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.

    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 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.
