Offbeat Pet Homes

By  | 

Why offbeat pet homes? That is a stellar question. You guys remember Heather my chocoholic pal over at Chocolate Bytes? I mention her a lot because:

  • She sends me cool offbeat tips from time to time.
  • She's an all around fun blogger and b5media friend.
  • She has chocolate leads — you do not mess with people who might send you chocolate in the future.

Anyhow, cool cat Heather recently launched a brand spanking new blog here at our Home & Dining channel. If you haven't guessed from the title it's all about (drum roll) PETS. That's right pets! A whole blog about furry, scaly, and um, feathered pets called:


Personally, pets I can do without. I could possibly handle sea monkeys or maybe a pet rock. Don't believe me. Alright about half a year or so ago I had major pet trouble that I blogged about at another blog. Can you guess what the pet was?

So an animal girl I'm not; but I did find some awesome offbeat pet homes. If you're allowing your dog or cat to live in blahsville well, shame on you because there are other options.

Like this, The Bow Haus from one of the best blogs around Urbanzeitgeist


Or maybe this home for fish from another fine read, CubeMe.


Or how about a doghouse that starts at $10,000?


Here are the stats on the above doghouse: This 80-square foot mini-mansion is designed to compliment a traditional Spanish-Mediterranean estate. There is plenty of space inside for dogs and kids to playfully co-exist, and pint-sized designer furnishings for both to enjoy. A doggie-shaped flat-screen TV, terra-cotta tile floors, arched windows, air-conditioning, and plenty of toys and treats fill the inside of this luxury estate.

Here's the interior of one of the doggie mansions from, no surprise; Doggie Mansions.


To say I'm stunned is putting it lightly.

This next one is just about the most amazingly fitting (for this blog) pet home I've EVER SEEN! This is only for savvy prefab pets.


Way too cool. Created by Pre-Fab Pets and thanks to Grassroots Modern for the heads up.

Last up two cat homes: The kitty duplex and kitty townhouse condo (Lord) from ClassyPetShop.com.

Technically I could go on for days; maybe all year. You would not believe the wacky things people build for their pets. It's astounding. However, I've made it pretty clear that I am not your girl for pets. That would be Heather. If you have a pet friend than visit The Food Bowl today.
