Crazy Cat Lady Gave Up Her House And Property To 28,000 Cats

Meet Lynea Lattanzio, the self-proclaimed craziest of cat ladies.

She lives in a trailer on her six acre property because about 1,100 cats have taken over her 4,200 square foot home. But, she's not complaining. In fact, she's purrrfectly content to live in a cozy home, if it means better care for several hundred homeless cats.

The sixty-seven-year-old woman runs Cat House On The Kings, California's largest no-cage, no kill sanctuary for feral and abandoned cats.  

According to Lynea, it all started with a box of 15 abandoned kittens. By the end of her first year, she had rescued and re-homed 90 abandoned cats.

In 1993, she came out of retirement and completed studies to become a surgical veterinary technician with a local veterinarian.

Now, fully dedicated to rescuing and caring for cats, she sold her 1973 Mercedes 450 SL, her two-karat diamond wedding ring and got zoning permission for her property to hire volunteers and qualify for financial support.

Hear the story in her own words below:


There are nearly 500 cats and kittens available for adoption right now. Visit their website here for more information.
