A Texas lawyer’s technical snafu during a court hearing conducted on Zoom has led to a lot of catty comments.

That’s because a cat filter covered attorney Rod Ponton’s face during the proceedings, leading to an amusing exchange with Judge Roy B. Ferguson.

“Mr. Ponton, I believe you have a filter turned on in your video settings,” Ferguson perceptively noted.

 “Can you hear me, judge?” Ponton replied.

“I can hear you. I think it’s a filter,” the judge responded.

Ponton agreed and explained the situation: “I don’t know how to remove it. I’ve got my assistant here and she’s trying to remove it but, uh … I’m prepared to go forward with it.”

He then added, “I’m here live. I’m not a cat.”

Ponton later told Vice the mistake happened while using his secretary’s computer, which had the filter on.
