Larry The Downing Street Cat Celebrates One Year Of Service With A Balloon Filled Bash

It's hard to believe it's already been a year since Larry took up residence at 10 Downing Street with British Prime Minister David Cameron, but a lot has happened in his tenure as "Chief Mouser to the Cabinet Office." Since being adopted from the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home last February, the political-minded tabby has made headlines for his killer instinct (or lack thereof), rumors about his love life, and outrage over being banned from stepping paw inside the PM's newly renovated apartment.

Yesterday, Larry celebrated a year of highs and lows with a low-key celebration that included a bevy of colorful cat balloons and a nap on the sofa. The festive feline was caught trying out some of his best dance moves before fellow revelers arrived, while esteemed guests included knitted mice that were crafted by members of the public (if you would like to knit some to donate to Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, you can find the pattern here).

Sending out our heartfelt congrats to Larry on making it twelve long months in office! If you would like to see more pictures from his fiesta, you can check them out here.

Anyone else see the resemblance between Larry and Shankley. Give poor Shankly a little time to fatten up and heal, and they could be twins.

@Mrs. Vandertramp Yes! I was thinking the same thing, actually! :)
