Video: Cat Is Seriously Confused By An Optical Illusion

We've shared a few mind-bending optical illusions before, and if you tried to figure out how they work, you know just how frustrating it can be.

So we don't know what Ryan Kotzin was thinking when he gave one of these tricky images to his cat. Kotzin put his pet's reaction to the image on YouTube, and it's safe to say the poor thing is a little overwhelmed by it.

Cats don't know much besides where to find their food dish, so maybe it's not surprising that it had trouble figuring out this illusion. Still, it's nice to know humans aren't the only animals who struggled to understand these.

We can't blame the poor kitty for being upset, even we couldn't wrap our heads around this illusion.

It's called Rotating Snakes, and it was designed by Japanese psychologist Akiyoshi Kitaoka. The circular "snakes" don't really move, but your brain thinks they do.

See for yourself:

The cat tried its best to figure out the tricky design before giving up and trying to eat it instead.

I think I'm about ready to throw in the towel too, the cat is more likely to understand this crazy picture than I am!
