I don’t know if the British are smarter than we are, more progressive or what, BUT instead of using pesticides, which can have unintended consequences, Her Majesty’s Service apparently employ cats to deal with rodent issues in their public buildings. The Foreign Office statement said, “Palmerston is HM Diplomatic Service’s newest arrival and in the role of FCO Chief Mouser will assist our pest controllers in keeping down the number of mice in our King Charles Street building.” … Is it just me, or does Palmertson look very confident about his ability to succeed at his job?

I also recently saw a story on CNN about American companies ’employing cats’ for that story, click here.
