CATable satisfies your cat's curiosity creatively.

If you have a cat, you know they can’t resist exploring a passageway. In the past, many of these opportunities involved the cat getting into places that not only were not designed for them, but also places you didn’t want the cat to be- a hole in the wall, a cardboard box, or even your bureau drawer. Increasingly, cats are becoming significant members of the family, so much so that one designer is designing furniture with cats specifically in mind.

Designed by Hong Kong based architecture company Lycs, comes the CATable, which creator Ruan Hao calls, ‘a table for us, and a paradise for cats’. The CATable is a work table with tunnels, crannies, holes, and passageways built for your cat to explore and sleep in. It will keep your cat busy while remaining functional and stylish for you.

The CATable is part of the world-wide trend of people sharing their homes with their pets, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. While It was first shown at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, or Milan furniture fair, earlier this month- no release date has been set.
