All Lynea Lattanzio wanted as a little girl was a cat, but her mother wouldn’t allow it. “I bet she’s sorry now,” says Lattanzio, who now lives with more than 700 cats as the founder and owner of the largest no-kill, no-cage cat sanctuary in the world.
Cat House on the King is a 503 (c) non-profit organization whose mission it is to place rescued cats and kittens into loving, permanent homes; to provide a safe, happy and healthy home for unwanted cats and kittens in a unique, no-cage facility; to prevent pet overpopulation through spaying and neutering; and to educate the public about responsible pet ownership.
And on Saturday, July 30, at 10pm, the sanctuary will be featured on the new National Geographic Special “The Lady with 700 Cats.” The special will focus on Lattanzio’s and her staff’s passionate work to provide a safe haven for cats and find permanent homes for them.
Watch Lynea Lattanzio talk about how it all started:
