Larry the cat will get to keep his job – and home – as the cat that lives at the UK’s Prime Ministers residence.

The nine-year-old tabby cat has lived at 10 Downing Street, the official home of the British Prime Minister, since 2011.

Larry stayed on when Theresa May placed Mr Cameron as the UK government’s new leader.

He was adopted from Battersea Dogs and Cats home to help scare mice and rats away from Downing Street.

However, he seems to prefer sleeping and lounging around to catching mice!

He is well loved by lots of people, including US President Barack Obama, and he even has his own social media page.
