Cat Dance Illusion
Category: Double Meanings | Added: September 18, 2009 | 37 comments
Special thanks to artist Patrick Trotter for sending in to us this picture he's painted of a black cat. Which way is the cat facing ? It depends on how you look at it, like many other "double meaning" illusions the cat can appear to be facing away from you or towards you. If you have trouble seeing it the other way try gazing at the image for a while - you should see the cat suddenly switch directions, see if you can get the image to switch back and forth.

wow...this is good! I was convinced at first glance that the cat is facing away from me, and I'm seeing it's behind. But now it looks like it's facing towards me. Very good :)

This is good but don't think it's great. It took about 20 secs to finally get it n it isn't fantastic.
