Larry The Cat from 10 Downing Street Chases Fox Away

Larry the cat – Chief Mouser of “Number 10” has been busy of late. While his normal duties at 10 Downing Street in London are to chase off mice and test out the sleeping quality and comfort of the residence’s furniture – he took on a new challenge – a wayward fox!

Larry was recently caught on video chasing off a fox at the Prime Minister’s residence and executive office in London. At first, Larry slowly approaches the fox and encourages him to move away…and then he quickly enters into a sprint, chasing furiously after the fox. The score? Larry – 1, Fox – 0.
