Without fail, anytime my husband starts a Zoom session to teach his students a lesson in mathematics, our senior cat loves to sing the song of her people for all the students to hear. What follows is usually the sound of my slippers scuffing in the hall which trails into the abrupt and overly-dramatic halt of her chorus mid-meow as I gather her up, or as Queen kitty would term it, accost her. And this common scenario isn’t just happening in my house.

Oh no, cats across the world have figured out virtual meetings are the purrfect opportunity to make their voices heard. Basically, Zoom and Google Meetings has given cats a platform to further their plans for world domination. And they have no shame interrupting humans to get it done.

Lucky for us, social media serves as a great support group for cat parents who struggle with cats and Zoom. Thanks to all the posts of virtual meeting interruption by kitty angels, at least us felines enthusiasts can laugh collectively at the struggle of life with cats!

Enjoy this gallery of cats zoom-bombing their parents and laugh because you understand their pain!
