(SPOT.ph) Ah, the SONA red carpet. Yes, we're all aware that the State of the Nation isn't a fashion show, but that doesn't make the so-called red carpet any less of a space ripe for making a statement. Take the all-important tradition of wearing your advocacies front and center, making the most of being in the same room as the country's biggest decision-makers or heck, we can't lie, we've also got our eyes peeled to see who wears the most gauche, we mean, glamorous takes on Filipino dress, too.

With President Bongbong Marcos making his first national address today, July 25, that red-carpet space has become all the more opportune for making statements. And it seems it isn't just us humans who have something to say. The Internet had a bit of a light moment when of all creatures, a stray cat walked in and decided to be seen. Catwalk, anyone?
The little mingming was spotted at the Batasang Pambansa strutting its stuff on the carpet ahead of all the other guests. Yes, in true cat nature, it had the audacity to be first. Based on media snapshots and clips, it was chilling alongside press waiting for the arrivals. Yawns and kitty licks included. Needless to say, Twitter responded appropriately. From references to a hit indie game to subtle burns, check out this fun spot below, plus a recap of this historical address, as recorded on Twitter.
