The Ecuadorian embassy has told Julian Assange to properly care for his cat. I interpret this to mean that he is not caring for his cat properly which in turn probably means the cat litter is in a terrible state. In addition Assange is known to not be the cleanest person on the planet.
I read somewhere that when he eats with his fingers he wipes his hands on his trousers. The embassy also told him to keep his bathroom clean. It appears that Assange’s propensity for a lack of personal hygiene and cleanliness extends to his bathroom.
Assange received his orders in a nine-page memo leaked by an Ecuadorian website. You can see it by clicking on this link. It lists a series of demands to the WikiLeaks founder. He’s been living at the embassy since 2012 which is next to Harrods.
For many months he has been barred from using the Internet but that’s been rescinded as I understand it. He was barred because he failed to keep a promise not to involve himself in matters of state of other countries.
Staff at the embassy have been complaining about Mr Assange’s extended stay. They complained about his reluctance to shower regularly. He must now attend quarterly medical examinations at his own cost and also pay for his living expenses.
If he doesn’t stick to the agreement he may be kicked out of the embassy. Assange initially imprisoned himself in the embassy to avoid extradition to Sweden for alleged sex crimes which he denies. He believes that he will be extradited to America to stand trial there. He fears a very long sentence in America.
You can imagine what it must be like in a small embassy, which is a flat, if the cat litter is not maintained properly. To be honest I feel sorry for the cat who is confined to an apartment in London and looked after by a person who I’m not actually convinced is that good at looking after a domestic cat.
The cat was a gift by his children it was claimed but apparently it’s a lie. The tabby-and-white cat was ten-weeks-of-age at the time but I am not sure he wanted to look after a cat.
Failure to comply
Failure to comply will result in (a) cat being removed and (b) Assange being removed from the embassy!
