Cat Totally Loses His Mind Over Optical Illusion

If you grew up in the ’90s, then you remember what a big deal those Magic Eye optical illusions were. From the frustration that came from not being able to find the sailboat to the pride of figuring out it was actually a dolphin, they were all the rage.

The kitty in this viral video may not have found a particular image, but his mind is still totally blown by what’s happening in front of him. Trust us, kitty, we remember the feeling.

In this hilarious, nostalgia-inducing two-minute clip, the fascinated feline clearly sees the moving images and goes after them like he would a toy. Or, by the end of the video, a snack.

It’s no surprise that this kitty is into the optical illusion, not only because of a cat’s inherently playful nature, but because they have amazing eyesight as well.

The footage will not only amuse you, it may just tempt you to stare at one of those tricky illusions yourself. We won’t judge if you bat at it, too.
