Feral Felines and Their Fleas

By SHARE

A pack of feral cats got the boot at Texas Tech this week after they sneaked into basement classrooms of a campus building and subsequently infested the area with fleas, reports the Daily Toreador. These ain't no lolcats, though. Instead of acting completely adorable, the feral felines used sand intended for engineering projects as their litter. The humans who ratted them out said their presence wasn't the problem: It was the parasites (fleas) they dragged in since their arrival over the winter. The cats have been conveniently relocated to another part of campus, and school officials have crossed their fingers hoping they don't return with their itchy, ankle-biting friends. –Christina Mueller
