Note: brief sad cat stories (injury/death) at the start, but it gets happier after that.

Also, at one point he says of the cats, "they put their *hands* in the water..." (and they've never eaten a fish*).

I'm glad they addressed the litter box situation: 15 cats == 22 litterboxes, custom ventilation systems.

I'm happy that these people exist.

ME: So envious! Well, his house must be a wreck and smell terrible.
VIDEO: Negative pressure keeps smells in closets, and we have five Roombas.
ME: :(

I have all three of my cat's litter boxes in closets, but now I need to figure out that negative pressure thing. I guess they have to vent outside? Hmmm... i sense a future question for ask.

Probably easier to implement in California than in colder climes.

True, but I've been doing this in Wisconsin during the winter for the past two years as a way to deal with the build up of co2 and to remove heat from my fish room. All things considered, it didn't move the needle on heating costs very much. You have to be careful if you have a home that is well sealed though- you can create a back draft of exhaust fumess. We were 'lucky' our house is quite drafty.

... And now I'm wondering how we can work the two cat boxes into doing this. They're in the bathroom- maybe a Brazil-esque series of tubes to the bathroom vent?

This is adorable! My cat is a rescue and would love to have a house setup like this! Here is another similar house!
