    Larry the cat, the Chief Mouser to the Cabinet Office, the title of the official resident cat of the Prime Minister, sits on the steps of 10 Downing Street, the residence of Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron, in London, Friday, June 24, 2016.

    Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron is leaving 10 Downing Street Wednesday, but one member of his team is staying put: Larry the cat.

    The brown and white tabby is deemed to be a government worker and will continue to live at the famous address with the country's new leader, Theresa May, NBC News reported. 

    Cameron, who quit hours after the Brexit vote, will depart sometime Wednesday with his wife, Samantha. 

    Larry is the latest in a line of felines tasked with keeping Downing Street free of rodents. He arrived in 2011 from the London's Battersea Dogs and Cats Home for rescued animals.
