Feline Friday – #45 – Larry the Cat



Larry the Cat.

Although there is a change in leadership in the UK as David Cameron hands over the reigns at Number 10 Downing Street, Larry the Cat lends some stability to the government.

Originally hired in 2011 as a mouser, a skill that has been disputed, Larry took up residence as chief napper in the Prime Minister’s household.

David Cameron is not a cat lover so Larry gets to stay put. Larry is probably quite happy about that anyway as that means he doesn’t have to give up his favorite chairs.

I am an explorer and creative person. I've had many jobs, careers and interests... everything in life and the universe fascinates me. Born in Brighton, England, I've lived my entire adult life in Los Angeles, California. A few years ago I rediscovered photography which is a great excuse to get outside and look. I'm also in the process of re-writing some of my unpublished short stories and possibly a novel. .
