UTEP (Google, OSM)

Description

Viewed 4 cats at this location. Did not let me get near and seemed apprehensive of me. There was a water source nearby and I viewed the white one eating something though I was unable to tell what it was. They grey one was the largest of the 4 seen.The orange one hiding in the bushes appeared to be the thinnest of the group.
I known that UTEP has a feral cat population estimated to be as large as 100 feral cats. They are captured, vaccinated, neutered/spayed and then released back into the area which they were captured if deemed healthy.

Description from Wikipedia

The domestic cat (Felis catus or Felis silvestris catus) is a small, usually furry, domesticated, and carnivorous mammal. It is often called the housecat when kept as an indoor pet, or simply the cat when there is no need to distinguish it from other felids and felines. Cats are often valued by humans for companionship and their ability to hunt vermin and household pests.
