The Cat Who Belonged to a Union

Sister Smudge was the name of a cat who worked at the social museum People's Palace in Glasgow, Scotland between 1979 and 1990, when she retired.  Smudge's face appeared on various gift shop items, and she became a local celebrity.

Museum staff applied for her membership into the General, Municipal, and Boilermakers Trade Union.  She was a member of the Union until her death in 2000.

Apparently, Sister Smudge's ghost remains at the museum.
