A government meeting in Pakistan took a furry turn when a cat filter got in the way.

The provincial government of Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa used Facebook Live to carry the meeting.

Facebook offers a range of filters for its livestream, including a cat filter.

The unidentified operator of the livestream unintentionally placed the cat filter on the participants of meeting.

The Information Minister for the organization says the cat filter was a “human” error.”

No one was kitten around about the mistake.

In a statement, the group said, “All necessary actions have been taken to avoid such incidents in the future.”

The cat filter reportedly remained for most of the meeting before it was whiskered away.
