The story goes that the Biology Department used to dissect the cats that lived on campus. But, the current university president is a cat lover and put an end to this practice. Now, all the cats are neutered and spade and are given shots as well. They are everywhere. It's hard to walk anywhere on campus without seeing at least one, if not two or three.
A woman goes around somewhere around 5:00 am and feeds them. I wouldn't mind getting up early and meeting her. I have also heard that cat support costs the university $150,000 a year. I want to find out if there is a way to donate to this cause. You might feel that this is frivolous when there are so many humans who are in need of assistance such as the people of Nahr el Bared for instance. You are correct. But for me, seeing the cats makes me happy. Here is a safe place for them in a world that is often hostile to them. It gives me hope. What other livable refuges can we create for each other?
Oh, who does this darling below look like?
And my laundry detergent. I'm a bit obssessed.
