Cat upstages serious historian during TV interview

Jerzy paused only to remove the cat's tail from his face

A Polish professor doing a TV interview with a Dutch news outlet had the show stolen from him by his cat, which crawled atop his head and stayed there during the interview. He patiently brushed off the cat's tail off his face everytime Lisio thought his owner needed a brushing.

Targalski carried on with the interview without skipping a beat and even held Lisio's tail after it covered his eyes.

While the clip didn't make the final cut, journalist Rudy Bouma later tweeted out the memorable interview, commenting, "The Polish historian and political scientist Jerzy Targalski remained completely unruffled during our interview when this happened".

Unfortunately for the world, Targalski's interview was pre-taped so the footage of Lisio crawling up his arm never actually aired on TV.

British police say nerve agent victims handled material's container
Police are now hunting for that container, which they believe was likely linked to the attack on the Skripals four months earlier. A bus that Ms Sturgess and Mr Rowley used the night before they collapsed has also tested negative for the deadly agent.

It's reminiscent of the time North Korea expert Robert E Kelly was interrupted by his daughter and baby son during an interview with the BBC.

The cat, reportedly named Lisio, stole the limelight when he climbed Jerzy Targalski, sat on his shoulders and proceeded to sniff his ear.

The news is very bad, but this cat is very good.
