Boris Johnson celebrates International Cat Day with photo of himself and Larry the Cat

I bet Boris’s girlfriend Carrie Symonds took the photo as she is an animal advocate (thank God) and an environmentalist. It is a great picture but it looks like Boris was told to sit at his desk while Larry was plonked on it. I am sure the whole episode took about 2 minutes! I am pleased though. Boris musters a smile, just.

Well done Carrie. It was a good idea as it shows a softer, animal loving side to Boris. We know that he is alpha so it is good to see that he can be beta when he has to be. Larry is No 10’s celebrated mouser, adopted from Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. He fights with his neighbour at the Foreign Office, Palmerston.

Larry and Boris. Photo: no idea who took it. Probably one of his advisers at No 10.

There was a lot of talk recently about Boris adopting a rescue dog from Battersea. The dog would have to get along with Larry and he is a fixture. He belongs at No 10. The next news item on animals and Boris Johnson should be about Boris and Carrie’s new dog. We await with baited breath.
