Downing Street Cat Faces Calls For His Resignation

Larry the Downing Street cat has been criticized recently for his failure to tackle a mouse who appeared at a state dinner. However, the Prime Minister's spokesman says the cat will not resign: "Larry brings a lot of pleasure to a lot of people." One of those people is apparently our president — the Prime Minister said that although upon his arrival in February, Larry was "'not very keen on men,' he had made an exception in May when he was happy to be stroked by US President Barack Obama."
