CBC cameraman Sam Martin was covering a story on school buses in Alberta, Canada, when a cat suddenly leapt onto his back.

The friendly feline crawled onto Martin's head before leaping onto the tripod-mounted camera and perching atop it — creating great photo fodder for producer Terry Reith.

The news crew removed the cat from the camera and got back to work — but the kitty's interest was still piqued.
