Did you know the UK has an official "mouser cat" ?

On 16 September 2012, it was reported that Prime Minister David Cameron had sacked Larry from the post of Chief Mouser, in favour of Chancellor George Osborne's tabby, Freya, as the new Chief Mouser to patrol Numbers 10, 11, and 12. Some sources described the new arrangement as a "job share" to avoid any hurt feelings. Chief Mousers in the past have overlapped, or been phased in - though the position can and has remained vacant for extended periods of time. Larry is the only Chief Mouser listed on the official web site for Number 10.

1. Handsome kitty ...

I'm a tad taken aback that it isn't a ginger.

I always associate England with a rough and tumble seems to take charge ginger cat.

Welcome and good to know you're on the job "Larry".

5. Love Henri!

Would not count on him to do much mousing, though.
