1. Aughra

Aughra looks quite regal. While she may not be royal, she is definitely treated like a princess! She's fuzzy, cuddly and an absolute stunner.

2. Jesper

Jesper the cat enjoys napping, nibbling on food and playing hide and seek. His favourite napping spot though, is the laundry basket, because fresh clothes are suuuper comfy to sleep on, even though Dad might not love it!

4. Winnie

Winnie Calico Princess Cassar is a selfie pro! Adopted by a Maltese family in 2017, Winnie lives her days napping, eating, napping again, napping some more and playing a little with her sister Emma, who absolutely loves re-enacting the Circle of Life with her.

6. Ophelia

The resident Faculty of Arts cat at the University will just casually walk into your lecture (or jump in from the window) and will plonk herself down on the first available seat, or your lap if she deems it comfy.

7. Gigi

Gigi was the most popular cat on campus. She was loved and petted by everyone who passed through Students’ House. Gigi would walk in casually to the night time study area in the common room, jump on your table and sit on your notes. This was her sign to you that you needed a break. Unfortunately, Gigi past away a couple of years ago – a very sad day at Uni.
