Mews and Nips: Lanai Cat Sanctuary is a Cat Lover’s Paradise


The Lanai Cat Sanctuary, located on the small Hawaiian island of Lanai, is home to more than 500 cats. The sanctuary covers about 25,000 square foot where cats can roam around freely. Visitors from around the world can hang out with the cats as long as they want. The sanctuary’s website states that “no appointment is required. Bring a picnic and be ready to play and stay the day.” For more on the sanctuary and some wonderful photos, visit Top13.

If you missed any of the stories featured on the Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: on Sunday, we encouraged you to research the charities you support to make sure they don’t support testing on animals, on Monday, we shared what every cat parent should know before euthanasia, on Tuesday, we featured an innovative partnership between Urban Outfitters and Best Friends that found homes for 95 cats in one day, on Wednesday, we celebrated Black Cat Appreciation Day, and on Friday, we reviewed Tom Cox’s newest book, Close Encounters of the Furred Kind.  And don’t forget to enter our giveaway for an adorable zipper pull from 4MyMeow!

The kitty in today’s video has found a unique way to chill out on a Caturday! (If you’re reading this in your email, you may need to click through on the post title to view the video.)

Have a great weekend!

    you are VERY special people to be able to have the means to help these wonderful felines and birds continue their life.
    it’s also awesome hearing you all have found your calling and have chosen to dedicate your hands , time, love, caring etc. to them I’m sure you feel the gratitude from them in giving them this second chance at life.
    it’s amazing!!!
    this would be my dream

    Hi Ingrid…I started mixing 1/4 tsp. of Dr. Goodpet Feline Digestive Enzymes into my cats’ wet food every morning. I started about a month go and I’m so happy to report that all three cats have 100% normal poop now :-). And…the odor is less, too! I’ve also noticed they have more energy. Their overall health seems to have improved. Thank you for this recommendation.

    If I ever make it back to Hawaii, I would love to take a day trip to Lanai and visit this cat sanctuary.

      It looks like their website is undergoing some maintenance, Ann. Please check back a little later.
