Los Angeles-based architects and designers have created some of the coolest, strangest outdoor structures for the city’s street cats that we have ever seen.
Since Los Angeles has one of the largest numbers of street cats in the U.S., between one to three million, this cause is very important.
FixNation’s Co-Founder and Executive Director Karn Myers said:
“This year’s cat shelters were extraordinarily creative, and the designers put a great deal of time and thought into how cats would actually interact with the shelters. They are truly works of art with a practical application, and all the shelters are showcased in our online auction as well.”
Check out the 13 outdoor structures below:
Padded cylinders on the inside; a carpeted conveyor belt on the outside. Looks good to us!
I want to “know how” I can see what is inside this kitty structure. A little TV? Maybe a little fireplace?

Maybe cats and birds can live in peace.
Is it a harp? Is it a bridge? Either way, it looks fun!

This looks like the front of a cat’s face. Not to get political, but I feel like a certain president might enjoy this design.
Are these not the coolest, strangest cat structures that you’ve ever seen? It almost makes you wish you were a cat.
We can’t wait to see what sort of designs these artists come up with next year!
