TV expert's cat jumps on head during interview

Polish historian & political scientist Jerzy Targalski was taking part in a very serious interview on political tension in his home country with Dutch television channel Nieuwsuur when his cat chose to take some of the limelight.

The only recognition of the cat from Targalski is when he moves the cat's tail away from his face twice during the interview. The only time he seemed to acknowledge the cat was there was when he had to brush the feline's tail out of his eyes.

The historian and political scientist was discussing the Polish Supreme Court on the news program "Nieuwsuur", when his cat, without warning, climbed up on Targalski's shoulders, curled himself around the academic's head and remained there.

Upon exiting the store, she climbed in a black Nissan - the vehicle was open and the key's were in the ignition - and drove home. She also said there were papers in the glove compartment and a dirty ashtray, but it still wasn't enough to tip her off.


As Targalski talked about Polish history, Lisio climbed up his arm and onto his head and shoulders.

The ginger cat, called Lisio, made a decision to climb his owner's shoulders and purr up against him affectionately, waving his tail in his face. But the moment was so good that "Niewsuur" reporter Rudy Bouma tweeted the clip to show the world Targalski's expert interviewing skills.
