Cambridge University Selwyn master keeps 'banned' dog as 'ver y large cat'

剑桥大学塞尔温学院院长坚持称“被禁”的狗为“非常大的猫”


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".

剑桥大学塞尔温学院一向禁止犬类进入宿舍区的规定,而其院长要求自己的爱犬入内,他劝说学校员工理由是它只是只“非常大的猫”。


YoYo the bassett hound lives at Selwyn College with Roger Mosey.

悠悠是只巴吉度猎犬,和Roger Mosey一起住在塞尔温学院。


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.

Mosey先生说,猫可以入内,但狗是严格禁止的。然而鉴于数十年前,前任院长有养狗的先例,学院便半开玩笑地同意悠悠可以是只大猫,他如是说。

 

Mr Mosey, former editorial director of the BBC, became master of Selwyn College in October.After settling in he asked permission from the college council to have a dog, despite the rules,'Love your cat'

Mosey先生是英国广播电台前编辑主任,于十月份担任塞尔文学院院长。尽管学院有规定“要爱你的猫“,他仍于入住后要求学院理事会允许其养狗。


"Many former masters have kept cats but the greatest master, Professor Owen Chadwick, did keep dogs during the 1950s, 60s and 70s," he said.

许多前任院长都养猫,但其中最伟大的那位,Owen Chadwick教授在上世纪50年代、60年代、70年代都在养狗。他如是说。


Permission was granted by the council, and duly noted in the minutes: "i. College Animal - Noting precedent under the mastership of Professor Chadwick, Council approved the Master's request to adopt a Very Large Cat in the Master's Lodge."

理事会同意了这一请求,但立即正式指出:“鉴于Chadwick院长在任期间有养狗先例,理事会特此批准院长在院长宿舍养一只很大的猫。“


For a while, Mr Mosey said, when he left the lodge with YoYo, he was greeted with calls of "hey, I love your big cat".

有一段时间,Mosey先生说,当他和悠悠一起出门时,总会有人给他打招呼说:“嘿,我喜欢你的大猫。”


YoYo, a rescue dog, has now featured in publicity material for a veterinary course and other college material.

作为一条救援犬,悠悠如今已成为兽医学及其他学院宣传资料上的一大亮点。


"Students call her 'the college dog' and I very much want her to become part of life at Selwyn," Mr Mosey said.

“学生们叫它‘学院犬’,我十分希望它能成为塞尔文学院生活的一部分。”Mosey先生说。
