'Huge Security Issue': Larry The Cat Disrupts Trump's Downing Street Visit

Larry made it very clear he couldn't care less about Donald Trump's visit to No.10 Downing Street on Tuesday.

The brown and white tabby, who has called the British Prime Minister's residence home since 2011, took on the President on day two of this U.K. visit.

Footage has emerged of the 'Chief Mouser to the Cabinet Office' strutting down the red carpet before photobombing Trump, outgoing Prime Minister Theresa May and their partners from the window ledge, and taking a seat under 'the Beast' -- Trump's US$1.5 million armoured limo, bringing it to a halt.

The sassy welcome certainly amused the world's media gathered on Larry's doorstep.

"Huge security issue as Larry the Downing St. cat shelters under Donald Trump’s limo 'The Beast' and refuses to move," NBC reporter Bill Neely tweeted.

Larry became a household name in Britain after he was recruited for his exceptional hunting skills in 2011, during David Cameron's stint as PM.

“Larry spends his days greeting guests to the house, inspecting security defences and testing antique furniture for napping quality,” the U.K. government’s official webpage reads.

His day to day responsibilities also include "contemplating a solution to the mouse occupancy of the house".

But this elite mouse catcher hasn't just captured the hearts of the British public and press packs, he's found a soft spot in the hearts of many around the world.

Last month the 'Chief Mouser' was forcibly removed from the entrance to 10 Downing Street as Prime Minister Theresa May was preparing to announce her resignation.

Footage stretched to the U.S. and Australia.

In November 2018, the tabby also made headlines here in Australia after he became stranded on the steps of No 10 on a miserable yet typical London day.

Thankfully, a kind-hearted police officer offered some assistance, knocking on the front door to let Larry in to dry off his fur.

He's so popular he even has his own *unofficial* Twitter account, which has close to 270,000 followers.

As all cats do, Larry tweets some pretty thought-provoking stuff:

As the U.K. prepares to welcome a brand new Prime Minister, we can be assured that this is certainly not the last we'll see of Larry the 'Chief Mouser'.
