A pussy is also a specific type of scarf at Winchester College, usually awarded for excellence in a certain non-academic field.

Different colour patterns and combinations denote what the pussy was awarded for. Pussies are hand knitted from wool and have quite a loose pattern. They have decorative tassels on the ends. Due to the somewhat fragile construction woolen strands have a tendency to get caught and pulled out, neccessitating loving care.

Rather predictably the name of these gives rise to a number of amusing comments, such as:

“What are you doing with my pussy”, and

“How dare you touch my pussy”

Anyway reader, you shall have facts: Here I shall give descriptions of several of the pussies, and for what they are awarded.
