Virtual courtrooms of course have their drawbacks, but who could know one of them would see a serious lawyer explaining to a judge, “I’m not a cat?”
When Rod Ponton was unable to turn off a cute kitty Zoom filter in a Texas court hearing, it’s safe to say he got into a bit of a flap.
He promised the judge his legal assistant was working to rectify the issue. With his fluffy kitten’s eyes growing ever wider, more confused, and more expressive, Ponton then felt the need to let Judge Roy Ferguson know he wasn’t actually a feline. Ferguson replied kindly, “I can see that.”
Watch the video and let us know if you think the most amazing part of this Zoom call is: a) That no-one on the call laughed at the mishap b) That this pandemic-era video is seemingly impossible to watch just once.
With 20 million views online, if you do keep pressing play—know you’re likely not the only one.

Ponton is in on the laughs. He doesn’t seem to mind the attention at all, telling the New York Times, “If I can make the country chuckle for a moment in these difficult times they’re going through, I’m happy to let them do that at my expense.”
