Newscaster Rescues Stray After She Interrupts His Live Newscast

Anything can happen on live TV. Occasionally, we get to see some hilarious bloopers or some unexpected guests pop up. This news crew had no idea they were about to become a part of their own news story and make a new friend in the process.

This stray kitten isn't shy about being in the spotlight. On Monday morning, she interrupted a local news broadcast and became an instant celebrity.

Reporter Nima Shaffe was shooting a live broadcast for WXYZ-TV Channel 7 in Detroit when a kitten strolled right up to him. She must have had a lot to say about the subject he was reporting on, because microphones picked up her unprompted news commentary.

After wrapping up the broadcast, the Channel 7 news crew found the kitten hiding under their news van. She appeared to be a stray all by herself.

The crew enjoyed her company so much that they decided to make her the focus of an impromptu news story.

Later in the broadcast, Channel 7 anchors checked back in with Shaffe to find out how his new little friend was doing. By then, he'd named her Lucky Seven, after the news station.

Eventually, a police officer arrived to take the kitten to the Humane Society of Huron Valley. As you can tell, everyone who came in contact with Lucky Seven immediately fell in love with her.

"Lucky Seven is a super affectionate and friendly kitten," says a spokesperson from the Humane Society. "She was purring and 'making muffins' with her paws the entire time she was being examined by our veterinarian, and now is relaxing comfortably in our nursery, awaiting a foster to come get her."
