first_imgNaturally, someone even started a new Twitter account for the cat. One of its first tweets plays off one of the oldest cat memes, writing, “I can haz extradition?”Originally published 10:03 a.m. PT.  The cat appears to have been just a kitten when Assange took it in, based on Instagram and Twitter photos. Its accounts began in May 2016. No new Instagram photos have been posted since March 2017, although the Twitter account was still retweeting in March 2018. During its time in the embassy, the cat played with celebrity visitors, including filmmaker Michael Moore, and did regular cat things, like hiding in a hat or slopping milk on the floor.

In a 2017 profile in The New Yorker, Assange called it both “Michi” and “Cat-stro.” Online, many called it James. And some on the internet just had fun with the idea of a cat companion living in exile. “There’s ZERO chance Assange’s cat isn’t the head of WikiLeaks,” wrote one Twitter user. “Julian is the fall guy. This was always the plan.” .@DailyCaller researchers @amber_athey and @AryssaDamron with the scoop: There’s ZERO chance Assange’s cat isn’t the head of Wiki Leaks. Julian is the fall guy.
