Larry has reshuffled Palmerston: sent him to the Isle of Dogs.

Trump may come to regret sneering at the location of the new US Embassy in London. Battersea has produced some magnificent Brits:

I am shocked and saddened to read that Larry has been accused of sexual misconduct.


Disgraced veteran mouser, Larry, the Downing Street Cat, on Friday admitted that there was "some truth" in the allegations of bullying and of sexual misconduct that were levelled against him earlier in the week.

In a statement, he apologised to the other cats, whose experiences were reported by Cat Monthly Magazine on Tuesday.

The Downing Street cat added: “The power I had over these other cats is that they were a bit smaller than me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly.”



Larry has at least responded honestly to his accusers, and with some attempt at dignity and remorse. He says that since he was "taken to the vets" in 2007, he has done nothing of which he is ashamed. Can all Government cats, notably the one at the Foreign Office, say the same? Palmerston?

Larry's performance - with reference to the superior skills of a certain member of the Foreign Office staff - was the subject of a piece (page 2) in The Sunday Times yesterday. There was also a short editorial (with the corny heading of Moggie (sic) may give us paws) on page 22.

May I point out that I was writing about all this here on Res Historica's Moggy thread months ago? I want a job on The Sunday Times.

EDIT: And ferval - also ages ago - mentioned the threat to Larry from that ridiculous Jacob Rees-Moggie.

You read it here first.

They are wittering on again today about Brexit at Number 10. Larry has tweeted that he is "under the table". I bet he is, too.

Oh, Larry, Larry, you foolish cat. When will you ever learn? You have just cost the British economy billions.

And Palmerston, of course, was already preparing to butter up the Japanese last summer.

According to the DM - so it may be fake news - Larry has had minor surgery on an old war wound from undiplomatic incident with You Know Who of next door. He has been ordered two days bed rest but one assumes he is nocturnal. Does No 10 have a front door cat flap? Who lets him in or out? Is there an appointed Larrex flunkey? As ever the govt never gives out enough information.

Larry and Palmerston have been fighting again - another terrible and undignified brawl was reported as happening yesterday morning. Larry does not seem able to cope anymore: he lost a lot of fur in this latest altercation, and his UK collar was ripped off and left lying in the dust of Downing Street. The Evening Standard is reporting that many people see all this as a sad metaphor for Brexit:


A Brexit Metafur

Medieval marginalia are always entertaining, I like this one of a cat besieged in a castle by mice.



And although not a moggy I like the expression on the face of the dragon. Note how he is presumably being punished by having his tail tied in a knot.

Any cat with a magnificent tail (see below) - like my neighbours' Maine Coon (the bane of Bosworth's life) - will sympathise with the unfortunate dragon.

I loved those pictures, MM - thank you for posting them. The besieged medieval moggy picture should be tweeted to Larry the Cat at once. I think he would respond. I want copies for my 2018 Christmas cards.



It seems magnificent tails are a liability in this world (and possibly the next), whether one is a dragon or a moggy.

I have tweeted Larry the Cat with your medieval moggies pictures, plus link to Res His. The powerful feline has not, as yet, responded.
