Larry the Cat (b.2007) is a British domestic tabby cat who has served as Chief mouser to the Cabinet Office at 10 Downing Street since 2011. He is not the personal property of the prime minister and is cared for by Downing Street staff. 

To date, Larry has served during the premierships of five prime ministers:David Cameron, Theresa May, Boris Johnson, Liz Truss & Rishi Sunak.  

Larry was born as a stray around January 2007 and later came into the possession of the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home. In 2011, he was adopted by Downing Street staff. Sources at Downing Street describe him as a "good ratter" and as having "a high chase-drive and hunting instinct". 

Larry was honoured with a blue plaque at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in October 2012.

This tea towel would look great in your window for the 2024 General Election!

Half Panama unbleached organic cotton (heavy weight, textured finish). Stitched on all four sides. Includes hanging loop. Measures approximately 48cm x 70cm. Machine wash at 40 degrees centigrade max. We recommend that before you use your tea towel for the first time you wash it at least once to soften up the material and make it more absorbent for drying dishes. Please note size can vary slightly.
