There’s a new bunch of cuties roaming around DLSU. You’ll find them all over campus. It’s almost impossible to miss them! Who are we talking about? No other than the real OGs of our campus halls: the Cats of DLSU!
“They are the soft spot of almost all students on campus!”
If you’ve ever arrived on campus early, this scenario should look pretty familiar. We aren’t sure if it’s super cute or super creepy, but they’re all grouped together at the corner of Velasco and Miguel walk.
“No eyebrows? Still #onfleek”
“Buti pa sila, pwede matulog kahit saan sa school.”
Lasallians have taken the cats around campus so seriously that a good number of them have names and even collars! For example, the fattest and the famous Archer whom you will see walking along the gate and grounds of Henry Sy Library:
“How dare they touch me.”
“We ’bout to drop the latest fire album soon.”
“Don’t diss the king, Archer.”
All in all, it is an amazing gesture from the administration and the students to give these cats a home. Not only are they a source of simple joys for us in La Salle, but it is also a great step for people to see that giving some love to stray animals is not hard at all!
