Dana's Idea: Monster Hunter Village
I haven't played any of the Monster Hunter games but I have seen some gameplay. I seriously love the concept of having "Felyne Comrades". You can play as a cat or have them fight alongside you. I wish Felyne and the other DLC characters would be introduced in the upcoming New Leaf update. He is just so cute, look at that little squinty face =^.^=
I looked up a few reference photos to help me design a house for him. I found these images from what looks like a short animated series.
I was inspired to create a small little village house with the basics. There is a bonfire and minimal kitchen area to cook all the meat that is retrieved from exploring. Medicine is near the bed so the player can heal and rest up.
