This woman shares her 4,200 square foot home with 1,100 cats. 67 year-old Lynea Lattanzio now lives in a trailer on her six acre property and allows the cats to run freely through the five bedroom house. In 1992 Lynea Lattanzio’s father asked for her help in finding a new cat. She came home with 15 kittens. Woman acquired 96 by the end of that year and successfully rehomed all of them. Year later she became a veterinary technician to help keep the animals’ medical costs down and the number of cats continued to grow.
Today she runs Cat House On The Kings which is California’s largest no-cage, no kill sanctuary for feral and abandoned cats. In total Lynea lived with 28,000 cats in 24 years. The Cat House On The Kings is currently home to 800 adult cats and 300 kittens, which have all been taken in as either feral or abandoned animals.
