After taking charge of Vermin Control at the Snow Hill police station in London for over a decade, Reagan the cat is finally leaving his post.

The much-loved 11-year-old, London's last remaining station cat, is being honored by other officers for his "purrfessionalism" above and beyond the call of duty.

Pure white, short-haired Reagan was hired by the force in 1997 at just 8-months-old, to tackle an infestation of mice and rats at the division's headquarters.

Reagan's prowess has earned him regular spots of fame; he has featured in a TV documentary; been shortlisted for an lifetime achievement award; and even has his own Facebook page, where he is listed as "Reagan Snow."

Reagan is to be presented with a service certificate thanking him for his "100 percent arrest rate of mice and rats."
