Our Cats

This listing of cats is current as of August 2018. However, any and all cats on campus–whether known or new arrivals–are considered to be part of our program. Please contact the Cat Alliance for any issues related to cats on campus.

ART Cat — Beau is the official, and very vocal, greeter of M lot. Whether you're carrying a food bucket or not, you'll get a shout-out from Beau.

MARRS-McLEAN Cats —Sisters Fiona and Flora make their home on the east side of the science building. They have a possum friend named Petunia who lives nearby and shares lunch with the sisters.

COATES Cat — Tux has a very unique "meow." Bowie has one blue and one green eye and is named after David Bowie. Fern, a long-haired gray tabby, is shy so we have no photo of her (yet). 

Photo of Felix

MURCHISON Cat — Felix was born near the tennis courts and hand-raised by Cat Alliance members. The king of Cardiac Hill, he enjoys having his "soul patch" rubbed by those traveling up the Hill.

Photo of Dit and Trinity

BEZE Cats — Former Bell Center cat Dit is now the feline in charge at Beze. Trinity is shy, but loves to be petted.

ISABEL Cats — Sonny got tired of living alone at Storch so he moved to nearby Isabel station to hang out with Jupiter, a beautiful gray-and-white tabby, and Riker, the second-in-command (re: Star Trek) orange cat at this station.

POLICE Cats — Piper and Phoebe are named after the sisters in the Charmed television series from the 1990s. They live with Leo, a black cat who was a former Bell Center resident. New cat Blondie still needs to be trapped and neutered.

PRASSEL GARAGE Cat — Baby has her own "indoor" station in Prassel Garage. She is very friendly once she gets to know you and likes to be called to eat with her special dinner bell.

MILLER Cats — Longtime campus residents Pistol and Teenager live in the freshman quad and serve as a welcoming committee for new students on campus. Jett is quite friendly and enjoys living near students. This is Tux's original home and he returns here to dine on occasion.

NORTH Cat — Sabrina likes sitting on laps when she's not out mousing.
