Palmerston back on form…….

The Foreign Office’s famous chief mouser is back on duty after some well-deserved down time. It seems the furry fella was finding his role rather taxing at times (feeling hemmed-in; too much petting, that kind of thing) and had been over-grooming on his front legs – a sure sign of stress.

To keep him chipper from now on, the ‘Palmerston Protocols’ will apply, including: Everyone at the FO must respect his personal space; and if he’s cat-napping, let him be. Sound feline advice….
