    Tail + tail from another cat hiding to the rear.
    Or maybe mommy is leaning over the kitten, just behind the curtain.

    Given the effectiveness of Felis domesticus</> as a highly effective predator, I don’t know that this or any hybrid Felis arachnidis actually does need any more eyes though it does have me wondering if binoculoar vision applies to those with more than two oculae – octacular vision? Decoular vision? Then there’s the vision of trilobites..

    GM the gecko “setae” into the pads at the cat’s paws and you get this effect!

    Advantage: the moggies no longer need to trash the drapes with their claws to climb to the ceiling.

    To chase the drop bears from tree to tree the spidercats need skin membranes between fore and aft legs so they can do the flying squirrel thing.

    Extra eyes with receptors for near UV (like birds and reptiles) or near IR (like some bacteria).
    Amphibious cats obviously needs one pair of eyes to look just above the water surface and another pair to look underwater at the same time.

    Extra limbs: I don’t know if centauroid cats would have an advantage. Maybe making rude gestures at dogs while running from them?

    Almost certainly an adult cat above and behind the kitty, but obscured by the curtain.

    @11. nomdeplume : Well, we’re not seeing the whole creature there so there might actually be more legs behind that curtain!

  8. StevoR says

    @ 12 birgerjohansson :Only almost certainly?

    So it could be an actual mutant, multi-legged spider-cat hybrid of some sort then ya reckon?
