how many triangles

Triangle Cat

Remember those “How Many Triangles Are In This Picture” puzzles?

I cannot express to you how much I hated those. I always missed like 12 of them. Like this image above. What’s your guess? The correct answer is 543. Weird, huh?

Anyhow, this afternoon our cat Mai was sitting and staring at me. Kinda like this:

As she stared at me and I stared back at her, I realized that she makes a triangle when she sits like this.

And then I saw two more triangles (her ears). And then…well…I ended up finding seven triangles on my cat.

So if you were wondering if I had a productive afternoon today, obviously the answer is yes.
