While the video titled “Autistic man builds feline fun house” was published on YouTube back on Sept. 10, 2014, it has recently gone viral earning more than 1.8 million views since. The video features a man from Minnesota named Greg Kruegar who made an indoor fun house just for his four cats.

“That goes to the basement. That goes to a closet. Charlie Brown goes from the closet to the stairway. They’re fun to watch, they’re very agile,” Kruegar says about his cats in the video. “I just love trails and paths, and cats of course and so I’ve just linked those passions together.”

At the age of 49, Greg Kruegar was finally diagnosed with Asperger syndrome, which he considers to be a blessing as this form of autism gives him great focus. He also says that he is “probably not the best at socializing” due to his Asperger’s Syndrome.

For more than 15 years, Kruegar has been carving through his walls to create almost 100 yards of overhead catwalks and hideouts with proper padding and lighting. He says it is like that he never quite finishes and he is still thinking about the design.

“It’s been said that all cats have Asperger Syndrome so I think that might be one reason why I really love cats is that I kind of think that I can understand their personality really well,” says Krueger.

The “Autistic man builds feline fun house” YouTube video has received almost 3000 likes and less than 50 thumbs down. Watch the viral video here:
