We love when a photo goes viral and breaks the internet. We love controversy. The internet loves cats. So naturally, the next optical illusion to ruin your friendships has a cat involved. Is this furry feline going UP or DOWN these stairs?

Let the debate begin!

Business Insider explains the view from both perspectives. “Some people are saying this is exactly how the stairs would look if the cat were going down. The arrow points to the stair lip, which wouldn’t be visible from above.” That is how I initially viewed the illusion. However, I red the argument for the other side, and I’m officially torn. “Others are insisting the cat is going up, and the viewer is looking down at mosaic stairs with a wooden lip.”
I see both!
(PS- The dress was always black and blue, and I totally called it).
