Established colonies tend to repel new cats, which helps stabilize the population. Whenever a new cat is identified, it is humanely trapped.  We determine if it is a lost pet, free-roaming, or feral cat. Feral cats are transported to a veterinarian for neutering, vaccination, and ear tipping*, and then returned to campus. An exception applies to kittens found at a very young age or to extremely tame strays: we are sometimes able to find homes for these adoptable animals. Occasionally we have reunited lost pets with their families.


*The tipped or notched ear is the nationally-recognized indicator that a feral cat has been neutered and is part of a managed colony.
