“Well done, lovely.”

“If there isn’t an empty cage he will ask a member of the team to grab him one.

“Aldi contacted me to invite Rupert into their Mansfield store to meet the store manager and area manager.

“They got him the t-shirt and badge with his name on, plus a customer service star.

“Rupert was shown around the store; in the office, in the warehouse, in the big fridge and freezers and in the staff room where he found a big bag of Christmas treats just for him.

Kirsty added: “The customers thought he was super cute and some commented saying ‘they start them young here’ and things like ‘is he on an apprenticeship?’

“Rupert said he loved everything about working at Aldi. He even got to try out a till.”
