VIDEO: Amazing Cat Sanctuary In Panama!

Panama just seems to attract the nicest and most adventurous people, like Judy Odom!  She moved to Panama in 2003, bought 100 acres in the jungle and built an off-grid home all by herself.

Later, she sold that property so she could build a cat sanctuary and a new home on an amazing property overlooking a canyon. Los Mininos Cat Sanctuary is located in the tropical highlands on the slope of Volcan Baru near the town of Boquete, Panama. In this exotic location abandoned cats found on the streets, under bridges, or in the garbage are given a safe and loving home to live out their natural lives. Here they are given high quality food and veterinary care. All cats are sterilized and vaccinated. Those kitties who can be re-homed are available for adoption. However, those without a future on someone’s sofa find safe refuge at Los Mininos.
