The tweet shared on July 14, was accompanied by a caption reading, “’Rocco, put your tail down’ - Another classic entry for the Parliamentary cats on Zoom folder, this time @MrJohnNicolson at DCMS committee:”. A fantastic entry it indeed was.
At the beginning of the recording, the Scottish lawmaker is heard mentioning the BBC. Just then, a white-and-tangerine coloured tail enters the frame. Nicolson, noticing the unexpected guest, says, “I apologize for my cat’s tail”. He tries to carry on with the critical discussion at hand but fails to do so as Rojo’s tail continues to capture onlookers’ attention. Finally, Nicolson pats the cat on the back, while saying, “Rojo, put your tail down”.

Here is how tweeple reacted to this Parliamentary cat and hooman duo. One person said, “Good old Rocco”. To this, Nicolson responded by saying, “He wants me to point out it’s Rojo”.
Another individual wrote, “I’ve heard of cats doing ‘zoomies’, but this is a whole other level of brilliant feline fiendishness”. Yes, Rojo just gave ‘zoomies’ a whole new meaning.
“We need more Rojos in this world,” read one comment on the thread. Now that is a statement we agree with.
