Campus Cats with Cat



Cats are a central part of life here at Kenyon. Sometimes it seems like there are hundreds of little yellow or green eyes watching you on your late-night market runs. Other times, they’re nowhere to be found (especially when it’s raining). Some of them are friendly. Some are skittish, some are demons, and some are a mixed bag. Whatever their personalities may be, I think it’s safe to say that this is campus is their home, too. So, we should strive to treat them with kindness and give them the space they deserve! Here’s a guide to the most famous cats on campus (and whether or not they’re approachable). Enjoy!

Do it today: Pet Blessing at the Church

A match made in heaven. (via Wikimedia Commons)

Today at 1:00 p.m. on the Church of the Holy Spirit lawn, Rev. Helen Svoboda-Barber will be available to bless all the pets of Gambier. It’s Saint Francis of Assisi day, and because Francis is the patron saint of animals, local residents will bring their furry friends by to receive a blessing for the coming year. Even if you don’t have a pet (which you shouldn’t unless it’s of the fish or small terrarium-dwelling types), you can drop by to have your stuffed animals blessed, or even just to watch all the other pets get blessed. Maybe some famous Kenyon Pets will be there!
