“He wakes me up every morning meowing to death because he wants to go out, and then when I open the door he stays put, undecided, and then glares at me when I put him out,” Loiseau said, according to Le Journal du Dimanche.
The politician’s comment, which may have been tongue-in-cheek, comes days after British lawmakers in Parliament voted in favor of a delay in the country’s departure from the European Union, just weeks before the U.K. was due to leave.
Lawmakers voted 412-202 in favor of the motion, which urges Prime Minister Theresa May’s government to go to Europe and request an extension past the March 29 deadline. In 2016, the U.K. voted to leave the European Union.
Loiseau is considered one of the stars of French President Emmanuel Macron’s party. She is slated to run against far-right leader Marine Le Pen.
