Abstract

With the development of urbanization, young people are under high pressure, which means that they don’t have much time to company with family members. Keeping pets can be a useful solution to address these problems and offer emotional support. More and more people regard pets as family members. The increase in the number of pets has led to the boom of pets industries. However, the pet product market is still in its initial stage and needs more attention and research. According to the demand, the interactive cat furniture which meets the needs of cats and cat owners has been designed in this paper. First, through the literature review, the advantages and disadvantages of human-animal-interaction have been explored. After analyzing related case studies, it summarizes the principles of the interactive pet furniture design. Second, based on the observation and questionnaire about habits and interactive activities between human and cats in Nottingham, the United Kingdom, this study proposes a cheap, practical, and interactive cat furniture.The feasibility and applicability of the design is proved and applied through practice. Finally, it concludes with a reflection on the research focus, design process, and outcome.
