Kittens Have Arrived on Campus

Six kittens have taken up residence in the Margaret L. Wendt Animal Behavior Laboratory in Science Hall and the campus community is invited to view training and enrichment sessions. In cooperation with the SPCA of Erie County, Miranda K. Workman’s ABEC 220: Animal Learning class welcomed the kittens for enrichment and training. The sessions will include teaching the kittens to walk into a carrier on their own and complete a small agility course. This makes them attractive adoption candidates and encourages positive relationships with humans that will help the kittens transition to their new families. Stress and anxiety attached to the act of catching and putting cats in a carrier is a major reason why cats are seen less often at the veterinarian. For these kittens there will be no stress or anxiety, as they will choose to enter the carrier by themselves! The kittens will be on campus until Friday, May 5.

This is the third year that the college has partnered with the SPCA. Each year, all of the kittens have been adopted.

Workman, clinical assistant professor of animal behavior (ABEC) and anthrozoology, invites faculty, staff and students to stop by during the following times:

Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays – 8:00 a.m. – 8:50 a.m.

Sunday – Saturday – 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

Interested in adopting a kitten? Email Workman at for adoption information.
