            The campus of Chung-Ang University is always crowded with students. Among these people, we can find small, precious creatures. They are the cats of Chung-Ang University. Students call these cats living in the campus, ‘Chung-nyangs’, and give much love towards them in many ways. Some people might just regard them as wandering street cats, but they are also family members of CAU, so that they even have a group which offers medical care when needed. Let us find out more about Chung-nyangs, our cute family members. 

Let Us Introduce Ourselves
Sang-di: I am 2 years old (or maybe 3) and I do not go far away even when a human approaches me. However, I do not like them taking pictures of me. I love liquid snack humans give to me, but please keep in mind that I easily get surprised when you touch me without any notice. Let’s become closer before you touch me.
Big-mom: I am the oldest among the cats living in front of Building 302 (graduate school building). You may notice this just by taking a look at my face. I easily take precautions when approached by humans so I recommend you not to come closer to me. Let’s just greet each other by our eyes!
Natbam-junior: I have fish-like pattern socks on my single front foot. I look very round and I easily hit people, so be careful not to touch me. I only like greeting humans with eyes, and I love snacks from a can.
Bang-ul: I am turning 1 soon, and many people say that I look like Sang-di. I easily show my charm to those I am close with, but not to every human. Please check Facebook or Instagram of ‘Nyang chim ban’ if you want to differentiate me from Sang-di.
Nyang Chim Ban, Caring for These Chung-nyangs
What is Nyang Chim Ban?
‘Nyang Chim Ban’ is a group of students who love cats and wish all the Chung-nyangs and students and professors of CAU to get along well with one another. The name ‘Nyang chim ban’ is the compound word of ‘Nyang’ which means cat, and ‘Chim ban’ from the word Na chim ban (Compass in Korean). The name was made to navigate ways for cats to live well together with humans and to protect the rights of animals. This club does food distribution and rescuing activity, as well as TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) for Chung-nyangs. This is all run by sponsorship of people and dues.
What activities does Nyang Chim Ban Do?
           The principal activity is food distribution. There are some spots all around the campus where they distribute foods for Chung-nyangs. Members of the club take turns in doing it. Another activity done by Nyang chim ban is TNR, which is making the cats neutered. Though trapping them is difficult, every cat goes through this since the surgery is essential. Other things the group does are playing with the cats, and sometimes doing volunteering services.
Students’ Love Towards Chung-nyangs
           The love of many students in CAU is extraordinary. The most frequently used community site ‘Everytime’ has photos of cats constantly uploaded who are living on the campus of CAU. Eventually, the category ‘CAU Cats’ was created. Moreover, there is a Twitter account which only uploads current photos of Chung-nyangs, and it has lots of followers too. In front of the feeding facilities on the campus, there are always lots of students around to see those cats. There are also students who donate money or even foods and snacks to cats through the club ‘Nyang chim ban’. Though not many people donate, these hands help Chung-nyangs a lot. Like this, Chung-nyang is receiving much attention from students of CAU these days. 
 
           Now that cities are being developed and animals are losing habitats, people are solely responsible for protecting them. The campus of CAU is also home to cute Chung-nyangs, as well as a place where students study. If you find a cat in the grass next to some gates and buildings, why not call their names with warm attention?
