Lawyer uses Zoom filter by mistake - 'I'm not a cat' - BBC News

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.
