Julian Assange Has So Much Time On His Hands That He's Now Dressing His Cat Up In A Suit

WikiLeaks founder and computer programmer Julian Assange must be pretty bored if he's taken to dressing up his cat in a collar and tie to pass the time

When we saw Pamela Anderson delivering a vegan Pret A Manger lunch to Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian Embassy last month, we thought, 'Yep, that's one of the weirder things we've seen happening in London this year'.

But, when we came across pictures of Assange's cat – commonly known as 'Embassy Cat' – chilling in the window of the building wearing a collar and tie yesterday morning, we didn't really know what to think.

Okay, we know it's an embassy and you can't exactly walk around in trainers and your dressing gown, but why is the hell is the cat being dolled up in formal-wear?

I mean, for goodness sake, how bored must the WikiLeaks founder be that he has taken to playing 'dress up' with a feline.

Leave the cat alone, man.

Nothing suspicious under here... 😼 #counterpurrveillance

Embassy Cat has reportedly been living in the embassy since May and was a gift from Assange's children, probably because they know their Dad has minimal contact with the outside world and is in need of a friend – other than Pamela Anderson, that is.

What a smeowgasbord! 😻 #cheese

Embassy Cat has its own Twitter and Instagram accounts and is normally snapped going 'au natural' in his birthday suit but now it looks like he's opting for a real suit to fulfil his cat duties, or what he calls on his Instagram, '#counterpurrveillance'.

Assange has been living in the London-based embassy since 2012 after being granted asylum, despite being wanted for questioning in Sweden over allegations of sexual assault charges.

However, this week he is undergoing questioning from a Swedish prosecutor and a police investigator about his version of events relating to the allegations of assault. Perhaps he's enlisted his cat as his lawyer – stranger things have happened.

Look Assange, get a life and stop dressing up your cat.

It's just weird, mate.
