Julian Assange Embassy Cat
On a assignment for Sweden’s largest News Agency Tidningarnas Telegrambyrå (TT) I was at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London to cover the arrival of Swedish assistant prosecutor Ingrid Isgren to interview Julian Assange.
A bemused Embassy cat (said to be a present to Assange from his children and called James) first appeared at the Embassy window wearing a plain collar. After the arrival of the prosecutor it left the window and returned wearing a fancy collar & tie to the delight of the bored waiting press and his image was immediately beamed around the world by the major picture agencies.
The Embassy cat has its own Instagram & Twitter account: @embassycat #embassycat
