Larry the cat (left), who was previously the chief mouser at Downing Street could soon be seeking new employment after being replaced in the post. It seems Larry was simply not doing the job properly, with the last straw being when the Prime Minister spotted a mouse making it’s way across the floor whilst Larry slept.
Larry will be replaced by Chancellor George Osborne’s cat, Freya (pictured right) who will now patrol numbers 10, 11 and 12. The new arrangement has been described as a job share although it seems more like a reshuffle. Something tells me Larry has been fed a little too many kitty treats and lost his hunting edge.
