London - (Paws 4 Thought): The fur is really flying today amid accusations the new No 10 pussy is yet another useless Tory fat cat.
Worried vermin control operatives reckon the sumptuous centrally heated government HQ will soon see feline Larry sleeping on the job.
His appointment by David Cameron this week may be based on 'sexed up' animal shelter reports.
Then neutered male four year-old's track record so far is confined to chasing fluffy toys at Battersea Dog and Cat Rescue Home.
No record of any actual vermin kills can be found although an earlier punch-up with some British Blue Shorthairs may provide a clue to Larry's credentials.
The last feline involved in Whitehall vermin extermination may have been the Official Monster Raving Loony Party's Cat Mandu.
The ginger tom stood as the party's official parliamentary candidate until 2002 when a mysterious suspected hit and run incident put paid to his political aspirations.
Larry 'the Lamb' is 6.9kg.
