Real Life Crazy Cat Lady!!

Real Life Crazy Cat Lady, Lynea Lattanzio shares her home with more than a THOUSAND felines!

Some might call her a Crazy Cat Lady, but I think she is an amazing, giving woman with incredible compassion.  Sixty-seven-year-old Lynea runs Cat House On The Kings, California’s largest no-cage, no kill sanctuary for feral and abandoned cats which she does without any financial help.  She even sold her car and her wedding ring to raise funds to help with caring for the animals.  Currently living in a trailer on a six acre property, Lynea allows the cats to run freely through her home.

It all started back in 1992 when Lynea started fostering and by the end of that year had acquired 96 cats – all of which she managed to re-home.  She even became a veterinary technician to help keep the medical costs down as she acquired more cats.

Feeding Time!

Lynea said: “I’m at the top of the list of eccentric cat ladies – I don’t think there has been anyone who has lived with 28,000 cats in 24 years. That’s probably a record”.

A typically day for Lynea and her volunteers starts at 4 am when they give medical attention to the critically ill cats in her care.  “We have an ICU and a vet that comes once a week to check our animals.  I love cats because they’re independent, they’re beautiful and graceful.”

As much as she loves her cats her aim is to find them all new and loving homes.

If you are interested in adopting or donating to Cat House on the Kings charity please visit their website and fill in the adoption form, currently there are 500 cats waiting for their forever homes.
