    Is it a cat? Is it a dog? Can you even see the image?

    For my digitization and digital preservation class, I am writing the metadata for this image.

    I can't decide if it's a cat or a dog. What do you all think? Can you even see the image?

    Definitely a cat. The ears, eyes, and tail all seem cat like.

    I'm sad, I thought this would be one of those illusions where both are there and it reveals inner truths on which we see.

    Cat, for sure. The paws are the giveaway to me. The other features, even the ears, could be dog tho they're all more catlike, but the paws are 100% incontrovertible cat.

    The biggest detractor is the snout, though. Something about the lighting makes the face look somewhat dog-like.

    I know what you mean. I have pugs, which are neither cat nor dog nor of this planet ...

    That was my thought too - the only thing that was in question is the snout, but it's shadowy picture. Everything else about it - especially the muscles of the shoulder and front leg - says cat, including the fact that it wouldn't sit still for the picture

    The cat. The skull shape and the legs are a cat, not a dog.

    Cat - some cats have a longer face. Could be part Siamese:

    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    Even a man who is pure in heart and says his prayers by night, may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms and the autumn moon is bright.

    I voted for 'cat' but I was not 100% sure. If the question was "what animal do you see?" I am not sure that I would have picked 'cat'. However, I thought 80% of it looked like a cat; definitely not a dog.
