Stray cat becomes accidental Turkish TV star

Friday October 21st 2016

A stray cat accidentally became a TV star after it interrupted a live news broadcast.

The adorable cat jumped up onto the presenter's desk after wandering into the studio in Turkey during the show "Good Morning Denizli," which is live on local station DRT.

Presenter Kudret Çelebioğlu made reference to the cat, who sat on his laptop, saying there was a "surprise guest" in the studio, before calmly continuing with the show.

He then went on to say that as the weather has turned colder, stray cats are getting hungry.

He urged people to feed and look after the stray cats on the street.

The cat has now been adopted by one of the station's staff and has been named Hüsnü.

Hüsnü's appearance dominated Turkish Twitter as posts about the feline were retweeted up to 1,000 times.

Thousands of stray cats live in Istanbul's streets, and residents often place boxes with food and water on street corners for them.
