Cat-astrophic TV interview? This Polish Political Scientist Didn’t Think So
You know those parents who seem completely oblivious to the screaming child they’re carting around in a crowded supermarket? We have just found the cat owner equivalent.
A Polish political scientist and historian was appearing on Dutch TV to discuss the forced removal of Polish judge Malgorza Gersdorf by the ruling PiS party when his ginger cat decided to make a rather dramatic appearance.
The Polish historian & political scientist Jerzy Targalski remained completely unruffled during our interview when this happened????????????♂️ pic.twitter.com/4dLi16Pq1H— Rudy Bouma (@rudybouma) July 7, 2018
The cat, reportedly named Lisio, stole the limelight when he climbed Jerzy Targalski, sat on his shoulders and proceeded to sniff his ear.
Completely unfazed, Targalski calmly continued the interview and only acknowledged the feline’s bizarre presence to pull its tail away from his face.
A tweet showing the footage, shared by the NTR interviewer Rudy Bouma, has racked up more than 340,000 views from cat lovers and bemused netizens alike.

I'm in tears of laughter and joy- love how he holds the cat's tail to one side like it's a curtain blocking his view! ????????????— aisha ali-khan (@aak1880) July 8, 2018
He's great. I didn't hear a word because I was focused on his wonderful cat. Here's mine. pic.twitter.com/MY6WCYeRYL— Ljs Mccully (@LjsMccully) July 9, 2018
Targalski said Lisio is just one of his five cats and he hopes the sweet encounter will happen next time too. "The cat does not change, wherever I am, it always climbs on my shoulders, five times a day," Targalski told Dutch news outlet NOS. "It's his way of saying ‘good morning’ or ‘I love you’, I think."
