Assange, who has been holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since 2012, has been given an ultimatum by the country. According to the BBC, the Wikileaks founder has been given a set of rules urging him to take better care of his pet cat or else it will be handed to a refuge.

The cat, which the BBC reports often sits at the embassy window staring out, was a gift to Assange from his children.

Ecuador urged Mr. Assange to look after its “well-being, food and hygiene” and also to pay more attention to keeping his own bathroom clean.
