The master of a Cambridge University college that banned dogs from accommodation has been allowed to keep his canine companion after persuading officials it was “a very large cat”.
YoYo the bassett hound lives at Selwyn College with Roger Mosey.
Mr Mosey said cats were allowed but dogs were “technically” banned.
However, after a past master set a “dog-owning precedent” decades ago, the college “tongue-in-cheek agreed YoYo could stay as a large cat”, he said.
Great! Now students with dogs should follow the precedent, and ask the university to rule in their favour likewise, too! 😉
