In memory of his 24-year-old son who died in an accident, he saved hundreds of cats and built an entire amusement park for them
No parent should live more years than his child.
Chris Arsenault is a retired locomotive driver living in Long Island, New York. In 2006, Chris's son, Eric, who was 24 years at the time, was killed in a motorcycle accident.
Since then, to honor the memory of his son, Chris have saved more than 300 cats.
It all started when Chris found a colony of 30 kittens who were all sick. He took each kitten, cared for then and helped them recover.
Eventually his home became a cat shelter and Arsenault realized that rescuing cats was his destiny. He soon opened the HappyCatSanctuary in memory of his son.
Arsenault said some of the cats came from bad people's homes, from gangs that wanted to use the cats as bait in dog fights, or from cat collectors homes.
The cats have an entire amusement park in the sanctuary, from towers and waterfalls to heated buildings.
Cats even have a 'lookout' where they can watch chickens do what chickens do.
All 300 cats live happily ever after and receive regular veterinary examinations and treatments, all neutered and spayed, and receive lots of warmth and love.
Many of them are candidates for adoption. The picture above provides a beautiful view of the entire amusement park the cats have.
You have seen all the facilities that cats have, and here they come to rest after playing all day in the yard.
