Buzzfeed reveals an unknown story about Oracle founder Larry Ellison’s Hawaiian island. In 2012 Ellison bought about 97% of the island of Lanai for a reported $300 million. He has everything on it: Third of all of the island’s housing, the water company,  two Four Seasons hotels,  community swimming pool, restaurants, shops, galleries and … he also owns a cemetery.

Nearly everything, Except the airstrip, the harbor, the public school, some playing fields, and a few private homes.

Now it reviles that one thing he also unexpectedly owns: about 400 feral cats, residents of the

Lanai Animal Rescue Center, a popular tourist destination.

founder Kathy Carroll told to Buzzfeed that Many of the cats were rescued from the dump and other sites near the Four Seasons. About 30 cats have been adopted from the shelter since last summer. Andrew Dalton writes in his article:

“And there are cats, hundreds and hundreds of them — many in the sanctuary, many still roaming free around the island. They, like the deer and sheep that still attract hunters to Lana’i today, were originally brought here for someone’s amusement, before they were eventually abandoned and left to fend for themselves.”
