      this sounds quite insane, but what if you drill out a hole next to some of the doors, and then make it like a tunnel, but at the entrance and exit, there are like these triangle things along the top, so when the cats walk through, it scratches their back!

    Are you building a Catio so they can go outside and see the nature fresh air, any climb tree branches car trees, or sleep in the sunshine, I can picture your kitties out there already.I built one in my yard it’s much smaller than yours, but my cats go out anytime of year, safe from invaders and they cannot escape, they love it, watching moths and spiders at night, birds and bees, in the day.. not even a mouse could squeeze through the wire.

    I've always wondered with those walkways and such...if a cat throws up a hairball or has an accident on it, how do you clean it? Dust it (although active furry bodies will act as living dusters)?

    I have windows inset into window boxes like your design shows. I have top-down-bottom up honeycomb blinds. That would be good for your lower windows because they don’t just open up from the bottom, but open down from the top so you can keep them lowered at the bottom for privacy, but still let in light from the top. The honeycombs fabric has different thickness so you can have some light filter through if you want and the room isn’t totally dark when closed. For the top windows you could possibly even have automated operating blinds that work with a remote control.

    The cat walks that are high up, how are you going to clean them . . . a vacuum cleaner with a long hose & special attachment? Maybe Japan has some sort of manual tool on a long handle designed for that since a high cat walks are common there.

    Idk man, I know this might not ever be read, but... Jun, your English is brilliant. You said your English wasn't that great in the Q&A vid, but your English is often times more eloquent and better than my mother's English [I'm half German on her side] and despite the fact that you might not have many opportunities to practice your English you should take pride in the fact that your grammar and pronunciation is often times better than most people with a primary language closer to English than Niongo.

Celebrate the family tonight, lite a candle, a flashlight, a torch, or even a sparkler this evening as an act of Celebration. If it is a candle, place it in the front window away from the curtains. If you have a flashlight, torch, or sparkler, go outside for safety. Think of the wonder of this 2021 Winter rare cold. Then come inside have a cup of something warm to drink. With the beginnings of a couple, the parents that came before and the future of the children. Celebrate your past families, the family you have now, and the family you will have in the future.

    Aww I really like all those different ideas!! I wish I could purchase some that are nice like that! Japan does things better. Two of my 4 cats are disabled. 3 are turning 10 this year! One, Kitty, has been blind her whole life. Lost her eyesight as a kitten due to an infection that ate away at her corneas. I have my cat tower next to my bed that she's able to hop on to get to my bed. And then my other kitty Odin, only has 3 legs. It doesn't stop him from running super fast but I couldn't make my cat tower to it's full height (which was 6 feet/182cm roughly) because he fell from the top straight away! My tower is nice since it's out of the way and wouldn't obstruct my normal walkway like a ramp might. I'm so excited for all the new and exciting things in store for you guys and your kitties!!! :D

    Try to have access to all the places your cats can go. Because some cats when they are sick tend to hide. It’s a rare moment, but you don’t want to have to worry about it especially when they get older. Your design ideas look so beautiful by the way.
