Wikileaks founder Julian Assange may have been getting lonely living in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for the past four years, but now he has something to keep him company: a new kitten.
The cat, which has yet to be named, was a gift from Assange’s children, ITV reports. But according to its new Twitter handle, it takes after its owner: the cat’s bio says it is “interested in counterpurr-veillance.”
Assange has been living in the Ecuadorian embassy since being granted diplomatic asylum by the country in 2012. Sweden has attempted to extradite him for questioning in a sexual assault investigation, which Assange believes could lead to his transfer to U.S. custody for his role in leaking classified documents on Wikileaks.
In February, a United Nations group found that Sweden and the U.K. are violating Assange’s rights. Assange’s lawyers have applied to Sweden to enforce the UN’s findings.
At least now he has a feline friend to help him wait.
