From BBC.com.  Tells of the British Foreign Office's latest agent in the war on mice, as well as a few other cats in Her Majesty's service.  And I do not take any credit for the puns.  :D

They're totally copying Japan. There's a cat that lives at a train station called Tama.

I've heard about that.  Given the British and the Japanese and their mutual love for tradition, I have to wonder which country started doing it first.
