    What Youíre About To See Is Far From A Crazy Cat Lady. In Fact, Itís Absolutely Awesome.

    The Cat House on the Kings!
    June 2, 2014 Stories




    Have you ever heard of the term ďcat lady?Ē Usually this phrase has a negative connotation. Visualize a person who adopts way too many cats and ends up having too much focus on their kitties Ė thatís what a cat lady is typically supposed to be like. Someone with just a few cats can be called that term, but what about someone with over 700?
    Lynea Lattanzio has over hundreds of cats on her propertyÖ and a dozen dogs and a handful of goats. Sheís not crazy, though. She is running one of the largest lifetime adoption cat sanctuaries, The Cat House On The Kings.
    Over 700 kitties live at the sanctuary.

    Since its founding 22 years ago, The Cat House on the Kings has saved over 24,000 cats and 7,000 dogs.

    They have also spayed and neutered 40,000+.

    Christina Gandalfo


    This sanctuary for unwanted cats is being added to daily.

    Lynea didnít want to confine the cats to a small room, so she lets them roam.

    Christina Gandalfo


    All of these cats are available for adoption.

    But if new families donít want to take them home, they can spend their life at the Cat House.

    Not only is this a home for homeless catsÖ

    And an organization that is dedicated to help control the pet overpopulationÖ

    Christina Gandalfo


    But they also want to educate the public about responsible pet ownership.

    The Cat House is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, receives no government or public funding, and relies entirely on donations from the public to carry out its mission.

    Without the shelter, these cats would be roaming the streets.

    Christina Gandalfo


    They wouldnít know love.

    Christina Gandalfo


    Or regular meals.

    Christina Gandalfo


    They would have a rough life.

    Christina Gandalfo


    It takes a special person to be responsible for a petÖ

    Christina Gandalfo


    But for hundreds?

    Christina Gandalfo


    Thousands?

    Christina Gandalfo


    The Cat House is doing wonderful work.

    Christina Gandalfo


    Saving the lives of over 24,000 cats is remarkable.

    Even these kitties think so.

    Awww, kitties! You all stay right there on the sofa! I'll sit on the floor with you and hold the toys and treats

    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!


    "That's the power of kittens (and puppies too, of course): They can reduce us to quivering masses of Jell-O in about two seconds flat and make us like it. Good thing they don't have opposable thumbs or they'd surely have taken over the world by now." -- Paul Lukas

    What a wonderful place! The cats in all of the pictures look so healthy and well cared for - they have nothing to fear anymore. Best of all, each kitty knows what it means to be loved. May this safe haven continue its extraordinary work for years to come. My donation is on the way.
