The Japanese seem to love cats more than any other nation on the planet. So when a Japanese photographer, currently living inĀ Al-`Ain in the United Arab Emirates, took a picture of some cats wandering around the desert, he was shocked to see what looked like a hole perfectly carved into the side of its body.

The cat is simply colored with black and brown spots, but the optical illusion makes it look like you can see through the cat’s entire body. Not surprisingly, this optical illusion of a cat with a hole in it has gone viral over the Internet.
