Downing Street Cat

Asked about reports of a Downing Street cat, the PMS replied that Mr and Mrs Darling were living in the flat above No10 in Downing Street, he understood that they did have a cat, and that the cat had recently been brought to Downing Street. He had not seen it himself, but he understood the cat’s name was Sybil.

Asked if the cat would have the run of Downing Street as Humphrey did, the PMS replied that he was not a cat owner himself, but it was his understanding that it was quite difficult to confine cats to particular areas, so one would expect to see the cat around the place.

Asked if the Prime Minister had a problem with this, the PMS replied that the Prime Minster did not have a problem with this. Asked if Sarah Brown had a problem with the cat, the PMS replied that Sarah Brown did not have a problem with it.

Asked if the Prime Minister had met the cat before, the PMS replied that the Prime Minister had probably met the cat before in Scotland, where the cat previously resided with the Darlings.
