Brain teaser: Can you spot the cat hiding in this optical illusion?

Not everybody was persuaded. And they'd be excused for believing that this picture was just a joke.

Thousands of individuals spent hours examining the image, but no cats could be found.

See? The two branches that are above the animal's head form a cat-like shape that seems to be descending the tree.

That dog (or fox? ), it seems, is about to get a big surprise!

However, a few people who chose the "cat" weren't really impressed. According to some, it resembles a rat more.

Others described it as a blob that eerily resembled an animal.

One individual offered their own justification for the artist's decision to conceal the cat in the tree.

I would also conceal the cat in the trees if I was that terrible at painting animals.
