Any cat owner knows how they love to climb to high perches and survey their kingdom below. However, felines often need some help from us, and we happily oblige. Switzerland-based designer and writer Brigitte Schuster documented how we aid our furry friends in their quest for climbing. Her new book called Swiss Cat Ladders explores outdoor cat stairways in the city of Bern. It focuses on the different approaches people take to create complex scaffolding networks so the creatures can traverse from the ground to stories-high windows.


Homemade cat ladders can take different forms. A vertical pathway is sometimes made from a preexisting architectural element like treads attached to a drain pipe. In other cases, the ladders are affixed long after the buildings were constructed. They're slats zig-zagged along an exterior wall; or, in more precarious forms, the ladders are a thin walkway between a tree and a balcony. No matter how they're built, each offers a way for a feline to exercise its love of climbing.


In addition to pictures of cat ladders, Schuster’s book includes diagrams and an essay exploring “sociological, architectural and aesthetic perspectives” of the structures. Swiss Cat Ladders is available for pre-order through Schuster’s website.
