The Lost Cat

Yesterday, I offered a small puzzle for the cat lovers (of which I know there are several) in the community. I thought it was going to be pretty easy. Find the kitty. Or, don’t. Well, some of you found the cat, but I’m not sure that you found the right cat. Some of you did not find a cat. Some of you found an elephant. Since I don’t normally post on Tuesdays, I’m just going to give you the answer that I have, and I’ll give you a chance to correct me if I’m wrong.

Below is the original photo.

Can you find the cat?

Here is what I think people are suggesting is the elephant.

Is this the elephant?

Here is a large cat that some people seem to see.

Here is the cat I was talking about.

If you don’t see it, here’s another image.

Ears, eyes, nose, white cheeks

Ears, eyes, nose, white cheeks

Here it is blown up. If I enlarge it any farther, you can no longer see the cat.

See the kitty now?

Finally, here is a crude interactive feature on No Facilities. If you see something I didn’t, please list the coordinates in a comment. As Linda G. Hill would say, “bonus points if you find a new animal. She would also say “have fun!”

What do you see, and where do you see it. My cat is in the center of C3

Husband, father, woodworker, cyclist, photographer, geek - oh wait, I’m writing this like I only have 140 characters. I am all those things, and more, and all of these passions present me with opportunities to observe, and think about things that I can’t write about in other places. I have started this blog to catch the stuff that falls out, overflows and just plain doesn’t fit the other containers in my life.

    My eyesight must be worse than I thought – even when you’ve marked it out for me, I still don’t see a cat! It’s a lovely rock, though… :-)

    Believe it or not, Dan, but I’m headed to the eye doctor today for an appointment, so I am probably way off here, but in C-3 I’m seeing a snake with his mouth open.

    Sorry but cats don’t have pointy heads… ;-)
    However, I do see a bunny face (c3) with floppy ear (c2) – or without the floppy ear it could be a tortoise poking his head out of this shell. *Holds out hand palm up*: Mucho bonus points, please :-D

    I had a feeling an explainer post was coming after yesterday’s confusion! My guess is that most people were looking for the BODY of a cat, not the face. I think they also expected it to be a bit larger. In any event, you seem to have uncovered a small zoo on your hike …

    Zoom in on A3. It looks like an orange and white tabby cat, taking a nap in the leaves. It appears its head may not be visible.

    I want to see the cat, but I cannot. I only see an elephant. I have my new glasses on, too, man.

    Anyway, that’s good you can see it. Imagination is important yo.

    Wow! Ok I see a black cat peering out from the rock: Left shadow, two eyes at the top tilted to one side, body almost upright with paws tucked in. The head is where C2 and C3 meet.

  10. What you see as a cat, I see as a bunny with a really long, floppy ear to the left side of the picture (or what would be the right side of the bunny’s head if you were standing behind it).

  11. I’m with Norm, and see the tortoise poking its head out of its shell. I see the cat as well, so no fighting guys. 😀

      Ah, the peacemaker among us – Thanks Hugh. I had much more agreement on the International Symbol for mermaids in yesterdays post. Maybe I should stick to writing and leave artistic interpretation to others. Thanks!

    Dan, I see your rock cat in C-3. I also see a lizard’s face in D-3. Love to find “things” in clouds too! I don’t need any points though! This was a fun post! 💛 Christine Elizabeth

  17. I saw the sharp jaw of the larger cat, as well. I see the small cat now. I was thinking in that general area at first but was unsure. Fun game, Dan.

  23. LOL! What fun! I don’t see the cat you saw, or the elephant, but I do see the big cat face, and also in that area I see a bear! C3. :)

    Yes, I’m still getting through older posts and emails. SIGH! I’ve only 540 to go to be all caught up!
