Just how "crazy" is Lynea? She currently has over 1,000 cats living in her house, along with some dogs. She had to move out of her big beautiful house, since the cats have taken ownership. Wanting a cat-free zone, she moved into a small mobile home on the same property. The cats have free roaming in the house and property, which is now called "Cat House On The Kings", California's largest no-cage, no-kill sanctuary for feral and abandoned cats. What about her mobile home? It houses another two dozen cats and dogs. So much for the cat-free zone. But Lynea doesn't mind at all.
What about the cost? The expenses to run the Cat House, which include food, litter, mainte-nance, payroll, vet and medical supplies, total over $1.5 million a year! She currently has 7 vet techs on staff and a cat hospital and ICU on the property. In the beginning, Lynea paid for everything, even selling her car and jewelry. Now she receives outside financial help. Without it, she would have to close. In the 24 years that she has lived there, Lynea has taken in and lived with over 28,000 cats! Wow, now that is crazy!
