Larry the cat moves into No 10 Downing Street

275x250.jpg In a bid to ensure Downing Street becomes rat free, a four-year old tabby cat called Larry has moved into No 10 with David Cameron.

The puss had been a resident at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home until a spate of rodent sightings in Downing Street saw David Cameron look to recruit a feline rat-catcher.

After talking to his two elder children, Nancy and Arthur, the Prime Minister is said to have chosen Larry, who had been found wandering the capital in January.

A Downing Street spokesperson said Larry had already shown a "strong predatory drive" and enjoyed playing with toy mice… only time will tell what rats he catches around No 10 & No 11. We're saying nothing.

"10 Downing Street really is a cat’s dream, as there are lots of places to explore, so I am confident Larry will enjoy living there and do a great job."

Battersea Rehomer SuiLi Stenhouse added: "They were looking for a Battersea cat that could sort out any rats but also get on with everybody.

"When people rehome a dog or cat from Battersea, the people who will be looking after the animal are asked to visit us, to ensure it’s a good match.

"10 Downing Street’s situation was a bit different but Larry will be primarily cared for by members of staff and those staff visited Battersea to meet and choose a cat. Larry was the unanimous choice."
