The Amazing Lady With 1000 Cats

The Cat House on the Kings is California’s largest no-cage, no-kill, lifetime cat sanctuary and adoption center! They place rescued cats and kittens into loving, permanent homes, they provide a safe, happy and healthy home for unwanted cats and kittens in an amazing unique, no-cage facility, they also spay and neuter and educate the public about responsible pet ownership.

The Cat House on the Kings was founded by an amazing lady, Lynea Lattanzio, 67, who picked up so many feline friends that she has completely turned over her 4,200-square-foot, five-bedroom home over to them, and instead she lives in a tiny trailer on her property. Lynea Lattanzio first began fostering cats in 1992. Since the founding of the sanctuary, the lady and her team have saved over 24,000 cats and 7,000 dogs. They also sprayed and neutered 40,000 animals over the years!

At the moment Lynea Lattanzio, along with her team of volunteers, cares daily for an estimated number of 800 adult cats and 300 kittens!

“I love cats because they’re independent, they’re beautiful and graceful.”

“Back then I was single, had no kids and bought this 4,200 square foot home and thought what am I thinking. I started taking in cats but it wasn’t my intention to have 1,000-plus cats — but it’s happened one step at a time.”

“I went from my five bedroom home with a swimming pool, bar and a view of the river to a 1,600 square foot mobile home with rusty metal.” “When I moved to the trailer, I swore it would be a cat free zone, but I currently have 20 kittens and four puppies in there.”, Lynea said.

There are 500 cats in this amazing sanctuary that are up for adoption! For more information about these cats please visit:
