A furniture allows both human & cat activities to co-exist & having independent space simultaneously. Limited space in urban housing, having furniture that are minimal & multiple usage to reduce footprint needed for a purpose. Pets are good companion, yet we face issue to find suitable place to provide sufficient space accommodation that cater their needs. Resting & play. Catpod stool provides individual usage for both the owner & pet. Cats can play the podball upon its releases. Chasing, pushing or rolling around in & out of it. Easily attached onto the stool. Hidden space for cats to access.
