The Meerkat nebula

Am I the only one who can clearly see a Meerkat in Simeis 147?  He sits there, curled up, with his tail coming round in front from between his back legs.

Since Simeis 147 only has the common name “The Spaghetti nebula” which implies a random structure – I propose the more endearing “Meerkat nebula” for Simeis 147 – a supernova remnant in Taurus/Auriga.
