These days, it seems like the only optical illusions people care about are the ones involving the color of a dress, a photo of strawberries, or a girl with seemingly missing legs. Cats, on the other hand, seem to find old-fashioned optical trickery -- the kind with moving dots and lines -- much more interesting. Well, at least one cat does.
In a new video that emerged on Reddit and YouTube over the weekend, a curious gray cat appears to fall for a printout of the famous "rotating snakes" optical illusion, which tricks the viewer -- in this case, a cat -- into seeing rotating snake-like shapes. Watch as the cat stares intently at the illusion before pouncing and pawing repeatedly at certain points on the paper, but to no avail.
