Casual cat totally upstages interview with Latvian mayor

An online Q&A session with Nils Ušakovs, the mayor of Latvia’s capital, Riga, was all well and dandy until a fluffy feline made its debut and casually crashed the interview. Ušakovs is an animal lover and has two cats living at Riga’s Town Hall building, so sometimes this means things can get a bit unpredictable.  The cat got a little thirsty, strutted onto the scene, and boldly sipped out of the mayor’s cup like it owned the place.  You can see Ušakovs trying to stare his pet down so it’d get the hint. He tries to remain cool, but can’t keep a straight face after the adorable interruption.  Cats rule everything around us, even Latvian government work.
