From sports to art to personal interests, obsessions commonly drive the way Americans think, act and relate to the world and the people around them. Outside of Fresno, Calif., one woman is the landlord to 1,000 feline tenants. What started as a few furry friends has rapidly grown into what is now a cat sanctuary for less fortunate felines. In Staten Island, N.Y., a wife and mother spends much of her time caring for her large family of zombie dolls.
