This was Amelia Love Clearheart's first attempt to film an online lesson since the beginning of the coronavirus lockdown. And things were going pretty well until her four-legged friend decided it was time for an impromptu snuggle.
Kitty grabs the spotlight
The attention-seeking kitty leapt up into her human's arms, bringing the lesson to an abrupt end. But Amelia definitely saw the funny side. With a big smile on her face, she said:
"She's never done that before! She really wants to be a part of the show."
Amelia then 'paws-ed' the lesson so she could have a quiet word with the fame-hungry fur-ball.
The 45-sec clip racked up over 700k views on Twitter, providing some much-needed relief for cat lovers struggling with lockdown fatigue.

Amelia has been teaching ballet for over 10 years. But it will be along time before she manages to top this class.
