Playful Cat or an Angry Critter?


Admit it, what did you see first when you opened this article? Was it a cat or…. an upside-down cat? Just kiddin’, are you able to see an angry beaver in a position where upside-down cat’s nose and mouth are supposed to be? An interesting take on “Young Lady or an Old Hag” illusion, if you ask me. Perhaps even more similar to this. Thanks goes to Shawn for sharing this with our community!

    looks like a dead cat both ways … not a nice picture .

    • diane

  • That was a great one!

  • Mary

    This one made me smile.

  • Cameron Hall

    Is this a dead cat? I rotated the image and it sure looks dead to me.

  • MissAnneThropee

    Now This is pretty damned creepy…I like it.(Don’t think Cats do that with their eyes…well, none of mine have ever…


  • Kimon

    Hahaha, I see it! Funny stuff

  • Jace

    I only saw the cat. Once you mentioned the beaver though bam! there he was staring me down! Angry little dude that guy.

  • Eh. This is just ok as far as illusions go for me. I had to scroll the page so that the cat’s eyes were off the screen, then back away from the screen a little bit, and than squint to blur the image.

    if you squint yes you can

  • Tralalala

    Now that, is a good one! At first I couldn’t see it and then I was like OMG! :P

  • Kyla

    Super illusion. That rat/beaver/whatever you call it, really looks mad!

  • Skye Simmons

    OMG!That is soooo funny!If I could I would show it to my friends but they are not here and they don’t come to my house I only see them at school.

  • momofask

    Sorry, don’t have a clue what you’re talking about. All I see is an upside down cat.

  • eric

    aha! what an angry little beaver

  • Care Bear

    All I see is an ugly, cross-eyed cat. But then I’m a dog person.

  • Dave

    I saw an upside down kitty but then, I just got threw playing with the cat before getting on line.

    I can see were the teeth become eyes though after looking for it (thanks to your clue)


    • Dave

      Opps, through.

  • MR K

    Playful Cat or Angry Critter has 3 faces. From cats eyes down to ears is the face of a cross-eyed critter.

  • Roosie

    That is very cool and must have an interesting story behind how you came across it…. Now that is one cute cat!! :p

  • Dwight Bryan

    I don’t see it…

  • Chenoa Zephyra

    Took me a while but then I saw it! Cute! :)

  • Josh


  • Drew

    Oh my gosh that illusion is crazy!!!!!

  • Don In Alabama

    Nope. just a cat.

  • some random guy you’l never meet

    personaly, I want to see an image that looks the same. no matter which way you look at it.

  • billyg420

    That’s pretty cool!

    If you cover the cats eye’s, you will see it.

  • Adam

    When I first saw it in my desktop gadget, it looked like a rat!

  • Seve

    Now I can see both… the cat and the angry bird :) or more concretely the angry duck. The cat’s tongue is the beak of the duck.

  • Cool! I must admit I didn’t see the second “face” at first.

  • Jeannette

    It looks like an angry gopher! Btw, that cat is soo cute!!

  • Phaeton99

    I suppose one can kinda see the “angry beaver” there, if one works at it, and if it wasn’t so obviously a cross-eyed cat — but Daggett it ain’t. ;)[img][/img]

    • Grace

      How do you get that pic

  • CorralesID

    molecat The most effectual mole Cat!
    Who’s intellectual close friends get to call him M.C. Providing it’s with dignity. …

  • R M Booker

    Poor critter has got the most dreadful crossed eyes! Assume someone is hanging a toy just over its head … not the best you’ve given us.

  • Louie

    Turn the photo upside down and you see one ugly-looking cat.

  • ez

    Is it a playful pussy or an angry beaver? A question all men find themselves asking at some point in their life. Sorry, couldn’t resist- it was too obvious to pass up.

  • What he had seen???

  • Sternococktail

    A post from South Africa this summer stated that there are no beavers in SA – but there are mole rats! A sort of optical illusion too, but of a more “adult” kind. The ugliest animal on earth – or just the masculine (opposite) counterpart to the ancient myth of “Vagina Dentata”? [img][/img]

  • Ninja kid

    from the top of the cats nose to the end of his chin upside down looks like an angry rabbit!

  • Cleo Rhea
