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.

Let me tell you, I respect the hell out of this guy for taking this now infamous moment and allowing himself to be the punchline of many jokes. Just rolling with the punches. If I ever get into legal trouble deep in the heart of Texas, I'm calling this guy first!!

But how'd you come up with the whole "I'm not a cat"? That's what made it a classic, cos that's exactly what a cat masquerading as a human would say.

"I'm not a cat" yes, you are. Just because you "identify" as a human, that doesn't change who you are, because facts don't care about your feelings. This leftist agenda disgusts me, it has gone way too far.

Never hire a cat lawyer; a dog will always work pro-bone-o. I am so sorry...

"It just happened after I left the waiting room" why can't he just admit that he was playing with filters while in the waiting room and then panicked and forgot how to close them. I wouldn't be ashamed

It was not a zoom filter, it had something to do with the Dell laptop camera software. Geez BBC, get your facts straight, I expect more from you :-)

They could turn this into a TV show. Have the real lawyer do the voice for that same cat. And he can do a judge Judy type of show. Where normal people appear before the cat to have their legal disputes adjudicated. Call it Cat court

"I'm not a cat" "Activate the human filter". The cat lawyer said to his assistant secretly.

I'm not American, I'm British. And the nearest I've got to Texas is Ames, Iowa. (I always quite liked that, because my name is Amy and my best friends call me Ames...) But whether Mr Ponton is a nice man or not, that seems to be under debate, he still made me laugh. So thanks for that.

In highschool dorm i was one of 4 guys getting ready for bed, and someone said or did something that set us off laughing, then someone farted from laughing to hard, which made us laugh harder, then someone started crying, so we laughed even harder. This video brought it all back.
