KittyLeaks: Cat Joins Julian Assange on Asylum

As WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange reaches the fourth anniversary of his asylum at the Ecuadorean embassy in London. As a gift to keep him company, his children gave the infamous computer programmer a kitten. (Assange famously sought asylum in 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden on rape charges and then to the United States for publishing secret documents.)

A descendent of the European wildcat, the cute little female kitten has yet to be named. Assange, however, is keeping the world updated on his feline friend’s antics via Twitter, using the handle @EmbassyCat:

WikiLeaks said the kitten’s name would be chosen by the public and announced next month.

Just when this dog-eat-dog world has handed you all the poop you can take, it's time to walk the dog. Or wash the dog. Or feed the dog. You get the idea. So welcome to the world of easy-to-care-for cats. Entertainment comes bundled in a furry, huggable, self-cleaning cat who won't beg for your food. In his eyes, you don't eat well enough anyway. Just keep a laser pen handy, sit back and wait for the fun to begin! Cats...ya gotta love 'em.
