One lucky cat, who began the year as homeless and being cared for by the wonderful staff at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, struck gold when being integrated back into the world of being a domestic pet.
Short-haired feline Larry, who was found on the London streets nearby to the Magdalen Estate, has now been adopted by David Cameron and his household staff at 10 Downing Street, not only to keep them company and bring a sense calm and serenity to the Prime Minister’s home, but it is also hoped that he’ll help keep the pests under control, and get rid of the rats that have been reported to have been seen in the residence in recent months.
Battersea’s Claire Horton told the Wandsworth Guardian, “Larry is a fantastic cat and I’m sure he’ll do the charity proud in his new home and hopefully keep the rats at bay.” As far as we can tell, old Larry will also have a marvellous time exploring the nooks and crannies of number 10- any animal’s dream.
