The Cat Marks The Spot

Why can’t I find this sort of thing when I use Google Maps? Auckland I am jealous of your Giant Cat.

GOOGLE CAT: Marked as near Auckland’s Hobson Bay walkway.

“A wonky image of a grinning cat on Google Maps caught the eye of one Stuff reader who sent in a screenshot. The cat’s wonky tail stretches off one side of Auckland’s Hobson Bay Walkway while its face grins out over the other. According to Google, it would take three minutes to walk the 250m from the tip of the cat’s tail to its eyeball.”

Sorry cat lovers no walking or driving over the cat, it doesn’t actually exist and the area it has been drawn over is a mangrove swamp. Google said the company was investigating.

I could picture these showing up on maps all over the world – a new cat “crop” circle phenomena.
