Case 91 - Stray cats re-housed from University campus because of health and safety fears

Issue

Stray cats are being re-housed from a University campus because of health and safety fears.

Panel decision

Health and safety law does not prevent the university from having cats on the site. Given the number of people who keep cats on both domestic and work properties it is clear that any risks that they pose are capable of being managed quite sensibly.
