Found this on Yahoo and for the life of me couldn't figure it out. Then it hit me! Weird.

This cat can be perceived as rotating in either direction. With practice, you can make it switch at will!

I love this illusion. I have it on one of my webpages. I would love to use this one on my new site. I love making it change directions

OK, you guys are totally messing with my head right?

It it only going counter-clockwise for me!

So does that make me left or right brained?

This took me a while to get. For those still having trouble see if this works for you. Look at the rotating cat while holding a finger about 8-10 inches from your eyes slightly lower than the direct line of the cat image. Now focus on your fingertip, barely looking at the cat in the background until the cat changes direction.

Oh this thing is driving me crazy too! I've been "practicing" and still can't get it to switch on command. It just turns clockwise for me....:Dizzy:
