Pet cat tries to distract Buddhist monk in prayer

This is the adorable moment a kitten watches attentively as a Buddhist monk prays during a religious ceremony in southern Thailand.

The fluffy animal had its eyes locked on the monk’s face, hoping to get his attention at a temple in Nakhon Si Thammarat province on December 18.

Worshipper Rain Ny attended the ceremony but was soon distracted after seeing the adorable cat staring straight up at the monk’s face.

She said: “I tried not to get distracted. I wonder how that monk controlled himself not petting the best cat. It was so adorable.”
