Is this zoomorphism, am I in Wonderland, or have I missed a cosmic joke?

A group of galaxies nicknamed the "Cheshire Cat" about 4.6 billion light years from Earth.

À la recherche du temps perdu

‘The time has come,’ the Walrus said,

‘To talk of many things:

Of shoes — and ships — and sealing-wax —

Of cabbages — and kings —

And why the sea is boiling hot —

And whether pigs have wings.’

From Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, 1871
