ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The University of New Mexico has moved two cats off campus to protect them from a construction site.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1U0eYCY ) that the cats became known as the unofficial mascots of the College of Fine Arts. They often lounged on top of cars and one student built a wooden shelter for them.

The campus community that watched after and fed the cats recently moved two of them to Mandy’s Farm, a nonprofit in the South Valley. They were concerned that the felines could get hurt living near a construction site.

UNM staffer Judi Mersereau says she a third cat, “Stevie,” evaded capture.

Mersereau, who has been feeding the cats for the past decade, says she will miss seeing them walking on campus with their tails intertwined.
