We hope this site helps you connect with these cats in some way, and that you’ll realize how amazing it is to have these animals in our midst. Go to south Texas and visit the home of the ocelot, and maybe you’ll be lucky enough to see one. Visit Big Bend where mountain lions thrive in the seemingly harsh conditions. Maybe you’ll see the ubiquitous bobcat, or at least learn that one lives nearby. And one day the jaguarundi will return.
Who We Are
Texas Native Cats, a Texas nonprofit corporation, is an organization based in Dallas that consists of volunteers, master naturalists, and others interested in acquainting Texans with our cat species. Established by Monica Morrison, the group makes presentations in the DFW area, with plans to expand to Austin, San Antonio, Houston, and other locations in the near future. The goal is to expand educational outreach to the major metropolitan areas of the state and, ultimately, to improve the lives of these beautiful but threatened Texas felines.
