Can you find the cat hidden in a now-viral photo? The photo shows a crowded bookcase, and now people are trying to find the cat hidden there. If you’re still trying to find the cat, read on for the answer.
This photo is kind of like a feline version of Where’s Waldo. And since both cats and Where’s Waldo are so popular, it’s no surprise that this tricky picture has gone viral on social media.
The photo was first shared on June 7 by Kate Hinds. She’s the planning editor for WNYC, a public radio station. She posted the photo to her Twitter timeline.

First, here’s another hint: the cat is close to The Power Broker.

Someone else pointed out that her cat was very close to a picture of a bird, which was pretty funny.

Hinds loves sharing stories about her cat on Twitter. Here’s another cute picture of her cat from this month:
You know summer is here when my cat positions herself directly in front of the fan pic.twitter.com/mCkU7kzhMJ

Last month, Hinds shared that her cat likes to guard the room she works in and will meow like crazy if she closes the door. I can relate to this, because my cat Mufasa does the same thing if I close my office door. Cats don’t like being kept away from their loved ones.
My cat guards the room I work in and if I dare — DARE — to shut the door to keep the noise levels down (kids schooling in other room) she MEOWS HER HEAD OFF pic.twitter.com/GM4HzH6FP8

In April she shared her cat’s “Kingdom of Boxes”:
