn't mean they don't appreciate it. This puddy tat made herself at home in a kid's dollhouse, after all.
@CinnamonBear9 Oh gosh! Too sweet. This reminded me of a snap I took a few years back of one of our beloved puddy t… https://t.co/RQz4a5CgH1— Save our Soil (@Save our Soil)1618509629.0
Maybe it was supposed to be a hint for her owners. "I desire a cat cave, complete with wall decor. Make it so, hooman."
Then again, most cats are never more blissful than when they are sitting in a simple cardboard box, so...yeah. No pressure to keep up with Joneses' fancy-schmancy cat cribs.
Oh to be a cat in a box https://t.co/MpBwsm9B5g— 🔪🔪🔪 (@🔪🔪🔪)1618206898.0

However, there's always Peter Cohen, the home builder with 22 rescue cats who transformed his home into a complete playground for cats, who puts everyone else to shame.
(Make sure your cats aren't around to see this. They'll side-eye you forever.)
(Also, can the Cohens adopt me, please?)

Those of us with cats know that cats are quirky and finicky and there's no real pleasing them no matter what we do. There is affection when they feel like it and contentedness at random. Their alternating aloofness and demands for attention are what make cats the oddly lovable creatures they are, and their independent spirits are what draw us to them in the first place. (That and their gorgeousness. Cats really are the perfect specimen.)
So whether you treat your feline friend to the life of a princess or a pauper, just know that they may or may not care either way. It probably depends on the day, the alignment of the stars, the direction of the wind, or some other variable that only cats know and refuse to confess.
But if putting together a home makeover for your cat makes you happy, by all means, knock yourself out. If your cat ends up loving it, fabulous—your work will have been worth it. And if your cat ends up ignoring it completely, at least you've got some adorable photo ops out of it.
