The maintenance people at the Ksu airport have taken it upon themselves to decide that the airport cat, Runway, is a “health hazard” and that he should be put to sleep (and of course I mean put to death) or at the very least taken by someone for adoption never to return. Completely ignoring the fact that Runway has co-existed with humans without being a danger for 10 years, how can they just decide to up and do whatever they want with a cat that belongs to everybody? I should also mention that these maintenance guys have been here for less than a year. More like months. It just pisses me off that they think they can just do whatever they want like this. I have to make a stand. I wrote a petition to put on the wall for people to sign to save Runway. I hope everyone else thinks like I do and that they don’t think I am too much of a loser for doing it. But in the end I don’t care. You have to fight for what you believe in, even the little stuff. And they have to listen to the students, right? That’s where the money comes from.
