...but what about Julian Assange's cat?

Ecuadorian President Lenín Moreno seemed annoyed when he announced an end to the seven-year residency of Julian Assange in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London:

"We've ended the asylum of this spoiled brat," he said.

But what about the asylum of Assange's cat?

The WikiLeaks founder, who was arrested Thursday, has been charged with conspiring to hack into a Pentagon computer network. Presumably, Assange's illegal interactions with former Army intelligence officer Chelsea Manning are the main interest of law enforcement.

Then there is the matter of paw enforcement. (Sorry.)

While holed up, Assange famously acquired a cat. The cat, named Michi, is more well known by its social media moniker, Embassy Cat. More than 30,000 Twitter followers, and 6,000 on Instagram, followed the self-described master of "counter-purrveillance."

Julian Assange gave away his cat last November 2018. The cat's name was "Michi" which is Equadorian Spanish for cat. The cat also went by the name "Cat-stro" after the death of Fidel Castro, and "Embassy Cat."

I bet he didn’t clean out his cats litter box emoticon-animal-022

I figured that is why he got kicked out.......the litter box. I just hope some kind soul is caring for the cat but other countries don't elevate pets like we do so.....maybe someone will write about what happened.

Replying to @AssangeLegal @NickdMiller
In the same document in which Ecuador threatened to hand Assange over for arrest, Ecuador also threatened to put Assange's cat in the pound.
Insensed at the threat, he asked his lawyers to take his cat to safety. The cat is with Assange's family. They will be reunited in freedom.

WikiLeaks
We can confirm that Assange's cat is safe. Assange asked his lawyers to rescue him from embassy threats in mid-October. They will be reunited in freedom. #FreeAssange #NoExtradition
