Many NHS staff have spent years lobbying and marching to gain official recognition from regulators, but perhaps they should try running around in circles or catching mice instead.

End Game was surprised to hear about George the cat, who somehow prowled his way onto not one but three separate professional therapists’ registers. George’s owner, a BBC journalist, managed to dupe the regulators after producing a phoney certificate from the Society of Certified Advanced Mind Therapists.

In a separate development, a farmer in Kirklees has been fined £150 for failing to meet his cow’s “psychological needs”. As the first accredited therapist of the animal world, perhaps George can lift his miserable moo-d (sorry).
