Autistic Man Builds Feline Fun House Full of Secret Passageways For His Cats


St. James, Minnesota - People build bird houses, swing sets, tree houses and even skating rinks for their kids but a Minnesota man has created an indoor fun house just for cats.

If cats were in charge, there would be more homes laid out like this. Homeowner Greg Krueger transformed his St. James home into a kitty castle.

Krueger's home now has nearly 100 yards of overhead catwalks. His four cats get their choice of hideouts throughout the home, all with the proper lighting and padding.

"They're fun to watch, they're very agile." Krueger said. "To me it feels like we're a family living here."

The home is 15 years in the making. Krueger carved through his walls to create elaborate passageways. The home is like a puzzle he say's that he never quite can finish.

"I think about it constantly, I can't fall asleep." Krueger said.

The home is an obsession that started making sense last Fall when he saw a doctor.

"I have Asperger's Syndrome, I'm probably not the best at socializing." Krueger said.

Diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome at the age of 49, Krueger considers his form of Autism to be a blessing that gives him great focus.

"Obviously, my house would not be like this if I didn't have Asbergers." Krueger said. "I don't care, because if I like what I'm doing, I almost don't want to finish what I'm doing."
