Other famous “working cats”
Cats weren’t helpers only in this museum. There are two more historical monuments where they were “hard workers”. Canadian Parliamentary Cats were brought in 1924, and they were employed until 1955. In the United Kingdom, the most famous helpers are cats that were in the Chief Mouser position in the Cabinet Office. The first “cat-protector” was brought in 1924, and there are still cats that protect the United Kingdom’s Prime Minister from mice. The last cat protector is called Palmerston and he “works” for Theresa May. In the following picture you can see a cat named Larry who was on duty from 2011-2016.
