The kitchen at Cathouse on the Kings. The kitchen is where all the action is. Twice a day, Lynea prepares a mixture of canned and dry food that bring the cats, tame and feral alike, running to the kitchen.



You may remember the story posted here about Sadie Malone, the San Jose cat lady (not a hoarder: she cared for a feral colony) who passed away, leaving three cats behind. I am thrilled to let you know that Sadie's friends successfully raised enough money to place the cats at the Cathouse on the Kings, a no-kill cat sanctuary near Fresno, CA, and the cats were delivered to their new home on January 8th. Here's more on Cathouse on the Kings --- it is truly an amazing place:

The San Jose Mercury News reported on the three cats' transition to their new digs:

... three of the cats she had brought to her home have never had it so good. Here on 12 green acres, they have 700 new feline friends, field after field of grass to roam and a whole orchard full of trees to climb. There's a five-bedroom house when they want to go inside or, for now, they have their own quarters in the newly named Sadie Malone Senior Village, a cabinlike building with ledges by the windows for naps in the sun and two cat doors so Miko, his brother Mario and their friend Trevor can go in and out as they please.

"It's sort of a heaven on earth for cats," said Ivor Durham of Los Altos, co-founder of Fat Cat Rescue, who drove Malone's boys to their new home Jan. 8.



We should all be so lucky.
