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! 😉
A woman in New Zealand has called the police after her cat left a bag of drugs on her doorstep, it’s been reported.
The worried owner, who has not been identified, apparently rang the authorities in Dunedin on the county’s South Island after she found the bag with 5g (0.2oz) of cannabis inside. ”You hear of cats bringing dead birds and rats home, but certainly in my career I’ve never seen anything like this before,” Sergeant Reece Munro tells the Otago Daily Times, adding the marijuana has a street value of about NZ$100 ($85, £51).
