The once-playful kitten is sporting a new, more serious look.
Assange, who has been living in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since 2012, was given the kitten by his children back in May. Living in such intense political turmoil makes a young cat grow up quickly apparently. It’s hard to believe the chill kitten from only a few months ago…
…has become the melancholy business cat of today.
Assange’s fate is a hazy one. Although a United Nations panel found the he was being “arbitrarily detained,” if he were to leave the embassy he could still be arrested and extradited to Sweden; and possibly the United States, where he could face trial for treason.
The cat will most likely be fine.
