Mews and Nips: Gladstone the Cat is British Treasury’s Official Mousecatcher


Not to be outdone by Larry, the Downing Street Cat and Palmerson, the official mouse at Britain’s Foreign Office, the UK’s Treasury introduced its newest employee last week: 18-month-old Gladstone is taking over duties as chief mouser and PR purrson at the department. You can read more about Gladstone on The Guardian. I’d like to see this trend of hiring feline staffers spread  to government offices around the world – purrhaps as a first step to cats ruling the planet?

If you missed any of the stories featured on the Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: on Sunday, we shared the seven habits of highly successful cat parents, on Monday, we told you how you and your cat can be on the new season of My Cat From Hell with Jackson Galaxy, on Tuesday, we brought you information on how to keep your cat’s urinary tract healthy, on Wednesday, we introduced you to some wonderful cat accessories from Show Me a Little Sign, on Thursday, we rounded up some adorable cat-themed school supplies for you, and on Friday, we reviewed Knits for Kitties.

Today’s adorable video from Cole and Marmalade features “Cat Logic” in all its glorious manifestations. I’m sure you’ll recognize your own cats in this compilation.

    From the UK – Yes indeed, felines seem to be taking over in Whitehall. Now “Rex” has joined them,the Foreign Office (I think!) – and as he’s a dog and apparently does not like cats in any shape or form there is going to be a lot of fur flying around! Much more interesting than boring old politics!

    I believe all businesses should have cat’s in them.
