‘Purr’fect retirement for Foreign Office feline Palmerston

LONDON (UK) – Palmerston, the cat who has lived at the Foreign Office for four and a half years, will retire soon. With this, his duties, which included catching mice, will come to an end.

With more than 100,000 followers on his Twitter feed, it said that he wanted to spend more time relaxing away.

He wrote to the Foreign Office’s most senior civil servant, Simon McDonald, signing off with two paw prints. “I have enjoyed climbing trees and patrolling the fields around my new home in the countryside.”

“I will miss hearing the footsteps of an Ambassador and sprinting to my hideout to see who it is.”
