Ever taken a mascot with you to your exam for good luck? Maybe worn lucky underpants on match days?
The Tab speaks to the boys who have befriended a 3ft tall panther – and take him on their adventures around Fallowfield, and beyond.
I visited Jonny, Charlie, Liam, Callam and Ben to suss out this peculiar situation, to see what on earth all the fuss was about. At first, I pointed out the fact that this cat was a statue. Charlie and Jonny quickly jumped into inform me that he was definitely a real cat, he just remains incredibly still… all the time.
Despite questioning what was in front of my eyes, I deemed their instant defensiveness and loyalty to the cat somewhat endearing and believable.
His name is ‘Justin’. And boy, he’s not a statue – he is the undisputed coolest cat in town. My interview quickly turned into a journalistic opportunity to get to know the real Justin, on a night out in the infamous ‘Red Rum’. After shared emotions of the story about how the boys came across Justin, a tale in which the boys rescued him from a group of blasphemous and pitiful girls, Justin drank. A lot.
Below are a story in pictures of Justin’s night, and his adventures in and around university.
Feel free to follow the life of Justin on a day to day basis, detailed beneath.
