Anything can happen on live TV, whether it’s good, bad, or in this case, totally adorable!

Anchor Nima Shaff for Detroit’s WXYZ Channel 7 news station was filming a live broadcast when–meow–a tiny ginger kitten suddenly stole the show! (Good thing the whole crew was there, otherwise they wouldn’t have been able to get such great footage of the little fluffball.)

It seems that their original story was thrown out the window, as this kitty’s energetic cuteness became the latest “breaking news.”

Watch as Shaff introduced his newest interviewee to the other anchors at the news station:

The crew caught the miniature meower, giving it some TLC and the honorary name Lucky 7 (after Channel 7 News) while they contacted the Washtenaw County Sheriff. No one could resist this little furball!

Soon after, she was taken in by the Humane Society of Huron Valley, where they will care for her until she finds her forever home! We bet that this celebri-cat won’t have to wait long!
