Can It Rain Cats Indoors?

Germany’s leading meteorologist Jorg Kachelmann demonstrated incredible presence of mind recently when a tabby cat who had wandered into the studio approached him and began rubbing up against him while he was delivering the weather forecast. Unfazed, he picked up and cuddled the cat without missing a beat. After watching the footage carefully, it even appears that the cat is trying to lick his face (Is he the next Herr schmackhafte Gesicht?)

The cat, whose name is Lupin, belongs to a staffer who was out of town. No one knows how Lupin got into the studio. Kachelmann said, “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 am pretty sure Kachelmann is a Cat Guy.
