A lawyer appearing before a judge at a virtual court case via Zoom appeared on screen as a cat - after not realising a filter was switched on.
Rod Ponton was 'feline' fine as he entered the zoom call held in Texas, but should've 'paws-ed' before switching his camera on.
Rod's child had used the computer before him and left a cat filter on. Fur-real!
Trying to avoid a 'cat-astrophe', Judge Roy Ferguson quickly gave Mr Ponton a heads-up that he had appeared on the chat as a white fluffy kitten.

  • "I'm not a cat" "Activate the human filter". The cat lawyer said to his assistant secretly.

  • I'm not American, I'm British. And the nearest I've got to Texas is Ames, Iowa. (I always quite liked that, because my name is Amy and my best friends call me Ames...) But whether Mr Ponton is a nice man or not, that seems to be under debate, he still made me laugh. So thanks for that.

  • In highschool dorm i was one of 4 guys getting ready for bed, and someone said or did something that set us off laughing, then someone farted from laughing to hard, which made us laugh harder, then someone started crying, so we laughed even harder. This video brought it all back.
