Cat With A Hole In Its Side Is The Trippiest Optical Illusion Ever

Could this cat be ... Swiss cheese?

Hole-y moly, this is a serious head-scratcher!

Twitter user @hanamomoact, who lives in the United Arab Emirates, recently shared photos of a cat that looks like it has a cylindrical cutout on its side. And now we're questioning everything we know: Is this a cat or is this Swiss cheese?

Check it out from another angle. It doesn't get any less trippy.

Don't fear! The feline is fine -- it's just our depth perception playing tricks on us. The spots on the cat, which match the color of the surrounding sand, are to blame for the deceptive image.

So rest easy, knowing that the kitty's OK and just has some funky fur.
