Het zal morgen een emotioneel moment zijn voor David Cameron, zijn vrouw Samantha en met name de kinderen: het afscheid van Larry, de muizenvanger van 10 Downing Street. De kat, zo is besloten, zal er blijven wonen wanneer Theresa May met haar man Philip haar intrek neemt. Larry ontmoette de afgelopen jaren tal van wereldleiders, en werd de lieveling van de bewakingsagenten voor de deur.
