Woman Shares Her Home With Over 1,100 Cats
Holly Reyes 1/26/2016
Lynea Lattanzio hosts California’s largest no-cage, no kill home for feral and abandoned cats. Over 1,100 cats live with Lynea. What started out as a simple act of rescuing her own batch of 15 kittens back in the 1990's, has turned into a life-changing experience. She moved out of her own home to allow her cats to roam freely in their own space.
Not only has she sacrificed her home, but so much more. In order to care for all the cats she has graciously received into her cat sanctuary, she has moved into a mobile home. She sold many of her own belongings so that all the cats would have food to eat. After a generous donor gave Lynea her estate, Lynea was able to use that to expand her space for all the cats. They now roam throughout the land and house where they are looked after by caretakers.
Every single cat is fed faithfully by Lynea and her team of volunteers. Lynea also has a cat hospital for any cat who needs medical care. Enjoying her life dedicated to cats, Lynea looks after each of them like her family and has openly named herself "The crazy cat lady."
