This is about self-awareness. Experts believe that cats are not self-aware and are confused when looking at themselves in a mirror. However, this cat appears to be checking that what he is looking at is his reflection. The title is a joke but it does look like he is trying to work out what the two pointy objects on top of his head are. It is like he has seen them for the first time and is mystified by them.
