Can Your Pet See This Optical Illusion?

With the brand new season of Brain Games fast approaching, we’ve been giving a lot of thought to the tricks that our minds play on us. But, have you ever wondered if animals can experience the same illusions that the human mind falls for? YouTube user rasmusab certainly did. He decided to show his cat the rotating  snakes illusion (pictured above) to see what his cat would do. And what do you know? It looks like the cat is trying to trap the “moving parts” of the image under her paw.
