每日英語跟讀 Ep.921: About UK -British Foreign Office cat heads for retirement

Palmerston, the cat who has lived at the Foreign Office for four and a half years, will trade in his London residence for retirement in the countryside, where his mouse-catching duties for the diplomats will come to an end.

帕默斯頓,那隻4年半來生活在外交部的貓,將從倫敦的官邸換到鄉下退休,屆時牠替外交官捕鼠的任務將劃下句點。

Writing to the more than 100,000 followers on his Twitter feed, the black and white moggy, who once lived at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, said he wanted to spend more time relaxing away from the limelight.

這隻一度住在「巴特西貓狗之家」的黑白貓在推特上向超過10萬名跟隨者發文說,牠想把更多時間用來放輕鬆,遠離公眾關注。

"I have enjoyed climbing trees and patrolling the fields around my new home in the countryside," he wrote to the Foreign Office’s most senior civil servant, Simon McDonald, signing off with two paw prints.

牠寫給外交部最高階公務員西蒙.麥唐諾:「我喜歡爬樹,在我鄉下新家附近巡邏」,結尾留下兩隻爪印。

"I will miss hearing the footsteps of an Ambassador and sprinting to my hideout to see who it is."

「我會想念聽到大使的腳步聲,以及快快跑到我的藏身處看看是誰。」

There will be no wider reshuffle as Larry the cat remains on Downing Street whilst fellow feline Gladstone retains his post at the finance ministry.

不會有更大幅度改組,貓兒賴瑞繼續待在唐寧街,而貓夥伴格萊斯頓保留財政部的職位。
