After two months on the job, Downing Street's "Chief Mouser" as cats who catch government rats are called--finally snared his first prey.
On Good Friday, Larry appeared through a window from the Downing Street garden with a mouse in his mouth. He is believed to have dropped his swag at the feet of the prime minster's secretaries.
Recruited to deal with a rodent problem--black rats have been seen bolting across the Downing Street lawn--Larry has preferred hanging out in the corridors of power to stalking in the grass.
Announcing his new hire, the prime minster's spokesman said Larry had been "highly recommended."
According to Prime Minster David Cameron's spokesman, Larry possesses a "very strong predatory drive and high chase drive and hunting instinct."
