Their designs have now been put up for auction to benefit FixNation, a pro-spay and neuter organisation.

Twelve firms in all, including HOK, Perkins + Will, Knowhow Shop, Standard Architects, RNL Design, Formation Association and more contributed designs – some of them very unusual, others impressively practical to their feline programme.

“Architects for Animals invited LA’s top architecture and design firms to build and donate creative and functional outdoor dwellings for cats,” said the group.
