I Share My Home With 1000 Cats | BEASTLY

Lynea: We have approximately 700 adult cats, and 350 kittens here. Yeah, that’s a lot of cat. Our monthly expenses are about $100,000. I sold my Mercedes and I sold my Cadillac, everything I could sell in order to keep it going. Deanna: They get like right under your feet, and like you know, we’re almost like tripping, or we’ve had to come to move out of the way. Because there’s so many cats. Herlinda: There’s so much work, so we have to get this first done, and then we can go and start working on the rest of the cleaning, and taking care of the cats. So we could be open to the public at one o’clock. Those two go in to the garage. Lynea: The Cat House on the Kings is probably one of the world’s largest sanctuaries, which is a no-cage no-kill habitat, for domestic felines, and probably the largest, you know, possibly in the world. We have approximately 700 adults, and 350 kittens here, plus another 50 or so in foster care. Yeah, that’s a lot of cats. In the last 27 years, we have rescued, about 38,000 cats. Lynea: Come on, babies. The kittens come from, all over. The kittens are found in the middle of the road. They’re found with their eyes gone, you know from infection. We quarantine new arrivals for at least 30 days to make sure that they’re healthy and have adjusted. Lynea: Look up there, can you see that? way up there. You see the cat? That cat lives up there every day all day. It only comes down, when the humans leave. I’d say at least 50% of the kittens, are sick when they come. If they are sick with the herpes virus, which these guys have, then it is for life. They’re never going to get over it, they’re always going to have a running nose and running eyes. And they’re very difficult to adopt, because nobody wants a kitten or cat sneezes, and leaves mucus all over your house. So these guys are always going to have it, they’re never going to get over it. We can keep them healthy, but we have to treat them regularly. Martin: In here, it’s like mostly chronic cats, which are like they’re sick and they need to be medicated. I think some of them are like contagious, which is why they stay in there and they can’t like interact with other cats. And then their food has to be separated also, so the other cats don’t get sick. Lynea: When I was a child, my mom wouldn’t let me have a cat. I think that’s what began my obsession. Our monthly expenses are about $100,000. For the first seven years, I was out of my own pocket. Not only did I spend my retirement, but I sold my Mercedes, and I sold my Cadillac, and I sold my diamond ring, and I sold everything I could sell, in order to keep it going. After seven years, we became a nonprofit, and now we receive donations from all over. Where we live, the city of Fresno is the highest kill rate in the United States. The county shelters in all the cities around in Fresno County, don’t take cats. So there’s, there’s got to be close to 200,000 on the streets. Killing all the unwanted animals, is it makes us a third world country. It boggles my mind, that here in Fresno we choose to kill them, rather than go the no-kill route. And if I stop now then I would feel that my job wasn’t complete. And I don’t think it’ll be complete until we become a no kill nation. No-kill at least a no kill area here. This is my life, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, 27 years. Come on baby kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty. This is the leukemia ward. It has a four foot, kind of like a moat, all the way around it. And that is to make sure that there is no interaction at all between these cats and those cats. Because leukemia can be passed by as little as a sneeze, or sharing a food dish or something. So we have to protect all the other cats from them. Frank: So now we’ll be feeding the wildcats. So this is boneless raw chicken, breast. And this is a kind of hamburger meat, with some boneless wings there. bone wings and some cat food there. She’s on a special diet because they like to eat raw stuff. So this, this is where they will be at over here. So they’re usually hiding. They’re mostly nocturnal cats come out at night mostly. That’s Mandy right there by the rocks, she kind of blends in, with the rocks here. That’s Mandy. Their food here. Put these on the ground. We take the old plates so they can wash them We open the door and then… They’ll come in once we’re out of here, come in and … and eat. Lynea: Oh here’s Floyd. This is one of my cats. Come here Floyd. Lynea: Come here About seven years ago, I still lived at the big house. It had a 12 foot walk in closet, a six foot sunken tub, a built in fireplace, a back deck to the river. And it ended up with so many animals, that I … I couldn’t… there was no room for me. So I moved, and I thought I’ll just make this my cat free zone, which lasted about six months. Here’s my other cat. Daphne. So that’s my second cat. And it’s a Bobtail. My dad wanted me to get a minx when I started this, and this is my token minx right there. Nikki: Okay, okay. Nikki:You’re so good. Nikki: You know you tend to get favourites, like one of mine besides her is I call him skinny cat. He’s my little guy right there. Like say if he got adopted, I’d be a little sad but it is, it is a good thing for them because
you know they’re going to a good home, as well as you know, they’re going to be treated right. Lynea: This is …
my favourite spot here. And we call it the benches. kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty. This is to me, cat paradise. We often call our facility, cat heaven and dog disneyland. Because it’s got the best, for everything. The cats are in heaven, and the dogs get to play like they’re kids. Anybody can stay down here. We don’t tell the cats where to live. You’ve got the trees, you’ve got the water, I mean, there’s fish, there’s birds, there’s rodents there, and there’s very few people. So, if you’re an antisocial cat, this would be perfect. If I were a cat, I would think that this would be perfect.

    Just shoot the bastards and save the animals they eat to make the food.

  18. Aaron Silva says:

    Nice, don't get me wrong, it's heartwarming and awesome to care so much and accomplish so much…but how many humans could she have helped with her savings? Hundreds of thousands of houses could have been built for hundreds of thousands of humans living in poorer parts of India and Bangladesh with the hundreds of thousands of dollars she put up for these cats.
