sneak peek: best of cats

by Amy Azzarito

so monday went to the dogs, but today it’s all about the kitties! i’m a little prejudice here – i have two little beasties of my own (actually among all the design*sponge editors, there’s quite a number of kitties!) one of my favorite kitty characteristics is the way they’ll get comfortable anywhere but an actual cat bed! gotta love that stubborn mind! –amy a.

[image above: this lucky kitty lives with furniture designers bill hilgendorf and maria cristina rueda of uhuru, who built an awesome kittyloft in their brooklyn apartment.]
