The Caltech Animal Team and its sister organization, the Collegiate Animal Team, will participate in Caltech’s first Pet Education Fair. The Fair will be from 11:30 – 1:30 in the San Pasqual Mall (area north of Red Door Café). The aim of the fair is to provide the community with information about Housing policies, CAT, local vets, local resources, etc., regarding cats and pets that can live in a 20 gallon aquarium.
We are raffling cat toys and waivers for the cat fee for Housing, as well as providing light refreshments. Please stop by and say hi!
In case of rain, we’ll be relocating into Winnett.
There have been a large number of kittens born recently, and our various contacts who normally care for and foster kittens have their hands completely full. We urgently need to find people who are experienced and able to foster recently-born kittens until someone can adopt them permanently. We will be honest and tell you it is time-consuming and difficult work, but rewarding at the same time. If you have experience with doing this and live off-campus, would you please contact firstname.lastname@example.org?
In addition, a number of kittens that have been in foster homes for some time are now ready for adoption by caring individuals living in off-campus housing. Although they were born to feral cats, the kittens have been domesticated. Adopting any pet, cat or otherwise, is a commitment for the life of the pet, but if you are ready and have been considering adopting a cat, please let us know. We will put you in touch with the people who have been acting as fosters for these young cats.
Following discussions with Caltech’s legal counsels, CAT is separating hands-on activities into a separate nonprofit 501c3 organization. The Caltech Club will remain on this website, but renamed to the Caltech Animal Team. We have updated the website appropriately.
The minutes from the CAT face-to-face meeting of 21 March 2006 are available in plain text format. (We neglected to upload them at the time—sorry!)
