Many students have certainly noticed that there are many cats wandering around campus. Some are outdoor cats owned by Gambier residents, but others are strays who make their way from dorm to dorm looking for a laptop to sleep on top of. One of these strays is a tomcat who has been known to hang around the back porch of Peirce. Mr. Cuddles, as I have chosen to call him (he would not tell me his real name), is incredibly friendly with humans, and likes nothing more than to be scratched behind his ears while trying to steal others’ french fries. I managed to get an interview with Mr. Cuddles to see what life is like for a Kenyon Kat.
*This interview has been edited for the sake of brevity, and also because Mr. Cuddles spent a half hour sleeping in the interviewer’s lap.
