Unless you just came out of Internet exile you've likely seen the video clip of attorney Rod Ponton that's been shared millions of times after being uploaded to YouTube by Judge Roy Ferguson of the 394th Judicial District of Texas. 

During a zoom hearing, Ponton was transformed into a fluffy kitten by a filter while using his secretary's computer, an interview with the "Today" show revealed. He famously swore that he was not, in fact, a cat.

And in honor of the wholesome phenomenon, local T-shirt company Cincy Shirts has turned the viral sensation into a wearable work of art. 

Simple and sweet, the tee features a cropped rectangle of the cat face filter from the video and the words "I'm not a cat." beneath. 

On sale for $20, the shirt comes in unisex T-shirt, unisex longsleeve and youth T-shirt with a variety of sizes and your choice between grey or black.
