You won’t be able to stop staring at this wildly impressive catbeard

It’s purrfect.

There have been a fair few ‘catbeards’ floating around the internet in recent years, but this one really puts the cat among the pigeons.

Matthew Thiesen, a travel and leisure social ambassador from Alberta, Canada, captured the moment his wife’s eyes and forehead lined up with his 13-year-old cat Naula’s nose and mouth.

The illusion is so effective that, from a distance, it’s difficult to see where the cat stops and the human starts.

Thiesen told the Press Association: “Naula is very interested in bugs, so to get him to look up (and stay looking up), I stuck a small plastic insect on the ceiling.

“After that, my wife posed behind him while holding him up, and I snapped a bunch of pictures.

“Thankfully, one lined up perfectly, which is the one I posted!”

Perfectly? Or purrfectly…

You can keep up with Naula through his Instagram account that he shares with a couple of feline pals.
