    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.

    4. Tim Winchester

    5. Phillip Green

      It was not a zoom filter, it had something to do with the Dell laptop camera software. Geez BBC, get your facts straight, I expect more from you :-)

    17. C T

      im not a cat, lies

    18. Anton Nym

      They could turn this into a TV show. Have the real lawyer do the voice for that same cat. And he can do a judge Judy type of show. Where normal people appear before the cat to have their legal disputes adjudicated. Call it Cat court

    19. X-ray_Channel

      Yeah, sure Morgana

    27. The Art

      How did the others not pee themselves haha :D

    28. ThatWinnipegerTanjeen

      That is exactly what a cat would say!!!

    29. Alex Kok

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

    30. Amy Quinn

      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.

    31. Grant Milburn

      Case continues: Prosecution: Now this security cam footage shows the accused robbing a bank... Cat (Defense): Video footage is not always what it seems...

    32. Caio Becker

      "Judge, I turned myself into a cat!"

    33. Rodrigo Tassara

      They should do a zoom trial meeting where the lawyer has a cat filter and the accused has a rat filter

    34. bubbasmith179

      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.
