Lynea Lattanazio of Parlier, California loves cats so much that she started fostering needy animals in 1992. By the end of the year, not only had she given care and shelter to 96 cats, she was also able to find a forever home for each and every one of them — but the number of cats she took in continued to grow. Lynea was so dedicated to her cause that she became licensed as a vet tech to cut down on veterinary costs so that she could afford to take care of more abandoned cats and strays. Today, she’s changing the lives of 800 cats and 300 kittens; Lynea has donated her 4,200 square foot home to the animals she cares for by transforming it into California’s largest no-kill, no-cage sanctuary for cats and kittens.
Lynea Lattanazio’s dedication to cats and kittens began in 1992 when she was able to successfully re-home 96 cats and kittens.
When she couldn’t find it in her heart to turn anyone away, she earned her license as a vet tech to better take care of the cats in her care.
Today, she owns and operates California’s largest no-cage no-kill cat sanctuary, Cat House on the Kings. Lynea gave up her own 4,200 square foot home so that the sanctuary cats had a place to live. She now resides in a trailer on her property.
Over 24 years, she and her sanctuary volunteers have given care to more than 28,000 cats.
Days start early at Cat House on the Kings — Lynea and volunteers begin daily feeding and medical treatments at 4 AM.
“Thank you, Lynea!”
It’s amazing how Lynea has taken her love for cats and transformed it into a means of saving countless feline lives. She truly is the world’s greatest cat lady! To learn more about Cat House on the Kings and to see who they have up for adoption, visit their official website.
