Larry the cat's first day at Downing Street


by ODN


After an eventful day on Tuesday with press interviews and a lot of media attention, Larry, the new cat at No 10 has been settling in.

The Tabby is a new addition to the Cameron's home, brought in to help deal with the troublesome rodent population.

He was recruited from Battersea Dogs and Cats Home on Tuesday after a series of sightings of rats in the street outside the Prime Minister's official residence.

David Cameron has welcomed Larry into his home, saying he will make a "great addition" to the No 10 team.

Larry's food is expected to be paid for by a whip-round among Downing St staff, rather than funded from the public purse.

It is hoped he will get to work on the rats as soon as possible.
