Purrfectly confusing! Moment a ‘dog’s head’ on a roof turns out to be CAT with very unusual markings

  • The strange illusion was spotted by Carolyn Muylaert, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
  • At first, it appeared to be a dog’s head on a roof before it turned out to be a cat 
  • Cat’s black tail and two markings on its back looked like the dog’s nose and eyes 


A family was given a shock when they thought they had discovered the head of a lifeless dog on top of a roof.

But when Carolyn Muylaert, from Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, spotted the strange illusion on a nearby rooftop, she started filming and was surprised to find it was in fact a cat with some unusual markings.

The confusing video appeared to show a dog’s head staring at Carolyn, her girlfriend and her girlfriend’s mother, with its body missing.

But after Carolyn made a noise to disturb the animal, it stood up to reveal it was actually a white cat with black markings on its back.

In a video posted online, Carolyn zooms in on what appears to be the head of a lifeless dog on top of a nearby rooftop.

Carolyn can be heard hissing before the nose of the apparent dog moves and is revealed to actually be the tail of a white cat.

The two black dots, which were thought to be the dog’s eyes, are also shown to be two markings on the cat.

Afterwards, a ‘shocked’ Carolyn uploaded the video to her Instagram page where it has been viewed almost 40,000 times.

One person described the cat as a ‘deepfake’, while another ironically accused it of ‘catfishing’.

The video is reminiscent of an optical illusion captured in a snowy forest last winter.

The picture shows either a figure walking into the woods or a black poodle running out of the forest.

It was widely circulated by Facebook users around the world, and people were split with many believing it to show a small figure heading into the woods wearing a backpack.

Upon closer inspection, it became clear the picture was actually of a black poodle running towards the camera.

The dog’s tail appeared at first glance to be the back of a person’s head.

Hundreds of people realised their initial take on the image was off after analysing the photo.

‘Took me a while to figure this one out,’ one person commented.

One user, who spotted the pooch immediately, wrote: ‘Why can’t I see the man? I only see the dog.’

Others thought it was clear, with one person writing: ‘I’m curious as to how the people who saw a man running were able to explain away the fact that running man has a giant dogs head coming out of them.’
