We all have our interests and hobbies. But when a hobby becomes a life mission, that’s when great things happen. That’s what happened with sixty-seven-year-old Lynea Lattanzio. In 1992, she went to a shelter to save few cats, and she returned with 15 kittens. Since then, 28.000 cats went through her house.
“I’m gonna say that I’m at the top of list of the eccentric crazy cat ladies!” jokes Lynea.
At first she lived in a main house with cats. But as more and more cats came, she decided to leave the main 5-bedroom house and move to mobile house in backyard.
In time this grew to be the biggest no-cage sanctuary for feral and abandoned cats in California. Find out more about The Cat House on the Kings and how you may help. There are many adorable cats for adoption.
As the number of cats grew, so did the costs of running the place. Today there are 50 staff members and twice as much volunteers that take care of more than 1000 cats. Lynea estimate that she spends 1.6 million dollars annually to cover costs of maintenance.
There are whole sections on the estate for cats with different needs. There’s a nursery, a part for cat infected with FIV, a cat HIV, because their immune system is compromised, and a whole house just for older cats. There’s also a clinic for ill cats. The vet comes once a week, but they take cats to the vet every day.
