    Amazing, and very timely at that. When I passed around the top photo of Post 778666 only 1 person out of 6 spotted the cat. The 1 is my better half, who had to point it out to me. The rest of my family had seen the photo over the years, but never picked up on the puddytat. I guess this is another case of the eye only seeing what the brain expects it to see.

    I guess you can make it 2 out of 7 because I saw the eye and ear. Mebbe it's cause I also have a black kitty cat.

    Ah yes, but you knew to look for a cat before you viewed the picture.

    Huh?
    Knowing you, as I do, to be one of the smartest, brightest and kindest on the planet, I naturally assumed that the cat was your grandfather(*)


    (*)That's a compliment, Alan, both to you and to all cats!

    P.S. Here's a photo of Jupiter's Great Grandfather
