Cats began residing in government offices centuries ago. Instead of rat poison, London’s Foreign Office found the most adorable rodent terminator imaginable: Palmerston. Although Palmerston is named for a prime minister who served twice in the 1800s, he has charisma worthy of Winston Churchill. He’s also left-pawed like Churchill.

Churchill loved and admired his cats but noted that pigs treat men as equals: “Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. But pigs treat us as equals.” Winston Churchill
Palmerston vanquishes several rodents per year and reportedly makes the resident rodent terminator of 10 Downing Street, Larry, look like a slacker. Things get a little hissy when Larry and Palmerston meet so the cats are kept apart.

In fairness to Larry, I should point out that Palmerston works in an office where he is adored and Larry works primarily with dog people.
Not everyone appreciates awesome office cats. But when the question is cats or rats? Most choose cats and it’s one of the best choices they’ll ever make. Palmerston rocks.
