Downing Street has refused to make Larry, the Downing Street cat, redundant after reports a mouse appeared at a recent prime ministerial dinner, according to the BBC News.
The PM was with other ministers, including Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith, when the mouse appeared. It has been questioned whether the 4-year-old Larry, that has been living in PM's house since February, should keep his job. However, PM's spokesman said that "Larry brings a lot of pleasure to a lot of people. and has also shown "a very strong predatory drive" and enjoyed playing with toy mice.
According to the BBC News, the prime minister told in June that Larry was "a good mouser" and had caught three mice since his arrival.
