(KGTV) — The Canadian Space Agency tweeted what it said was a satellite view of the Cape Breton Highlands in Nova Scotia.

But for many people, the image looked suspiciously like a cat lying on its side with a paw stretched out.

But the image is real.

The agency got in on the fun.

It followed up the original tweet with a new one saying “So apparently, quite a few of you see a cat in this satellite image. Does it mean it should have been named Cat Breton instead of Cape Breton? Help us sort out this confusion please."
