Yahoo reports on Lynea Lattanzi, who founded the amazing Northern California cat sanctuary, Cat House on the Kings. Adopt a cat!
Lynea Lattanzio has no problem calling herself a crazy cat lady. With more than 1,000 cats living with her, there’s really no denying it.
“I’m gonna say that I’m at the top of the list of the eccentric, crazy cat ladies,” Lattanzio says.
She says she has taken in and lived with, at some point, 28,000 cats total. At the moment, she has a mere 800 adult cats and 300 kittens.
Lattanzio runs – and lives at – the Cat House on the Kings, California’s largest cage-free, no-kill sanctuary for abandoned and feral cats: 12 fenced-in acres near Fresno on the Kings River.
When she was first starting out, she lived in the big main house. But with 60 cats in her bedroom, not to mention dogs, she decided that was too much; “there wasn’t room for me anymore.” The sheer volume of cat forced Lattanzio into a mobile home on the property.
