A cat working for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs returns after a five-month absence from stress



Cat Palmerston, who was hired by the British Foreign Affairs and Federal Ministry (FCO) as the head of the mouse , has returned from his absence from work for the first time in five months. It has been reported that the cause of leave is overeating and stress caused by overfeeding and stroking staff.

Palmerston, the Foreign Office cat, returns to work after six months off for stress

The British prime minister's mansion has been around since 1500, with the tradition of “raising a cat to kill a rat”. In 1924, a public office called “ Chairman of the Prime Minister's Mansion ” was prepared, and in addition to extermination of mice, cats who undertake work such as guest support and sleep furniture inspection appeared. Since 2011, Larry has been serving as the head of the Prime Minister's residence. The following is a rally on duty.

In order to incorporate the tradition of the Prime Minister's official residence, on April 13, 2016, the British Foreign and Federal Ministry hired Palmerston as the first mouse captive in the province. Palmerston was two years old when he was appointed, and originally lived as a stray cat. It was selected as a place protected by an animal protection organization. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Federal Ministry hired Palmerston because Palmerston was “a bold and confident character”.

Palmerston also has an official Twitter account.

Palmerston also posted a tweet celebrating “ Japanese Cat Day ”, which was established after the word “Nyan Nyan Nyan”.

On July 8, 2019, Palmerston suddenly announced a summer vacation, saying, “I will take the annual leave I earned for three years of work.”

In fact, Palmerston was overweight and overweight, and as a result of excessive weight, excessive stress grooming occurred and all the hair on the forefoot had fallen off. Such Palmerston was said to have been treated at the secretary's house of Simon McDonald, the Secretary of the Secretary of Foreign Affairs and the Federal Ministry, as a summer vacation.

On December 2, 2019, Palmerston returned from his five-month leave. At the time of its return, we issued a “Parmerston Protocol” to protect Palmerston's own well-being.

The following four clauses are the “Palmerston Protocol”.

1: Do not give food to Palmerston, except for a dedicated caregiver.
2: Even if you want to interact with Palmerston, let Palmerston choose “whether to interact with humans”.
3: The secretary of McDonald's Secretary is called “Palmerston HQ” and should remain quiet while Palmerston is in HQ.
4: The cat has the property of being “irritated if the territory is too wide”, so watch over Palmerston so that you do n’t go outside the “Parmerston Zone” shown on the sticker.

The British telegraph who reported this case reported that he received a letter from Deputy Secretary McDonald that 'Palmerston is doing well after returning.' On December 5, Secretary-General McDonald released Palmerston's appearance on the floor of Palmerston HQ.
