Mashable has spotted a little image manipulation magic in the packaging for Apple’s imminently-released Snow Leopard OS….the cat on the cover isn’t as savage as the feline you’ll load into your machine, it seems.

As the story goes, the Snow Leopard you’ll see on screen appears on your desktop you’ll see just a little blood on its teeth, while the same cat on the cover has had the tell-tale traces removed.

It’s interesting that Apple’s pulled a punch depicting just how feral its WIndows 7-devouring OS is. And it is.
