Cattery Whangarei – Deloraine Cattery

As we all know our cuddly furry friends have evolved from hunters, so we can understand their sense of sight is one of their strongest, and designed so they can see in the dimmest of light. Tests have shown cats appear to distinguish light spectrums rather than colors. 

The Retina – the nerve center at the back of the eye – contains cells called cones ( these are responsible for converting light into color) and Rods (rods are responsible for black and white) and in cats the Rods outnumber the cones.

So Can Cats see colors… Not in the same why we do, we have more cone cells in our Retina, which allow us to see colors. Cats have more Rods cells in their Retina, so if they could see any color at all it would more likely be bark colors such as Blues, greens and purples but bright colors would appear dual, less intense or vibrant.

Oh and Don’t forget theres only 1 place your cat should stay while you’re away The Deloraine Cattery
