A cunning intruder tried to pull off the purr-fect crime by sneaking into British Prime Minister Theresa May's residence at 10 Downing Street on Monday.

But Palmerston — a frisky tuxedo cat belonging to Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson — was quickly ejected by security guards who sent the mischievous feline on his way.

Not that it was a matter of national security.

Palmerston, who serves as "chief mouser" at Foreign Office headquarters, apparently does not get along with Larry, an orange -and-white tabby who lives at 10 Downing, The Telegraph reports.

May inherited Larry from former Prime Minister David Cameron, who stepped down earlier this month following the controversial "Brexit" vote.
