Cat House on the Kings in Parlier, CA is a remarkable place. Twenty years ago, the owner, Lynea Lattanzio, decided to turn her entire property over to cats. The 12-acre no-cage, no-kill cat sanctuary is currently home to 700 permanent resident cats. The property is surrounded by a six foot tall fence, with a four foot inward facing overhang. The cats have free access to both indoor and outdoor spaces, including a 4,200 square foot ranch home. The permanent residents are cats that are considered unadoptable because they are either feral, too old or ill. She even has a separate FIV ward where they keep 10 - 12 FIV+ cats.

What Lynea is doing is amazing. Over the past 20 years she has saved the lives of over 20,000 cats who would otherwise be destined to live and die alone in cages.

We have a great opportunity right now to help Cat House on the Kings get much needed funding and it won't cost you a thing. ABC30 Action News has pledged 50 cents to KHOTK for each new like that their Facebook page receives before midnight tonight (12/31/2012 Pacific Time).

All you have to do is go to this page and click like, then CHOTK gets 50 cents. It's literally couldn't be easier.

So, please, like the facebook page and share this information with everyone you know.  So far, they've already raised almost $7000!

There is a video about Cat House on the Kings after the jump.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
