Paws for thought

Ever the professional, Seven IM’s Justin Urquhart Stewart was conducting a radio interview from his home studio and wound up counting his blessings that it was not a live TV recording.

Urquhart Stewart, a fan of the moggy, had an unexpected visitor in the form of his cat, who decided Justin’s work was interfering with the amount of attention he was receiving so decided to hog the mic. The feline friend got himself so comfortable wrapped around the microphone stand that he started purring, which Justin decided sounded decidedly like he was, well, rather gassy, shall we say. But he coped with it, as composed as ever. Luckily, there are no cats to distract us from filming MMTV in the office – we are nowhere near that professional.
