Ceiling Cat appears in an iceberg! And not just the face—the whole body! (The tracing to the right is hardly needed):
All praise to Him from whom all noms come.

just imagine the cataclysm that’d follow His almighty melting
sorry, that’s really forced, couldn’t resist. It was either that or playing with catholicism..
I can see that the expression on the face of ceil-cat is one exultation. How happy I am that now I am going to melt! Life is such a mis(t)ery!
(there is no sense of scale, some cat-skeptics may suspect that the the picture is just a tempest in a cup! photoshoppwned!)
A quick check with Snopes confirms that it was photoshopped, probably by a radical Catian! 🙂
maybe even a Catalan
I don’t care – it looks catnificent to me!!
I have finally accepted belief in the monotheistic catatonic view of the world.
And I am happier!!!!
Why kickest thou against the pricks?
I don’t care even if it was photoshopped! It still speaks of a deeper truth on a higher polythoughtfull plain.
Ceiling Cat can haz prazes! Srsly!
It’s true even if not real. It’s a metaphor for the loving embrace that Ceiling Cat extends to the Universe.
True, while not true, I do know that there is lots of evidence for Ceiling Cat, and while concocted, this evidence is an example of what all that true evidence and all those facts look like. Good reminder!
Anyone want some email forwards?
Really? I searched for “cat iceberg” and got no results found.
That’s what I was going to say. I don’t think “Douglas E” is telling the truth, but of course he only needs to provide a link to prove us wrong.
The left image isn’t photoshopped. I’ve found a panoramic from which that pic has been cropped & it’s otherwise unaltered.
C’mon folks – the tongue is firmly in the cheek!!! I guess there needs to be an emoticon for that, eh?
I’m more impressed with the kid who climbed that berg with the orange spray paint. Modest too. He didn’t even tag it!
There is another story in the news about an art conservator finding the devil in a cloud in a 13th century fresco by Giotto; now a cat (Ceiling Cat at that) in an iceberg. Either the supernatural is more super than we thought or people are good at seeing things that intrigue them and register in their brains … I wonder which … ?
The devil in a cloud in a painting? You mean poor Giotto had to wait all this time for someone to get it?
Classic example of The Believing Brain, Schermer’s book about this exact phenomena…
I suppose if two more were calved from the same glacier, you’ll have yourself a Trinity.
Oh Francis? Where art thou? This beats a frozen waterfall any day!
But it’s a cartoon cat…
If you haven’t been transformed you won’t understand the meaning.
Little rancid jesus bits or this much fresh FSM.
And, all the time I have been worshiping the Flying Spaghetti Monster deity. Please forgive me O Great Ceiling Cat.
As he melts, he’ll just go with the floe…
I’m confused now. Is Ceiling Cat calved from Ceiling Cow?
Laugh all you want, but since my two cats saw this photo, they haven’t had a hairball in the past 15 minutes.
And Ceiling Cat is smiling.
All is good.
Looks more like a ceiling flying squirrel to me.
The seeds of a-cathetics!
It’s the apochraphyl gospel of Peter’s Ceiling Cat! Now we need a walking talking cross…or cat climbing tree
Y not “from HER all noms come”?
I think the tracing of the left paw is incorrect – it obviously should be a bit further to the right of the image. I guess this must be a sign of the End Times – calving is now producing kittehs.
That is not Ceiling Cat. That is Long Cat. What kind of a biologist are you?
I had the same reaction. Clearly, that is long cat.
If you look closely it appears to look like a child within the image of the devil. The horns are the eyes then you can see the nose & the mouth is the devils eye.
Much more inspiring than those zombie fish or whatever that PZ came up with.
