The Lodi Unified School District has posted information about the feral, or wild, cat population that can be found on campuses throughout the district. Mitch Slater, the district's maintenance and operations director, warns people not to feed wild cats.

The most recent incident took place at Victor School, where five classrooms and a storage room were inundated with fleas. District officials believe that feral cats underneath one of the classrooms attracted the fleas.

    The District has been dealing with the problem of feral cats for over 20 years. The last major flea infestation I'm aware of was at Oakwood School, and was due to a teacher, who taught in a portable classroom, leaving food each evening for the cats that inhabited the basement of the portable due to vandalism of the foundation screens designed to allow ventilation while keeping vermin out. Mitch Slater is correct.....if you feed them, they will come! If you don't, they'll go someplace else, along with the fleas they bring with them.
