This picture of a crow has been doing the rounds on social media for a bizarre reason.

Because it’s a cat.

The ‘beak’ is actually the cat’s ear. The other eye, which is much harder to see, is being confused as the crow’s neck.

The illusion has caused a stack of people to do a double-take, here’s some comments from Reddit:

“Damn kitty you got me there.”

“Prey and hunter in one.”


“Took me a second… took me about 30 seconds.”

“Cat is going out as a bird for Halloween.”

“If you lose it, squint, it comes right on back!”

“Does kitty want a cracker?”

“X-Files theme song plays in the background”

“I’m tripping what the”


“Genius way to befriend your next meal”
