Cal Poly Cats

Cal Poly Cat Program (CPCP) started as a 1992 senior project by Garret Quindimil to solve the problem of a rising cat population at Cal Poly. At that time, nearly 400 cats and kittens roamed campus. The majority had been abandoned by students and other residents.

Feral cats were trapped, then euthanized by the local Department of Animal Regulations. Although this decreased the cat population, it did not solve the problem.

CPCP modeled their solution on the "Test, Trap, Vaccinate, Medicate, Alter, and Release" (TTVMAR) technique, developed by the National Feral Cat Resource Center.
A second senior project resulted in an
adoption program where students
domesticated feral cats and found good homes for them.

Over the past nine years, other senior projects and campus volunteer staff upgraded the campus cat shelter and this web page.
Today we estimate the feral cat population on campus at 60. Most of these cats have gone through our program, so they are sterile and healthy. Our adoption program has placed more than 450 cats and kittens into caring homes.
