We aren't always able to immediately take in the scene in front of us and understand what we are seeing. So when you walk into a room and see your beloved kitty lying on the floor surrounded by a red substance, it's not surprising that you automatically think the worst.
Likewise, when you first glance at these photos, you will immediately see why the animal's owner went into panic mode. The scenes are horrifying, baffling and outright bizarre, that is until you go back and take a second look.
