The Cabinet Office has appointed two new members – and they’re both from Newham.

The rather adorable additions are two cats called Evie and Ossie, who were adopted from Canning Town’s Ceila Hammond Animal Trust.

The mother and son were both rescued as strays living on the east London streets.

Charity founder Celia said: “When we had a call from the Cabinet Office wanting two indoor cats for extra mousing duties, the most important thing was to try to find cats that would be able to live in harmony with [10 Downing Street cat] Larry.”
