The Cat House On The Kings, a wonderful cat sanctuary

Just today I received a reference from one of my Facebook fans, not only was it a wonderful article about a Cat Sanctuary in California, but as I am a cat lover it made it twice as delightful. My first thoughts, after looking at it, was to share it on Examiner so that all cat lovers could enjoy it as well.

The Cat House on the Kings is California's largest no-cage, no-kill, lifetime cat sanctuary and adoption center. It is located on 12-acres along the King's River in Parlier, Calif. with a mission to rescue cats and kittens into permanent homes. They also rescue puppies and have a separate dog run for them.

This facility is unique as they have no-cages the cats, can roam as they wish, within the compound that is enclosed with a 6-foot chain link fence. There is a main 4200-square ft house with a wood stove where the cats can gather on chilly nights, a Pasture Property fenced area, that is used for new arrivals, to monitor them before their transition into the Sanctuary.

Visit their Facebook page for photos and more information, you will love the delightful pictures, a few of which I have included in a slideshow. Follow the numbers on the satellite image to have a tour of the facilities which was founded by Lynea Lattanzio, then follow them for future posts. Keep in mind. Oct 16 is National Cat Day.

Parlier is situated in the beautiful San Joaquin Valley, 210 miles north of Los Angeles , where there is an array of recreational activities within a couple hours drive - Yosemite National Park, Friant Dam, and the beautiful California coastline.
