Do Cats See Color?

Do Cats See Color?

That picture for this post was actually my cat. Wow, I should be a professional photographer. (not really though. I would probably end up taking 5000 pictures.)

So, It’s a typical Sunday. I went to church ate lunch at my grandparents’ house and now I’m back home. I was just trying to solve a REALLY HARD puzzle when I had a random thought. So, here it is. Do cats see color? The reason I asked that question is that I know that dogs don’t see color but I have no idea if cats do.

Well, here’s what I found on that question.

In scientific observations, cats don’t appear to perceive the full range of colors that humans can. Some scientists believe that cats see only blue and gray, while others think they also see yellow like their canine counterpart

I found this information at VCAhospitals

So no one really knows for sure if they can see the color or not. Hmmm… I’m still really curious about that. Let’s see if we can find something else from a different website.

This is the information I found at Resources.ThriveVet

Cats do perceive colors but, because they have fewer cones, they perceive fewer range colors. Scientists believe that the feline species can see blue, gray, and possibly yellow. And so while your cat may not view the world as colorful as you do, it does not see in black and white either.

That basically says the same thing. I guess we won’t know for sure until scientists have some sort of fancy-schmancy technology that makes you turn into a cat or something. Maybe, they could find some way to make contacts that you put on so you can see things like a cat. I don’t know. Maybe we will all turn into flying pop tart cats that poop out rainbows as we fly.

Someday Eva, someday. Well, happy flying in 2000 years. Bye! 👋
