Thesis Title: The Ecological Implications of Urban Domestic Cat (Felis catus) Predation on Birds in the City of Wichita, Kansas
I offer sincere apologies that I no longer have my thesis in electronic media form. My husband died just as I finished my degree, and in the years that followed, I struggled to function.
I have taken screenshots of the abbreviated paper written by me and my professor. You can read each page as a jpg. The document consists of 25 pages and can be accessed here. The complete thesis runs 179 pages.
Thank you for your interest in my research. It has been the most important professional accomplishment of my life, and I continue to stand behind my findings.
Please keep your cat indoors.
