These Three West Michigan Cats Have Gone Viral On Live TV

The most recent case of cats gone wild on live West Michigan TV involves WZZM 13 Metrologist Blake Hansen and two random cats.

In the video, Blake is on the WZZM 13 weather deck talking about a winter storm system heading our way.

As he's going over the forecast and what to expect, a cat runs at him causing him to be startled, then another cat shows up.

The next viral video involves a West Michigan legend and treasure, Bill Steffen

Bill Steffen is the chief meteorologist emeritus for WOOD-TV. 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Bill Steffen was broadcasting live from his "man cave" when his two cats got a little feisty during the forecast.

And the final viral is a throwback to 2012.

Former Fox 17 Reporter Nicole Didonato was doing a live shoot in front of Harmony Brewing Coming in Grand Rapids when she got quite the surprise.

A stray cat that she saw walking around a few minutes before she was live on TV decided to get a little camera time for themselves.

The cat that was off-screen at first, jumped on her back and crawled up onto her shoulder.

Nicole was a pro and kept on doing her thing as the cat enjoyed its 15 seconds of fame.

You don't have to worry about these cats but I would keep my distance from these dangerous animals found in Michigan

You may have even seen a few of these in your home or around the state.
