Following the passing of Tibs the Great, the last great Post Office cat, The Postal Museum is searching for 12 volunteer mousers to fill the vacancy until September 2018.

Each month a successful cat-pplicant will be appointed to the ceremonial role of Postal Museum Cat (PMC). PMCs are expected to work from home so must be reliable purr-fessionals. While a volunteer position, there are great purrks, including provision of an official hat.

To apply, owners must submit a photo of their cat to The Postal Museum on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using @ThePostalMuseum and the hashtags #jobsfurcats and #catsinhats.

Applications for September close on 31 August 2017. Refurrences not required.

A template hat is available to download to aid candidates with their cat-pplication. Visit
