Fundraiser Quiz Night for Larry the Downing Street Cat

Vodpod videos no longer available.


官邸のネズミ捕りのために飼われることになったラリーくん(デイリーメイル記事)、犬猫シェルターのBattersea Dogs and Cats Homeから昨年4月に引き取られ、捨て猫から一転、オバマ米大統領にもお目通りしたセレブ猫となった。最近、近くのSt James’ Park(セント・ジェームズ・パーク)の管理人小屋に住む猫・Maisie(メイシー)と恋仲だと言う噂があり、お仕事のねずみ取りもさておき、夜な夜などこかに出かけ、昼間は官邸でうとうとしているのだそう。


According to today’s Guardian, there will be a quize night held in the State Rooms at 10 Downing Street to raise money to keep Larry the Downing Street cat.

Originally a rescue cat from the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home (Daily Mail article), brought in to help with Downing Street’s rat problem, Larry turned to be a celeb cat that even befriended with President Obama. There is a rumor that Larry recently got a girlfriend, Maisie, a cat who lives at the nearby St James’ Park keeper’s cottage. It is said that this explains why he goes out most evenings  and most days fall asleep in the Prime Minister’s house.

This event is planned so that tax money wouldn’t be use for Larry, and this well corresponds to Tory government’s budget cut plan. But can’t posh Prime Minister David Cameron pay for having just one cat?? Larry is also intended to be a pet for his children as well!
