Time for a furry trial? Texas lawyer Rod Ponton became an immediate sensation when he accidentally activated a filter that made him look like a cat. The result is an incredible 34 seconds that really captures the absurdity of life in the pandemic and redeems all cats for cursing us with the movie Cats.
"Mr. Ponton, I believe you have a filter turned on in your video settings," Judge Roy B. Ferguson said. "I'm here, I'm not a cat," Ponton responded.
"Cat Lawyer" began trending on Twitter, at the same time as former president Donald Trump's lawyers began mounting their defense of him at the Senate impeachment trial. The result was a timeline fixated on lawyers, both human and feline.
