University’s three-legged cat ‘relieves exam stress’
A three-legged cat adopted by a Cambridge University library is being used to help relieve students’ stress during the exam season.
Jasper, a five-year-old ginger tom, belongs to the deputy librarian at the Marshall Library of Economics.
He became a hit with students after his owner took him to work, and a recent “tea with Jasper” event attracted 140 moggy-lovers.
Similar events are planned as Jasper is now the library’s “official mascot”.
Jasper lost his left hind leg in a car accident and was abandoned by his owners. He was adopted by deputy librarian Simon Frost from a rescue centre.
