Larry the Cat at 10 Downing Street

Larry, a rescue cat, is the Chief Mouser at The Prime Minister's Residence, London!

Larry takes no guff from anyone.
The Prime Ministers who've served while Larry has been in office:

David Cameron: 11 May 2010 – 13 July 2016
Theresa May: 13 July 2016 – 24 July 2019
Boris Johnson: 24 July 2019 – 6 September 2022
Liz Truss: 6 September 2022 – 25 October 2022
Rishi Sunak: since 25 October 2022
(Lots of turnover!)

Larry began his employment on 15 February 2011, as companion animal to Mr. Cameron's children, but his talents in rodent control have kept him employed, and housed, at the residence.

You go, Larry!

Hope your invitation to the King's Coronation is in the post!

Larry is a very good vermin control expert. He even saw off an urban fox a while back.

Poor Larry has had to deal with some highly unpleasant residents over the years.

You'd think they'd give the prime minister a mouse-free residence. Though, considering how fast they are coming and going, they may figure Larry is the most stable occupant at Number Ten.
