In a statement posted on Twitter, the ruling party's social media team wrote after investigating it determined "human error" by a hardworking volunteer caused the mistake.

A political party in Pakistan is suffering the indignity of internet memedom after someone left the cat filter switched on while live-streaming a press conference.

A briefing by Shaukat Yousafzai, a regional minister in northwest Pakistan, was broadcast on his Tehreek-e-Insaf party's official Facebook page Friday, in an attempt to keep constituents in the loop about local issues.

Comments started pouring in as Facebook users noticed pink cat-like ears and whiskers had appeared on the heads of the minister and two accompanying officials as they took part in the event in the country's north west.

But, as the social media team of Pakistan's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa regional government discovered, you have to do not forget to turn it off-especially if you are live-streaming a press briefing by the information minister. "He later said it was a "mistake" that should not be taken 'so seriously'".
