This woman started a no-kill cat santuary -- Cat House on the Kings -- 16 years ago, four hours north of LA. She lives on 6 acres and the cats (and dogs) have free roam of the place. They can come in the house or stay outside, climb the trees or just hang around. It's one of the nicest things I've ever seen.
Since she started, she's saved 16,000 cats and dogs. Awesome. Honestly, I shed a little tear here and went right to the site to donate a little sumthin.
