I think it's walking on the level and it's a clever floor design.

Ahah! That's what I was thinking, it's a smart optical illusion achieved by clever paint application and perspective shifting.

Sneaky beggars!

ITYM clever ceiling design. Its obvious from the way its tail is hanging up that the whole picture is upside down and it is in fact walking on the ceiling with the help of velcro on its paws and for the carpet. :wink:

I see by the hammer and nails you are hiding behind your back, that you have tested this theory :shock:

Escher's cat used to be even more confused.

Could the cat be walking backwards :?
There's no such thing as a tailwind.
It's either a headwind, or you're going well.

I'm purrfectly sure it has taken steps to descend this staircase. A meowvellous example of an optical illusion. OK. So it's a paw attempt at humour!

Clever camera angle.
