- In 1966, Henriette van Weelde took pity on a stray cat and her kittens, and many strays later became known as "the cat lady." People would bring their unwanted cats to her until her home was filled. So, she decided to buy them a home of their own…in a houseboat. Run by volunteers, the Poezenboot is now probably the most famous cat sanctuary in the world and receives regular visitors--the curious as well as those looking for new feline friends of their own.
