Bisbee has been a staple in front of the Biological Sciences Building at the East Entrance for years. A constant joy for students as they walk by to pet him or play with him. But now he’s nowhere to be found.
A note left on Bisbee’s information sheet outside the building states that no one has him since July 10.
Bisbee is a part of the Aggie Feral Cat Alliance of Texas at Texas A&M University. According to its website, AFCAT is a volunteer organization comprised of students and faculty working closely with the University in order to provide care and long-term management of feral cats on campus.
Even though there are many colonies of feral cats near the Physical Plant and Kyle Field, Bisbee is more well known than other feral cats on campus. Though his information sheet reminds people that he is feral and can bite or scratch without warning, most students find he is quite docile and sweet.
Students have taken to social media outlets to respond to his disappearance.
The support has been outpouring on Bisbee’s Twitter.
“We have to find him #OperationFindBisbee,” Maddie Howard tweeted.
“Where’d my main man Bisbee go?” Lance Boyd tweeted.
They’re also hitting up his Facebook with comments:
“Hope we see you again,” Patrick Zeinart wrote.
“I heard you are lost,” Suzie Xiaoxi Ou wrote. “Come back home Bisbee.”
If you see Bisbee you are encouraged to call either 979-845-6131 or 979-665-8657.
