The Cat House on the Kings

The Cat House on the Kings

“I bet she’s sorry now!” says Lynea Lattanzio, referring to her mother’s forbiddance of felines in the house. All she had wanted as a young girl was to have her own cat. Now she runs the largest cat sanctuary in California, home to more than 700 cats!

The Cat House on the Kings is California’s largest no-cage, no-kill cat sanctuary. A truly unique approach to rescue, all of the cats have access to roam, play, and act like cats instead of being kept in cages. The sanctuary is built on 12 acres of land in central California. The mission? To find permanent loving homes for homeless cats, and provide a happy and healthy home for those who don’t find a family. They also advocate for spay and neuter programs. Founded 19 years ago, The Cat House on the Kings has saved over 18,000 cats and 5,000 dogs and currently cares for more than 700 cats and kittens, a dozen or so dogs and a handful of goats.

The sanctuary is getting some special notice and will be featured on Nat Geo Wild this Saturday, July 30 at 10pm ET/PT. Narrated by actor Jane Lynch of Glee fame, the program chronicles the story of Lynea Lattanzio, as she strives to provide the best life for the cats she rescues. From finding boxes of abandoned kittens, to having to do CPR, and everything in between, life at The Cat House on the Kings is never boring for Lynea.
