I can't believe Deathrattle didn't post this first!

After all, it's right in his back yard.

Humphrey the cat dies, but what a life...

Mon Mar 20, 10:37 AM ET

Humphrey, a stray cat who wandered in to the official residence of Britain's prime minister in 1989 and caused a scandal when he "retired" in 1997, has died, a spokesman for Tony Blair said Monday.

The black and white one-time "mouser in chief" was perhaps the most famous pet in a country of animal worshippers.

"World of politics mourns a legend," headlined the Sun, Britain's largest circulation daily newspaper.

"It is true. We learned last week that Humphrey has died," a spokesman confirmed. Humphrey was thought to be 18.

He had wandered into No. 10 Downing Street under Margaret Thatcher and remained throughout the tenure of John Major. But he was sent away to live with a civil servant in "retirement" months after Tony Blair was elected in 1997.

At the time, Conservative opponents accused Blair of having Humphrey put down because the new prime minister's wife Cherie didn't like the cat. Questions were raised. Fur flew.

"Humphrey is now a missing person. Unless I hear from him or he makes a public appearance, I suspect he has been shot," opposition Conservative politician Alan Clark declared at the time.

The government finally arranged for press photos to prove Humphrey was still alive, saying he had gone to live with a civil servant to be treated for illness.

He was photographed, hostage-like, with copies of the day's newspapers to show the pictures were fresh. Blair's office issued a statement saying Cherie was sad to see him go.

It was not the only time Humphrey had been embroiled in scandal. In 1994 the government had to issue an official denial after the cat was accused of killing a family of robins.

One of the headlines is worth the ink it is printed with.

Our news ran that story aswell.

I think he means age of consent is 16 but if you are over 18 and do 'it' with a 16yo then its not legal?

nope, so long as your both over the age of 16 then its legal.

although i doubt it would happen, a to be honest i hope it doesnt, but a 50 year old woman could have sex with a 16 year old boy without it breaking the law
