Cat House On The Kings

by Harvie Schreiber



For the last 28 years of her life, The Cat House on the Kings Founder/Director Lynea Lattanzio has been saving kittens by the thousands. This energetic, outspoken, and hardworking “animal rescue superhero” has spent countless nights hand-feeding and fighting for the most fragile and sick kittens, refusing to give up on them even when told by veterinarians that they wouldn’t pull through. Her tenacity and talents—not to mention her stubborn refusal to take “no” for an answer—has meant life for cat after cat, kitten after kitten.

On New Year’s Eve, we received a frantic call about a one-eyed calico kitten who needed help and a home. Because of the date she was rescued we named her “Eve.” After getting her fattened up and stabilized, on January 9 she was spayed and had surgery to remove her injured eye.

Whenever I ask people about fostering kittens for The Cat House on the Kings, one of the more common excuses I hear is the fear of making emotional attachments to those furry little fluffballs and then having to give them up. I used to think that way, too, and it kept me from fostering for years until one fateful day ten years ago.

The July heat has been brutal and unrelenting. Cat House cats are kept cool with fans and misters. The cats, of course, have the option to go into the air conditioned house, but many prefer to be outside.

The Cat House on the Kings needs your help! We’ve rescued almost 700 cats and kittens so far this year, many of whom required extra vet care. Kittens with broken legs, eye issues, dangerous infections, burns, and bites.

As the end of the year approaches, there is still time to make a tax-deductible donation to The Cat House on the Kings. This has been a crazy year (meaning expensive) for The Cat House. The storms, the floods, trees crashing down, and fences destroyed. We had numerous cats dumped on our doorstep, cats rescued from cars, kittens rescued from dumpsters, cats/kittens attacked by dogs, hit by cars, abandoned in alleys.

Whenever one plans an open air event, the biggest concern is always the weather. There was much concern and trepidation, as the weather people were forecasting rain for Saturday, November 4, and quite a bit of rain, too. There must have been a whole lot of praying and hoping going on because the weather was beyond perfect. No rain, not too hot and not too cold.
