Watch This Cat Lose Its Mind After Faced With An Optical Illusion

Apparently what cannot be understood must be destroyed.

What could be more entertaining than a cat and a laser pointer? Apparently, a cat and some cleverly applied ink on paper.

A curious cat was filmed absolutely losing its mind after catching sight of an optical illusion, prompting it to declare war on the mesmerizing circles.

The frustrated cat resorted to clawing and tearing the paper with its teeth after laying eyes on the “rotating snakes” design, which appears to move on its own.

The cat resorted to biting and tearing the paper after watching the mind-bending illusions.

The cat’s fixation proved to be equally entertaining for humans, as the two-minute video collected more than one million views within two days of its upload.

This is not the first cat to fall victim to such mind-bending illusions, however. A quick search on YouTube reveals a number of other cats that have been hypnotized by the spinning circles, causing them to pounce and swat at the designs.
