First the colour of a dress divided nations around the world and now people are arguing if this cat is going up or down the stairs.

The photo was posted on Imgur this week where it quickly racked up thousands of hits.

It has been one of the most popular posts on, a site that features user-generated content.

One user commented: "Down. Look at the staircase ... it is obvious that picture is taken from the lower point."

Another disagreed, adding: "I would say this cat is going up as it looks a bit up and forward. When cats go down, they look where they're stepping."
