Feral Cat Program
About the Feral Cat Program
The SMU Feral Cat Program works in conjunction with KittiCo Cat Rescue to help the homeless cats on the SMU campus. It’s important to distinguish between feral cats and strays; Strays are domesticated cats who have lost their way, but respond to humans; ferals are not domesticated and usually avoid getting too close to humans. Our volunteers consist of faculty, staff, students, emeritus, alumni, and community members who monitor, evaluate, and provide humane care for the campus feral cats. SMU joins universities across the country in using the veterinarian-approved TNR system for managing the cat population. About 60 feral cats populate 13 established colonies on the SMU campus and university property.
