  1. Weatherman interrupted by cat during forecast

    Germany's star weatherman was forced to share the limelight with a pet cat when it wandered onto set in the middle of a prime-time broadcast.

    Joerg Kachelmann was just about to start telling the Fatherland to wrap-up warm on the coldest night of the year when a shadow with an extended tail passed by the bottom of the screen.
    Purring for attention and obviously not going to give up easily, Herr Kachelmann was left with little option but to scoop up Lupin into his arms and give the broadcast cradling his purring pal.
    Kachelmann had just started his two-minute forecast after the news on Tuesday when the cat appeared.
    After nibbling at Kachelmann's beard, Lupin pointed his paw at the weather map where the temperatures were sliding the most.
    "I don't know how he got into the studio," Kachelmann said, adding Lupin belonged to a weather studio colleague who was out of town.
    "I noticed him when he rubbed against my leg and thought people might wonder what was happening. I figured it would be easier to control the cat by picking him up. Cats get annoyed if they feel ignored. So I made sure he didn't feel ignored.
    "I know the English have a saying about raining cats and dogs but unfortunately I couldn't make that joke in Germany."
  2. I love this video. The cat was a stray and nobody in the neighborhood wanted it. The TV station took it in and now it lives there.
  3. That is so awesome of the station to take it in. I love these kind of stories.
  4. What a cute story
  5. Aww, that is great :biggrin:
  6. haha that's cute :biggrin:
  7. love it!:heart:

    what did he say about the cats at night in the last sentence? My German is rusty:Push:
  8. He says something like he hopes that all cats have a warm fur coat on because it will be freezing cold. ;)
  9. lol! I love this. I love how the guy just picks him up and cuddles with him while carrying on.

    The station really took in the cat? How cool!

  10. Awwwwwe! Good to hear it has a home now!

  11. thank you!:heart: wishing a very warm fluffy fur to all the kitties out there:heart:
  12. LOL although I can't understand what he is saying, it is so cute how he cuddles the cat and start scratching its head.
  13. I love how the cat starts giving him kitty kisses :heart:
  14. great story
