I'll bet Cherie is pleased....

Sadly, Humphrey, the Number 10 cat has died.

Back in 1997, Cherie apparently 'banished' Humphrey from Number 10; the ensuing PR nightmare (there were rumours that Cherie had ordered Humphrey to an early visit to the great Scratching Post in the sky), resulted in a flurry of press releases stating that Humphrey was not 'paws up' had been 'retired' due to ill health.

In true British style the media were heavily involved, being smuggled to his new residence and photographing Humphrey 'hostage-style' with copies of the days papers to prove he was still alive, later a photo was released of Cherie clutching Humphrey showing that there were no hard feelings...
