Can you find the hidden cat?

We all know how wild cats are camouflage masters, they have to be in order to catch prey in the wild, but in a sort of rural-ish, wild-ish landscape they still get the gold medal for camouflage, even if it’s just to hunt field rats and mice.

It’s no secret that optical illusions challenge our mind and eyes and the ability to spot something that would otherwise be invisible to the unaware mind. Also, optical illusions are super fun and entertaining, whether done with a group or solo. The game aims to entertain the mind. So, why is this illusion so different from the others? Well, first of all, you are challenged to find something that is literally the same color as the background.  A desert-like landscape filled with golden hues, a dusty, un-kept area with dead golden grass, golden sand, a dirt road, and an old, dilapidated stone wall. It makes one think, what could we possibly be looking for? Well, we are looking for a golden tabby cat. Also, if the actual setting didn’t make it hard enough, how about adding a time frame to find this majestic creature, we’ll give you 30 seconds.
