A new prime minister is moving into 10 Downing Street, but one well-known resident has no intentions of leaving.
Larry the Cat, who has the official title of “Chief Mouser to the Cabinet Office,” will stay on and serve under Britain’s new prime minister, Theresa May.
The feline’s snarky reaction to the exit of David Cameron and the arrival of May were captured on the cat’s unofficial Twitter account.
Larry was adopted from a rescue in 2011 after a rat was spotted around the 10 Downing Street property -- a scene the BBC captured on live television. According to Cameron, Larry hasn’t exactly been great at his job, but the cat doesn’t seem to be worried about losing it.
