I bet your are wondering what kind of fortune a kitty has to pay to have one of these? Well, guess what — the answer is nothing. That’s because they are shelters for the homeless cats living in New York City. For the past three years, a project called Architects for Animals has been creating winter shelters to help protect New York’s feral cats from the elements. Each year, there is an exhibition and reception of these fabulous shelters, held by Architects for Animals and the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals to benefit the New York City Feral Cat Initiative.

The photos you see here are from the past two years. Last year, a lucky cat even got to pose in one of the shelters!
