It really is a modern-day meow-story that has become the talk of the internet. When Judge Roy Ferguson opened up virtual proceedings of the 394th judicial district court in Texas on Zoom on February 9, he was not expecting to see lawyers & a kitten. The cute blue-eyed “cat” in the bottom right corner was actually county attorney Rod Ponton, covered by a filter. “Mr Ponton, I believe you have filter turned on in the video settings,” said the judge. Ponton said his assistant was trying to fix the settings. “I’m here live, I’m not a cat,” he said. “I can see that,” said the judge. Soon after, the zoom video made its way to Twitter.
