While WXYZ reporter Nima Shaffe was doing a live shot this morning, a tiny furry friend decided to crash the show. As much as the crew wanted to stay on the topic at hand, the kitten's meowing and running around the reporter made it impossible for them to continue without giving the kitten the spotlight she deserved.
Little surprise guest, Lucky 7!
