The house at No. 10 Downing Street in London is probably one of the most famous buildings in the world. UK prime ministers have lived there since 1902, and tourists and journalists walk in front of the door every day. But what many people do not know is that one of the oldest inhabitants of the house is Larry the cat. Since 2011, he has been living as the main Mouser along with shifting politicians.
In 2011, Larry came to 10 Downing Street from Battersea Dogs and Cats Home. So the shelter staff warmly recommended Larry to them. The cat loved to catch mice and other small animals government website.
Larry also stays away from foxes
A few days ago, the famous cat had to master a completely different task. When a fox got lost in Downing Street and approached the house, Larry didn’t hesitate for a second and chased after. At first he drove the wild animal off the road into the bush. There he hid briefly with a bushy tail and then began to attack. The cat jumped into the bush, pushed the fox out and finally got him out of the way, as the viral video shows.
The English love the master mouse hunter
The chase was a far cry from Larry’s first encounter with other types in Downing Street. In December 2020, while the entire country was waiting for an update on Brexit from the government, the famous cat was apparently as upset as many of his compatriots. When he saw a pigeon outside the office door, he detonated a canister, pounced on the bird, and then released it.
Apparently, his real opponent is a cat from the house next door. With his black velvet paw, he regularly engages in verbal fights on the street. The English love him for this originality. Even for celebrity or current Prime Minister Liz Truss, Larry doesn’t give up his will. It is real original. In return, he receives daily mail from fans and treats from residents, which strengthens him in nocturnal rat hunts.
