Kittens Return to Campus!

Kittens are back on campus!

Maura Tyrrell, PhD, in cooperation with the SPCA of Erie County, has welcomed five kittens to the Margaret L. Wendt Animal Behavior Lab in Science Hall.  Kittens on Campus is part of ABEC 220: Animal Learning lab class instructed by Dr. Tyrrell, experiential learning coordinator for Animal Behavior, Ecology and Conservation (ABEC).

The campus community is invited to view the sessions during the times listed below.

The sessions include teaching the kittens to walk into a carrier on their own and completing a small agility course, which makes them attractive adoption candidates and encourages positive relationships with humans that will help kittens transition to their new families. Stress and anxiety attached to catching and putting cats in a carrier are major reasons why cats are seen less often by veterinarians. 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 May 5, and will then be available for adoption.  If you are interested in adopting a kitten, please contact Dr. Tyrrell at
