This is some late-breaking meowing news.

Earlier this week, Nima Shaffe, a reporter for Detroit's WXYZ, was getting set to do a live shot when a kitten burst on the scene, putting the story Shaffe was about to discuss on the back burner.

Shaffe named the kitty "Seven" and announced he would be the station's new mascot, although probably not for long, since the Michigan Humane Society was summoned to take the lil' critter, possibly in an attempt to put him up for adoption.

As Schaffe mentioned, Seven was a hit on social media, too. That'll happen when you're a sweet little kitten. Now, if we can only find out what Shaffe was supposed to be reporting on in the first place.
