Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, was arrested by British police and his future is uncertain, but the attention paid to his embassy cat is no less than to himself.
Recently, Jamie Machand, the British ambassador to Ecuador (JaimeMarchan), told the British media Tucao Assanges extraordinary move in the embassy, not only referring to his excretion on the wall, but also suspected that he used cats to watch the embassy.
According to the Daily Mail of April 13, Marchand said: Cats can walk in every room, and we suspect that they may carry a device to monitor us.
Suspect a cat watching the embassy? This remark by the Ambassador of Ecuador quickly aroused public ridicule and further evolved into an attack on President Moreno.
Kristin Hrafnsson, editor-in-chief of WikiLeaks, wrote on Twitter, Its foolish to tell the Daily Mail that Assange may have trained embassy cats to spy. At the same time, he pointed out that Moreno and his team had spread the news about Assanges insanity frantically in order to cover up the shameful deportation.

Netizens who support Assange believe that the abnormal person is Moreno:
Spy Cat? It is clear that Moreno is mentally unstable and unsuitable for any position. Ecuadorian people should ask for a psychological assessment of him.
The President of Ecuador seems to need to examine his head, his conscience and his bank account! Did the cat eavesdrop on his phone, too?
He probably watched too many spy movies.
However, it has also been pointed out that using cats for espionage seems not impossible. The CIA has done it and WikiLeaks has mentioned this:
When WikiLeaks tweeted that the CIA planned to train cat spies, I thought they had reason to doubt it.
In the 1960s, during the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union, the CIA came up with a cat eavesdropping program, in which microphones were implanted in the cats ears, transmitters and batteries were implanted near the neck, antennas were installed along the cats spine, and cats were trained and commanded. In this way, cats can sneak into each others agencies to get information.
The idea seems good, but the CIA soon found out in the test that the eavesdropping cats would leave their jobs when they were hungry and that the recorded sounds were either birdsong or cat-dog barking, but it was very difficult to record human voices.
After years of hard work and more than $15 million in investment, the first eavesdropping cat was finally put into action. The CIA intended to let it sneak into a Soviet institution in Washington for eavesdropping, but just as the cat was about to cross the road and dive into the enemy camp, it was hit and killed by a passing taxi. In 1967, the project was cancelled.
Where is Assanges cat?
Assange has sought refuge at the Ecuadorian Embassy since 2012. During this period, he kept a cat named Michi, which means cat in Ecuadorian dialect. In May 2016, he opened Embassy Cat Twitter and Instagram accounts for him, uploaded photos of cats and posted them in the cats tone, with 32,000 fans and 7,000 fans, respectively. u3002

However, these two social media accounts have not been updated since March 2018 and March 2017. At present, the question that more netizens are concerned about is, Embassy Cat how is it now?
Russian Satellite News Agency recently asked the Embassy of Ecuador in the UK, the answer is that the cat has not been in the embassy since September last year. An embassy official said, We are not a pet shop here. We cant keep pets here.
Hanna Jonasson, a member of Assanges team of lawyers, said that after the Ecuadorian embassy threatened to send the kitten to a pet shelter, Assange asked the lawyer to take the cat to a safe place. Now the cat has been adopted by Assanges family.
Ecuador has long complained about Assanges pets and asked him to pay for cat cleaning. In addition, according to the description of the British media by Ecuadors ambassador to Britain, there are also some extraordinary acts of Assange in the Embassy that make Ecuador unacceptable.
Ma Shang said that when Assange wanted to make people uncomfortable, he would put his excrement on the wall or put it in his underwear. We have to remind him to wash the toilet and dishes, and he always keeps the stove on.
Ma Shang also Tucao A-Sun Qi almost controlled the entire embassy, he said that although he could not be outside activities, but in the indoor wooden corridor to play skateboards, creating chaos. He played the music very loudly because he thought there would be no one to listen to, added Marchand.
