We have a spare bedroom not in use and it happens to house an upholstered stool. The cat logic is flawless. We have an upholstered bed that is very comfortable and elevated off the ground. We have our own room. This stool is upholstered, very comfortable and elevated in its own room. It is cat-sized. This is obviously intended for a cat of importance to occupy as his couch. No contest. LOL.
