How Does Your Kitty See?
Have you ever wondered what the world looks like to your furrbabies? Felines see quite a bit differently than humans. They have much better night vision and are able to follow quick-moving objects better than humans. They have a slightly wider field of vision (200 degrees vs 180 for humans), but can not see directly below their noses.
Cats see most colors, but a few less than we do, and the colors are somewhat duller. The things they see are less detailed.
Cats have a third eyelid, which closes from the side. It is often visible when they are sleepy, or when they are sick. Cats don’t need to blink constantly to lubricate their eyes, and that is probably helpful when they are hunting.
The following kitties are wearing glasses, either because they are near-sighted, need UV light protection, or as a fashion statement. Or maybe just because they look so cute with them on.
I said I didn’t want tortoiseshell. But I do look good in them, huh?

Is this the Blues Brothers? Or Men in Black? Or agents from the Matrix?
Pay attention to your lessons, or there will be no mice for lunch.
