First, it's clear at looking at the whole house, the man's expenditure was pocket change to him. The house overall is not a shack.

However, I dearly love my kitties but, even though some of the renovations are clever and most definitely fun to the cats, it's a bit creepy to me.

Each to his own, though. If he's happy, well...

I would hate to be the R.E. agent trying to sell that place later.

You would just have to show it to cat lovers.

Maybe he'll leave the house to his cats (complete with caregiver) in perpetuity.

Much as I love cats 18 is a bit excessive.

18 cats would be a bit much. I've thought of doing one room like that, but not more than that. A book store in town has a few cat staircases and it's not unusual to discover a nice kitty staring down as one shops.

18 kids would be a lot too, but people used to have families that large.

I noticed the article did not reference a wife. HehHeh.

I love my kitty, but notice I use "kitty" in the singular tense.
