These Three Cats Casually Strolled Onto The Stage At The G-20 Summit (Video)

Three cats briefly took over the G-20 summit this weekend, brazenly walking on the same stage as world leaders — including Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin — in Antalya, Turkey.

While the leaders were there to discuss more solemn topics, including the Paris terrorist attacks and how each country would address ISIS, the cats were a welcome moment of levity.

Antalya is in the south of the country, but up north in Istanbul, cats run the streets.

In fact, The Wall Street Journal suggested Istanbul be renamed “Catstantinople” because of how prevalent and beloved cats are in the city.

So there's our definitive proof: Cats have taken over the world.
