Has 13 cats at home

There are 300 cats on campus. This is the fourth time somebody brought it to me.

He has got a collar with at tag on him saying my home is UTA.

Anyway we do a lot of rescuing on campus. My husband’s second job, he works at a vet clinic. The vet clinic he works for has a kitten that somebody just brought in and dumped, he has three of them home. We have plenty of them at home. He has got three from the clinic and one from trapped three weeks ago.

Anyway we have 13 at home.

I never had cats before. In India we have three dogs at home, in India its still not popular to have cats at home.

Right, yeah cats are not pet to you guys, and there is usually a lots of dogs in the streets and not lots of cats right.

Here in this campus you wouldn’t know there are lots of cats. At nights you see a lot. A bunch of them near the engineering building since they started construction over there, now there are at the life science building. The oldest one there on campus he has probably been there for 12 years. He is a grown old man, he has been here for a long time. There are around and you hardly see them.

I feed a group at the Lutheran centre and you see my cats usually comes out and I have to be really careful when I walk across the street, if they see me they run into the street. I have to approach, make sure I make no noise because when they see me, they come running and I don’t want them to run across uta blvd.

Yeah its not safe (smile)

Its not a good thing (laughing)

Yeah. We have a small fish tank at home, because in uta housing we are not allowed to have pets.

No pets.

So we have a small fish tank with the gold fishes and the cuppies. Its good to have pets at home.
