A hearing at the 394th District Court in Brewster County, Texas, was briefly halted after one lawyer seemingly transformed into a saucer-eyed kitten. Video footage of the hearing, which apparently took place on Tuesday, showed the lawyer struggling to turn off the Zoom filter responsible for his whiskered appearance.
“Uh, we’re trying to,” he said, after Judge Roy Ferguson asked him to remove the filter. “I’m here live,” he added, as the cat’s eyes moved with his own.
However, the lawyer isn’t the first professional caught with his cat ears on. Back in 2019, the provincial government of Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa live-streamed a press conference on Facebook with a cat filter enabled. After a deluge of comments, the filter was disabled, with the mistake blamed on a social media volunteer.
