Security for the G20 summit is being questioned after a few cats found a way to get in and take the stage at the big event.
Reporters and cameramen captured video of the strays prancing across the stage as the journalists waited on speakers President Obama and President Putin to speak.
Some joked that the kitties had been brought as extra security.
BBC journalist Duncan Stone tweeted that, “Obama and Putin [had been] upstaged by three cats.”
Turkey, where the summit was held, is known for its large population of stray cats, but it's unclear how the felines slipped past security.
