Cats of all kinds can be adorable (except those times when they’re trying to claw your face off when you’re trying to give them a bath). That’s why the latest hoax photograph, purportedly from National Geographic, looks so interesting that shows a cat snuggling with a lion.

The truth is that the picture is a National Geographic image, but the house cat was not part of the original photograph. The cat had been doctored in as part of a Whiskas ad campaign, minus the National Geographic logo. The Whiskers ad is meant to show cats in humorous poses around Africa.

So don’t believe everything you see. Just believe in your cat whether it’s big or small. To see more pictures of cats supposedly running around in the wilds of Africa, click here.
