With summer on the way, it’s not difficult to imagine the pleasure of sitting in a rocking chair on the porch as you watch the sunset with a beverage in hand.
What would make that even better? Rocking with your beloved companion animal, of course.
Architect Paul Kweton has designed a rocking chair with just that intention. The prototype for his “rocking-2-gether” chair combines a rocking chair with a pet house so that you and your furry friend can enjoy the comfort and relaxation of sitting together.
According to Kweton, the hybrid furniture piece “combines the idea of shelter and body relaxation and pushes its functionality to a different, more personal level.”

Reddit user BillyAppletini wins the award for Best Human and Cat Friend. What endeavored to be just an amusing joke has turned into a phenomenon.
Fulfilling every geeky cat owner’s dream, Billy spent about a month designing, planning, and constructing a “CAT-AT” modeled after the four-legged imperial weapons featured in The Empire Strikes Back. All for his friend, who’s a lover of cats and Star Wars.
But the awesomeness doesn’t stop there. The interior of the CAT-AT features a decadent kitty lounge, complete with disco ball, artwork, and a fully stocked (fake!) bar.
Billy says he was planning on making it look as though his friend’s cats had ordered the CAT-AT on Amazon, but after wrecking his apartment to build the thing, he simply wanted to deliver the cat condo. His friend was thrilled to receive the amazing gift!
May the Furce be with you!
