All These Jokes Have Probably Been Made Already

From BBC News: Larry the cat joins David Cameron in Downing Street
David Cameron has welcomed a cat to Downing Street in an effort to deal with No 10's rat problem.
What, is he deathly allergic to cats or something? HEY-OH!
According to Downing Street, the animal has "a high chase-drive and hunting instinct", developed during his time on the streets.
Incidentally, Robin Cook had the same thing.
He is the latest in a long line of Downing Street cats, known unofficially as Chief Mouser to the Cabinet Office.
Officially: Chancellor of the Exchequer.
Humphrey was adopted in 1989 after wandering into No 10 as a stray while Margaret Thatcher was prime minister.
Jesus. How bad must the London streets be for stray cats if they'd rather live with Margaret Thatcher?

Downing Street has also suggested that Larry might be consulted to help slash the budget.
