Do you have a motivated meower at home, or maybe your kitty just needs to start earning his keep? Well, the Postal Museum is calling for a dozen “Post Office Cats” – and they’ll be hiring one feline a month through September 2018!
We should say up front that this gig isn’t paid. However, it does come with plenty of other perks: your kitty can work from home, he’ll get a fashionable hat, and lots of adoring social media fans. What more could you ask for, really?
We and our Postcat hats were just featured by @timeoutlondon!

While the job title is “Volunteer Mouser,” since the position is remote, we’re thinking that the position’s biggest role is to be the furry face of the museum.
The Postal Museum Puss…here we are! After a careful consideration, we have chosen the best of the best. Let us introduce you to our finalists: Sullivan, Phoebe, Mochi, Flossie, Frankie Ninja, and Artemis and Apollo. Who do you think will be the lucky winner? #jobsfurcats #catsinhats #catsofinstagram @charlie_pratley @themainecoonlife @jadeyblah
The Postal Museum website explains:
“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.”
Even if your strong, independent working cat is ready to contribute to the household, he’ll still need a hand applying for the job. The website instructs:
Likewise, you’ll need your thumbs to download and print a template of the Postal Cat Hat for your kitty to meowdel for his application headshot.
Here’s another photo of the lucky felines that nabbed the position for September 2017!
