The island of Lanai in Hawaii is well known as a beautiful tropical island which many have called a paradise. Cats are well known to be cute yet troublesome pets. But what do you get when you combine cats and Hawaii? Well you get the Lanai Cat Sanctuary, a kitty pur-adise dedicated to saving stray cats and also protecting the island's native bird population. Open 365 days a year, this cat sanctuary houses over 600 rescue cats and provides them with food, medical treatment, and a loving environment until they are adopted.

Take a look:

The tranquility of this cat sanctuary is really apparent just from the photos!
"Be honest... you had NO idea there's a huge cat sanctuary in Hawaii, right?! Most go to Hawaii for the beach, ahi poke, surfing, Kona coffee, escape an annoying spouse, etc... but if you get to the island of Lanai, you not only can see Hawaiian beauty... but also bask among over 600 cats, safe and happy on 3.5 acres of purradise.This is the love child of Kathy Carroll, who way back in the early 2000s, moved from Illinois to Hawaii and committed to doing something about the large homeless cat population..."
