I live in a 424 square foot condo and don't really have use for the storage spaces that came with the condo. Even the pantry is of no use to me. I live a zero waster lifestyle, which means that don't buy food that is packed. In plastic or cans I just don't buy them. This means I had a nice size pantry to do something with and since I have two cat I thought, hey what about a cat room.
