If you aren't familiar with these cats, here's what you need to know: Larry is the Mouser in Chief at the Prime Minister's residence in the U.K. and Palmerston is the Foreign Office cat that lives next door. The two don't seem to like each other very much and British news outlets can't help but cover all of their cat-on-cat drama.
Larry and Palmerston had their worst fight yet the other night and the MiC had to make a visit to the vet. Hopefully they'll be able to settle their political differences soon, before they both get hurt.

If you aren't familiar with the historic Brexit vote that's about to take place, here's the gist: British voters will soon decide if they want the United Kingdom to remain in or leave the European Union. It's kind of a big deal, but who cares what humans think, right? The cats have spoken and they are very much against "the British exit".

After noticing that their buddy, 20-year-old Keiran Cable, had been missing ever since he started dating his girlfriend—they knew that something had to be done.
So the group of 50 footballers from Wales decided to do what any reasonable group of young men would do. They organized a fake funeral to say goodbye to their beloved friend.
The funeral took place at a local pub and included everything a good funeral must have: service leaflets, a coffin, funeral procession and time for friends to read their special memories.
"I was in complete shock and didn't know what to do or say. My cheeks were aching from smiling so much. The boys made a massive effort and it was definitely a day to remember," Cable said.
It's been kind of a mixed bag for athletes making the difficult decision to come out as gay. It helps to have Hermione on your side.
Keegan Hirst recently broke many boundaries, coming out as Britain's first openly gay rugby player. For a macho guy in a macho sport with macho teammates and macho fans, it wasn't the easiest of decisions. He's received a lot of support for the decision, marking even more how much the world has grown in a short time.
And in a beautiful and classy move, Emma Watson congratulated Hirst in a series of tweets Aug. 18.
Courage is the choice and willingness to confront agony, pain, danger, uncertainty or intimidation.— Emma Watson (@EmWatson) August 18, 2015
.... Physical courage is courage in the face of physical pain, hardship, death or threat of death,— Emma Watson (@EmWatson) August 18, 2015
Hirst spoke to the Daily Mirror about coming out Aug. 15.
Respected prop Keegan, 27, reveals the secret torment of dealing with his sexuality while carving out a career in one of the world's most macho sports.
Speaking exclusively to the Sunday Mirror, the dad of two tells of the moment he finally found the words to explain to his wife the reason they could no longer be together.
And he talks emotionally of the support he got, not only from her but also from his rugby team-mates.
The 6ft 4in captain of West Yorkshire side Batley Bulldogs said: "At first I couldn't even say 'I'm gay' in my head, let alone out loud.
"Now I feel like I'm letting out a long breath that I've held in for a long time."
Societal attitudes take a long time to evolve, but that evolution couldn't happen without people like Hirst taking initiative and influential people like Watson supporting them.
Well done, everyone.
A 47-year-old British woman named Jacqueline Williams was arrested and charged with racially aggravated public order offense yesterday, only hours after the British Transportation Police issued a public appeal on YouTube to identify the female passenger who was seen hurling racist remarks at other train passengers in a recently upload video (shown left). It seems that the British law enforcement has taken a liking to crowd-sourced investigations, as yesterday's arrest marked the third case of racial abuse involving a viral transit fight video from this year.
