Most cat lovers adore their furry companions so much that they’re willing to put up with the shedding, collateral damage to furniture, and interrupted sleep. So what does it take to live in harmony with your beloved cat?

Short of turning into a cat yourself, setting up your apartment for compatible cohabitation will help immensely. To do so, it may take a few unique pieces. Take a look at this roundup of apartment fixings that will keep you and your little Snowball content.

1. Furniture for People and Cats

Located in Japan and Hong Kong, THE9LIFE describes itself as a lifestyle brand of home products and furniture for stylish people who share their homes with cats, especially where space is a luxury. Check out the Afternoon Table; I think it’s a really creative piece even if cat-less.

2. Making a Lounge Space for Your Cat

We have bean bags and couches, but Fluffy is not always welcome on them. And even if he is, it isn’t his chill space. Invest in a Cat Crib; it’ll feel like his seat in the living room and save your furniture from the fur onslaught each time he takes a catnap.

3. Stock Your Place with Things for Both

When we’re not fiddling with our smartphones, we’re on the iPad. We have no problem keeping ourselves entertained, but let’s extend the privilege to Felix. The Tipsy Nip Play Pack comes with a Tickle Gherkin and a Tipsy Nip Ball made from non-toxic materials and stuffed with 100% organic catnip.

4. Keep It Fresh Always

And for those days when the air could be a tad fresher around the apartment, don’t blame the cat. Just use an Ever Bamboo to not only deodorize, but dehumidify. It’s made from eco-friendly and sustainable sources and can be used for up to a year. You can both play happy in the apartment now.
