    Cats love snoozing. And for some reason, they love snoozing high up.

    Bookshelves, fish tanks, pianos…you name it, they’ll find a surface to settle down on for 40 winks.

    Ickle, however, has had an entire Indiana Jones-like bridge built for him to lounge across.

    Mike and Megan, who together own catastrophicreations.com, came up with the idea after being ‘discouraged’ by how unimaginative a lot of cat furniture was.

    ‘When we brought him home, we started looking online for the perfect cat furniture to outfit our home with for our new addition,’ Mike writes on Bored Panda.

    ‘We were quite discouraged by how all the cat trees out there looked really generic. The two of us decided to build something unique for him and with no prior woodworking experience (not even 8th-grade woodshop), we hand-built him his very own Indiana Jones-styled cat bridge.

    ‘As you can tell from the photos, he dug it.’

    After building the bridge, the couple then set about creating a cat wall for Ickle to use in order to get up that high.

    ‘He ended up enjoying the bridge so much that we decided to start building them out of our third story apartment part-time and selling them on Etsy.

    ‘We received an incredible response from our Etsy customers and have since improved upon our original ideas and expanded our furniture line quite a bit. We’ve continued focusing on unconventional cat furniture ideas and in four years have turned our side project into a really cool business.’

    All this is despite the fact that Mike is actually really allergic to cats.

    It’s only thanks to cat-obsessive Megan, who couldn’t contemplate a home without a feline friend, that Ickle has all of this.

    ‘Although I never knew this was my dream, and often wake up at night sneezing, I love our three cats dearly and would’ve never had the opportunity to be doing what I love for a living without them.’
