We all know cats are extremely flexible and can occasionally pour themselves into some pretty tight places. However, a tabby cat named Marvin, has taken things to a whole other level and recently confused the internet.
Recently, Francesco De Filippo shared a photo to Reddit of little Marvin being cradled in the arms of his sister. However something strange appears on the photo. It seems as though Marvin’s sisters’ hand is passing right through him. The picture left dozens of internet users scratching their heads. “Please explain this, my brain is broken,” one Reddit user wrote while another added, “What the f-“.
After some time trying to figure out what is going on in the photo many people pointed out that it might be a photo that is photoshopped.
“The picture is genuine,” De Filippo said adding “There were rumours and comments saying that I used Photoshop, but nothing could be more false than this.” Turns out, there’s a perfectly reasonable explanation. “Basically, her hand passes under his right armpit, and due to his chonkiness and fur (a lot of fur), her wrist got covered up,” De Filippo said.
Someone drew up this helpful sketch to explain Marvin’s positioning:
“He likes to be held on our arms,” De Filippo said. “He is a cute, chonky boy. He loves to cuddle.” And he's clearly also pretty bendy.“He would be very happy at all the attention he’s getting. Because all the attention in the world would not be enough for this cute little boy.”
