Reporters cats fight behind her on live TV

Viewers have reacted with delight to a live TV broadcast that was interrupted by two fighting cats.

Last week (15 May), Filipino broadcaster Doris Bigornia was speaking via telephone to a guest on her news show, when her pets began fighting behind her.

Bigornia, who has been broadcasting from her home due to the coronavirus pandemic, could be seen attempting to mitigate the interruption while continuing to hold a conversation with her guest.

Bigornia’s daughter Nikki provided context to the scrape by sharing the footage on social media, along with the caption: “MY CATS HAVE NO CHILL”.

She later uploaded a second video of the cats, named Bella Luna and Nala, licking one another having made amends.

The footage has gone viral in recent days, with cat lovers determining Bigornia’s TV broadcast among the best of the quarantine era.

“Stand down, other journalists,” tweeted one viewer. “She wins reporting from home. This is what Lockdown TV was made for.”

“My cat-deprived self is still not over these cats fighting on live TV,” wrote another viewer.

Another added: “Good news for those worried about the lack of sport on TV: live cat wrestling is now a thing.”

Bigornia and her daughter have two other pet cats, named Edward and Simba, indicating that they are fans of both Twilight and The Lion King.
