Trusting our own eyes isn’t always a given: angles, perspectives, and perfectly timed moments can occasionally play deceitful games with our minds. In this compilation, you’ll come across images that require at least a second look to comprehend what’s happening.
Rumeysa Gelgi was born on January 1, 1997, in Turkey. At the age of 26, she holds five different titles and records. She is recognized as the tallest woman in the world, with a height of 215.16 cm. We would like to share the story of this remarkable young woman with you.
Life has funny ways of surprising us. Sometimes it bestows us with miracles and good things, but in order to create a balance, it also throws some infuriating things along our way. For instance, you pay a fortune for a dream haircut but it ends up looking like a disaster, or your phone charger breaks in a time of emergency. We found such unfortunate yet funny moments below to be thankful for the good things happening to us.
Humans and other mammals give birth in the same way. But pregnancies can go in totally different directions. While humans are pregnant for around 280 days, opossums — just 12, and elephants — around 665 days!
Just like humans, many animals like to play, including dogs, cats, ravens, and even herring gulls. And it’s important for them to know how to play, since this behavior helps them be more psychologically flexible. Not only that, but knowing how to play and interract with other beings prepares them for future aggressive encounters.
Making their owners gush is an ability every pet has from birth. But everything has a reverse side and, in some cases, a fluffy cute animal can look like a character from a horror movie in photos. The good thing is that instead of starting to panic, pet owners can grab their cameras and please the Internet with funny photos.
The angle from where a photo is taken can define the whole picture. The chosen perspective can make certain parts disappear, and it can also make some objects look like they are defying logic. These images often confuse our brains, but it can also be quite fun to figure them out.
The expression “Not everything is what it seems” perfectly describes the pareidolia phenomenon. It happens when you look at your cat’s toe beans, and a nose is all you can see, for example. Although it might take you aback at first glance, it’s quite an amusing experience.
The games begin when the universe challenges our perception of reality. That is, when a tiny kitten suddenly takes on the shape of a hybrid with huge paws, all because of the angle at which its photo was taken. It’s as baffling as it is fascinating. Even if you aren’t the biggest fan of puzzles, these real-life optical illusions are the recipe for a good time.
Perspective plays an important part in the way our brain translates what our eyes are seeing. That’s exactly how people end up mixing up a cat’s tongue for luscious lips. It sounds a bit weird, but the photographic evidence for this sort of phenomenon is nothing short of fascinating.
A picture might be worth a 1,000 words, but an endearing one is priceless. When you’re having a tough day, the image of a baby cuddling a cat can do wonders to reassure you not all is bad. Thankfully for us, social media allowed for these kind of pics to be shared across the world.
There are so many cute things around us — think of a tiny bunny, or a kitten, or even both of them playing together. That warm fuzzy feeling that most of us get made scientists wonder what makes someone or something cute. They came to the conclusion that we feel this way when we see baby-like features, even in animals, and it has its roots in evolution.
A cat whose fur pattern lines up flawlessly or a game console that fits in a shelf like a puzzle piece. These findings calm the soul of anyone who loves tidiness and organization. For those who don’t care about being neat, they’re still visually pleasing. It’s a win-win!
Some animals win our hearts faster than lighting. Their kind and endearing nature even has the power to make us question how we treat others. From a cat that tightly snuggles its rat pal to a dog that makes sure its sister pup can safely use the doggie door, animals constantly show us what unconditional love is.
Adopting a pet is a big step for a family — it can totally change its dynamic. One thing is for sure: our pets can multiply our happy feelings day in and day out. Some dads were firm about not wanting to adopt a cat, a dog, or a bird, and they all had their reasons for it. That is, until they snuggled with their new furry friend on a warm couch, feeling their love.
Having a furry best friend is wonderful because every day is a new adventure. Even though you might know them like the palm of your hand, they still find ways to surprise us. Whether it’s catching your dog red-handed up on the kitchen countertop or realizing your cat was napping inside a drawer, animals are masters at doing the unexpected.
Taking a perfect selfie with your cat, adopting a dog after years of wishing for one, or simply waking up next to your furry best friend — these are all little moments in our lives that we wouldn’t trade for anything else. All these snapshots have the power to give us the shivers and turn our frowns upside down.
In a day and age where all we know is touch-and-go, it’s good to take a moment to appreciate life for how extraordinary it can be. It’s true that a loving elderly cat hugging its new owner isn’t something you see every day, but that’s the beauty of photography and social media. Combined, they let us live and relive everyday moments that never fail to make us smile.
On rare occasions, the game Where’s Waldo? jumps from the pages of its books straight to the real world. But this time, you aren’t looking for Waldo; you’re just trying to find your cat around the house or wondering why your body lotion perfectly blends in with your bathroom tiles. And it’s crazy how random yet mind-blowing these accidental camouflages can get.
Being moved by something’s cuteness and laughter are definitely among the best feelings out there. Today’s heroes are the embodiment of both: a doggo who stole all the hoagie rolls that could fit in his mouth, a boy chosen by a dozen cats to be their chair, a little girl unsuccessfully trying to hide under a bucket, and many more.
A cat’s toe that looks like a human nose, a frozen windshield resembling a majestic Nordic landscape, or an egg that has two shells — some things in nature are so mesmerizing. It’s as if it actually decided to have a little fun and surprise us with its creations.
Animals are extremely cute, but understanding them can be a tough challenge. Some of their habits that we’ve gathered here are great mysteries, like, for example, a doggo that doesn’t bite people but bites their shoes, or a cat that chooses to sit in his water bowl instead of drinking from it.
Pet cats are like furry rebels who have no regard for house rules. For example, they sit and lounge wherever they like — on top of clean clothes, inside the dish rack, and even right on their owner’s face. But we can’t resist their charm, and despite their mischievous ways, we still love those little furballs.
Before adopting a cat, we can do our usual routines with little or no outside interruptions. But after welcoming a fur baby into our lives, things take a sharp turn, and normal tasks, like going to the toilet, become activities best done in pairs: ourselves and our cats. One thing is for sure — our cats can be the highlight of our day, and we’re forever in their service.
Some animals are true rebels without a cause. They will test our patience to the limit because they know we can’t help but love them. From a lizard that steals a burger to a dog that purposely boops its cat friend on the nose, the world is more exciting thanks to these troublemakers.
Animals are known for abiding by no rules, even pets. Whether it’s a dog that sits like a human or a cat that likes to hang inside the fridge, animals are free spirits who do whatever brings them joy. Their eccentric personalities often get loads of laughs out of their owners.
Experts say that the human and dog brain function very similarly when it comes to showing love and affection. For example, when a human and a dog are looking at each other, their levels of oxytocin increase equally. But almost all animals can feel love and show it to humans. Horses, cats, and even rodents will express their love for us when we are around them.
Like humans, animals aren’t identical with one another and they often have characteristics that can’t be found anywhere else. For example, there are some dogs that have long beards like some men do. There are also cats that have the most magical, illuminating eyes that can hypnotize anyone. Luckily, we have the internet to thank for sharing all these pictures that help us see things that we might never see up close.
