LONDON (AP) ó Larry the cat, a four-legged inhabitant of Londonís 10 Downing St., is marking a decade as Britainís mouse-catcher in chief on Monday.
The tabby cat was recruited by then-Prime Minister David Cameron to deal with a pack of rats seen scuttling close to the British leaderís official residence, and entered Downing Street on Feb. 15, 2011.
The former stray, adopted from Londonís Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, was given the title Chief Mouser to the Cabinet Office, an unofficial pest control post. He was the first cat to hold the rat-catching portfolio since the retirement of Humphrey in 1997, and has loyally served three prime ministers.
Larry's welcome in the Lesbaru anytime.
