Manninagh KateDhu, commonly known as Peta, was the Chief Mouser to the Cabinet Office of the United Kingdom government between 1964 and sometime between 1969 and 1976, and was the first female cat in that role. She became the replacement to Peter III, who had died at the age of 16 in 1964. After Peter III's death, the Lieutenant Governor of the Isle of Man, Sir Ronald Garvey, suggested that a Manx cat be his replacement, and sent Peta to the Cabinet. She was noted to be lazy and loud, and by 1969, some civil servants tried to remove her from Cabinet, but this did not happen, because of the suspected bad publicity that this action would incur. She was not heard of again, until a reply to a member of the public in 1976 revealed that she had retired to the home of a civil servant. Her success
