When Judge Roy Ferguson opened up a virtual proceedings of the 394th Judicial District Court in Texas on Zoom on Tuesday he probably didn’t expect to see a cat.
The cute blue-eyed “cat” in the bottom right corner was actually county lawyer 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.
