All of England was shocked when Larry the cat was caught playing with a mouse and letting it go in clear dereliction of his duties as the official mouser of 10 Downing Street. Now Larry has competition from Palmerston, the official mouser of the Foreign Office.
Palmerston has been recorded having killed 27 mice and he’s not done yet. Of course, that’s only mice that the Foreign Office has been able to verify so there’s no telling how many actual mice Palmerston has killed. If you thought the power struggle between British politics was brutal, be ready for the struggle between the best cat to begin at 10 Downing Street.
