Why does the mouse have whiskers and the cat doesn’t? Elsevier screws up again!
And that mouse is wearing sunglasses INSIDE! What a poser.
Tries to pose as a cool cat I guess.
Or wants to be anonymouse.
simple – you’re looking at them edge-on – simple illustrators trick..
end-on I mean…
Yup, they are hinted at as white, a bad choice in the context. The illustrator probably used a photo, and the whiskers color is probably in there but also more visible.
They’re magic (divine) whiskers – you can’t see them or touch them but you have faith that they must be there.
magic (divine) healing whiskers, mind you – that’s why I spend my hard-earned dollars on the freeze-dried powder for what ails me.
You are all a bunch of clairvoyants! I must be too! Here we are, writing about it on the 30th of August, and the cover is dated 31 August so only comes out the day AFTER we have discussed it. Hmmmmmmm
I have also being trying to figure out what is holding the cat’s attention as it is certainly not the poser nor the hider, looks more like the tip of the poser’s tail.
As they say: Just because it’s published in _Cell_ doesn’t mean it’s wrong.
The mouse is too stressed to cognitively perceive the cat’s whiskers..
Sunglasses, but no Cell phone?
You made me choke
I like the mouse with sunglasses. A cool mouse
It is Ceiling Cat. He has no need for whiskers.
