Larry the Cat Plays Security Outside 10 Downing Street
Mice, you've been warned: Beware of the cat at 10 Downing Street.

Larry, the British Prime Minister David Cameron's family pet, also acts as mouser-in-chief at the famous residence. Though it took him a while to get settled, Larry has since gotten comfortable – and he's making his presence known to any rascally rats in the neighborhood.

During a cabinet meeting on Tuesday, Larry sat outside on the stoop next to an armed police officer, and both kept watch over the members of government inside. There would be no intruders – of the human or rodent variety – entering 10 Downing Street that day.
