Assange's cat steals spotlight while WikiLeaks boss questioned
Known as ‘embassy cat’, the tabby was even dressed for the occasion, wearing a shirt collar along with a red and white striped tie.
The sneaky feline has often been spotted prowling through the embassy grounds and proved to be a handy companion for Assange, who has been residing in the Ecuadorian embassy since 2012.
The pet was pictured curiously watching from the embassy window not long after Swedish representatives arrived to oversee the questioning of its owner regarding rape allegations.
During his stay at the embassy, Assange’s cat has been a trustworthy companion after being gifted to the WikiLeaks co-founder by his children earlier this year.
In its Twitter account, the pet has been known to get involved in politics, including the US elections.
It didn’t hold back on what it thought of Brexit either.
Embassy cat even has friends such as “Meowchael” Moore.
It remains unclear if the Swedish officials were welcomed by the moggy.
