These cats look cute, but they’re wild and feral cats are something of an issue on the island. Besides the usual problems, their feces can carry Toxoplasma gondii, a microscopic protozoan parasite, which can be washed into the water in runoff. This parasite is potentially fatal to monk seals with several deaths attributed to it.
