Twitter is Going Crazy Over the Optical Illusion on This Cat

    A Japanese photographer under the Twitter handle @hanamomoact has made the internet crack a smile with a cat, an optical illusion and a little imagination.

    The photographer, currently living in Al-`Ain in the United Arab Emirates, photographed a peculiar looking cat as it wandered the desert sands.

    With a little imagination, the cat appears to have an almost perfect “hole” on it’s side where the black is the shadow and the tan would be the sand on the other side.

    The hollow cat , whose name is “Okaachan”, frequently wanders the sands around his human’s home.

    The photographer, who has published a book of wildlife photography, is currently in the U.A.E. photographing desert animals.
