This Arizona Home Is Purr-fect for Cat Lovers
Lifestyle| | By Robin Milling
Attention cat lovers: there is a home for sale in Concho, Arizona that is absolutely purr-fect for you.
From the outside it looks like an unremarkable log cabin – but inside it’s a must-see feline paradise covered from floor to vaulted ceiling with cat images and cat-themed memorabilia. Your cat will feel right at home among cat-themed jigsaw puzzles that line the ceilings and specially-built walkways for them to explore. A dozen cat condos — and a large cat castle made from river rock — provide shelter for your kitty.
“Contemporary eccentric full log sided custom home on 20+/- acres for the cat fancier!” the listing with Century 21 High Country reads. “If you love cats this is the home for you! If not bring your sandblaster! Custom build, hardwood kitchen cabinets (Oak, Lacewood, and Bocote) artistically accented with river rock. Cat walkways and in great room Medieval cat castle with different levels (stone). All interior doors custom built (wood). Must see to believe it does exist!!! Once in a lifetime find extremely fun home!”
This multi-level log home, built in 1992, sits on over 20 acres with two bedrooms and one bathroom.
No need for magazines in this room as it’s a visual cornucopia. The bathroom floor is covered in cat mats with a cat-themed shower curtain. Inside the tub is a wall filled with cat figurines. Even the smallest spaces have cat images — like the toilet flusher.
This home is a hoarder’s happiness — or a germaphobe’s nightmare — because every nook and cranny is cat cluttered. There are cat plushies hanging onto each other, and a teacup display that has cats plastered on them. There is no evidence that people slept here — as there are no photos of the bedrooms — but your cat will be in scratchy heaven in the room devoted to the toys. It is truly for cat lovers.
Real estate agent Elizabeth Keller said the owner spent about 10 years meticulously decorating every room. You would think the owner had hundreds of cats in the house — but in fact there were only three.
“You could not even tell she had cats in there. All the pictures on the walls are basically postcards or pictures she’s cut out of magazines,” Keller told The Arizona Republic.
The kitchen doesn’t look like it’s seen much action. It has one pan hanging on a hook, but the island table is covered with cat photos.
There is a stand-alone stove if you decide to prepare a fancy feast.
Cat lovers, this catopia can be yours for $240,000.
