Most people have probably heard of therapy dogs, and some have even been introduced to certain university campuses to help students deal with stress and unwind a little. But the University of Augsburg in southern Germany has a different kind of therapy animal.
A ginger cat known simply as the “Campus Cat” is bringing comfort to students all across the campus with no training. He simply cuddles with them and helps them to relax. He has a good home and is well cared for, but he just enjoys going to the university.

While he does an awful lot of sleeping, Campus Cat makes sure to visit students from every faculty as he makes his rounds. He is certainly appreciated by many of the students who claim he has helped them relax before exams, tests, and essays. He’s a good kitty cat and more universities need a cat like him around!
