Watch: Cat steals the show during live orchestral concert

A stray cat wandered onto the stage of a live orchestral concert in Istanbul, Turkey… and ended up stealing the show.

The cat – clearly a lover of classical music – eventually bagged the best seat in the house at the front of the stage… but not before getting a nice pat from one of the cellists (eliciting laughter from the audience) and even joining the conductor on the podium at one point. One of the violinists tries to get the cat off the stage… but the feline was having none of it.

Far from a cat-astrophe, the cat seemed like a purr-fect addition to the musicians in the end!
