It is known that animals in England that guard food warehouses are fed at public expense. Cats are especially revered there, as they protect the exhibits from mice in the British Museum. In addition, in the United Kingdom, furry quadrupeds are part of the staff of some London post offices. They occupy a very important position — they protect parcels from damage and penetration of rodents. Cats receive an official “salary” that increases from time to time due to inflation, and this has been happening for 130 years. One of the world’s largest toy manufacturers has officially hired a stray cat to guard a warehouse of toys, prepared for Christmas gift sales.
