Help me create the ultimate CatCam! I want a way to watch what our cats are doing at home from the internet.

Hi there, I'm trying to figure out how to create my gift idea for my husband, which is a CatCam - I want to set up a little camera, or maybe even two depending on the cost, that would be pointed at spots where the cats usually hang out in our house. If my husband wanted to check on them and see what they were doing he could somehow go to a website and see it. I have some basic technology and webpage design capabilities. What kind of cameras do I want, how do I set them up, and how do I create the web access? I've been trying to search this information and am not coming up with any helpful how to guides online. I've looked at this question about the Cat Cam
but I do not want a camera for my cat's collar - they'd just slip the collar. I want to aim the camera at where the cats hang out - I know they sleep most of the day, and I want to be able to turn the camera on remotely to watch them.
