A whisky cat is a cat that works at whisky distilleries. You can see the sight of whisky cats working in Scotland. Whisky is one of the most popular drinks in Scotland and is made from barley.

But barley is often damaged because it is food that birds and mice like to eat. So whisky cats work to get rid of mice and birds. Cats catch mice, so they can protect the making of whisky.

However, whisky cats are disappearing because of technical innovations and some recent regulations in whisky distilleries. But many whisky cats still work as a mascot for these distilleries.
