When we talk about Home Renovating, it usually consists of something like Redoing the Bathroom or Installing New Kitchen Counters, not Transforming their House into a Wondrous Cat Playland. Nevertheless, that is exactly what Peter Cohen did with his Home in Santa Barbara, California (USA).
Peter first discovered his obsession for Adopting Cats when he bought his Home in 1988 and found that 2 Feline Occupants were included with the Property.
As Peter quickly became a Bona Fide “Cat Person”, he continued to Adopt more and more Rescue Cats until finally, in order to accommodate his Furry Roommates, he started Adding Wall Fixtures and Catwalks to his Home.
His Home has since been transformed into the House of Nekko, which means “House of Cats” in Japanese. Thanks to Peter’s Background in Construction Work, Every Room in his House has been adorned with Colorful Hiding Places, Scratching Posts, and Winding wall-to-wall Walkways. He even installed a Koi Pond!!!
Peter is currently the Proud Parent of 22 Rescue Cats, many of which he rescued because they were Less Likely to be Adopted based on their Fur Color or Personality.
Not only that, Pater used the House of Nekko’s Internet Fame to run his Charity, Zen By Cat. The Nonprofit raises Money for Organizations researching Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP), a previously incurable disease that affects a small percentage of Newborn Kittens.
After researching the Disease for 50 years, Scientists were finally able to cure 25 Cats of FIP within the last few years, one of which was Peter’s Cat Smokey, and it is partially thanks to his dedicated Fundraising.
