PETALING JAYA - Kiky, one of Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak's cats, is back on social media just in time for her owner's birthday on Monday (July 23).
"Waiting for papa to come down for breakfast, want to peluk manja (pamper with a hug), today is the birthday of papa @najib_razak!" read the post, which was made around 8am.
The admin of the account had also tagged the former prime minister on the post, which has garnered nearly 2,000 likes and over 180 comments at time of writing.
The ginger Persian cat, which was formerly known as @kikyseriperdana on Instagram, had last appeared on the social media platform in a May 8 post, right before the polls.
In that "Kiky Pilih Biru" (Kiki Chooses Blue) post, which included Kiky resting on top of the Barisan Nasional logo, the caption read: "This blue is elegant, it makes Kiky look even cuter and fluffier! That's why #KikyPilihBiru #KikyPilihPapa!".
Pakatan Harapan swept into power in GE14, ending the more than 60-year rule by Barisan.
In the time since, Kiky's Instagram account has undergone a name change to @kikytamanduta, which may be a reference to the cat's current residence at Jalan Langgak Duta, Kuala Lumpur.
A search for the original @kikyseriperdana handle currently shows a locked private account.
