Polish academic Jerzy Targalski was being interviewed for the Dutch news program Nieuwsuur, on the serious topic of the removal of a Supreme Court Judge in Poland, when his cat decided to get some face time on camera by jumping on his shoulder.
Most people would be distracted by the cat, but Targalski stayed focused and continued his topic of conversation. During the interview, the cat wrapped its tail in front of Targalski’s face. The academic moved the tail away from his face and continued with the interview.

Cat lovers can be found in many towns.
We had a guy in town who would ride his bike with his cat wrapped around his neck. No one blinked an eye, our seaside town is like that. There are a lot of scientists here

It must have been hard not to laugh.
Kudos to the camera operator who managed not to laugh but also kept the cat in frame. 🙂

Cats are entertaining and make people laugh.
I'm in tears of laughter and joy- love how he holds the cat's tail to one side like it's a curtain blocking his view!
