David Hammond may hold one of England’s oldest and highest offices, Chancellor of the Exchequer, but that doesn’t keep him from being humiliated in his own home by his next door neighbor at Number 10 Downing Street.
The Hammonds recently moved with their dogs, Rex, a Welsh Terrier, and Oscar, a Wire Haired Dachshund, into their 11 Downing Street flat, but the dogs are being locked away upstairs to protect them from the vicious cat who lives next door.
Larry the cat rules the roost and has taken a dislike for the dogs.
While relations between Mr. Hammond and the Prime Minister, Theresa May, appear to be good at the moment, Mr. Hammond has confessed to friends that the cat doesn’t like his dogs and he is forced to lock them inside for their own protection.
Rather he is a civil servant, the chief mouser, whose duty is to keep 10 Downing Street free of mice.
And Larry don't take no crap.
