Bob Walker and Frances Mooney share their feline-friendly San Diego digs — known as the Cats' House — with nine kitties, plus a Dachshund.

Indoor kitties often enjoy surveying the scene from up high, so Walker has installed plenty of climbing posts wrapped in colorful sisal and cat ledges.
Wooden planks can be mounted to walls, providing cats with places to hang out.
A winding, colorful staircase enables Walker's cats to explore from all angles — and get in some exercise.
