Is it a cat or is it a moose? It's the question of our time, and it's going viral once again. This mind-bending optical illusion did the rounds last year, and it seems peoples' minds are being bent and boggled in equal measure once more. Including mine – for I can, categorically, only see the cat. 

The illusion (below), shared on Twitter back in December, features a bunch of psychedelic curves. But take a step back and you might be able to see an animal – supposedly a moose or a cat. I'm not seeing the moose. I just want to see the moose. (Check out the best optical illusions for more brain-frying examples.)
