Official Mouser at 10 Downing Street Larry the Cat climbs under Trump's limo
As Trump protests hotted up in London after the arrival of the US president on his state visit with everything from an enormous talking Trump robot sitting on a gold toilet to the re-inflated infamous baby Trump blimp, it's The Official Mouser, Larry the Cat of 10 Downing Street that stole the show.
The 12-year-old cat rescued from the Battersea Animal Shelter has lived at the British Prime Minister's residence since 2011 and has his own Twitter account with hundreds of thousands of loyal followers.
When he took shelter under Trump's bullet-proof state of the art limousine 'The Beast' on Tuesday while the US president was visiting Theresa May at No.10, people were loving it, calling it Larry’s one cat protest.
AFP tweeted: ”It can survive bullets, explosions and chemical weapons, but 'The Beast' -- Donald Trump's famed armoured limousine was brought to a standstill by Larry the Downing Street cat
