How Cats See The World

timessq cat2 cat1mountaindarkvision grandcentral Artist Nickolay Lamm (he of Average Guys) consulted with animal eye specialists and ophthalmologists at the University of Pennsylvania’s veterinary school to visualise how cats (lower pix) see the world compared to humans (upper pix).

The blurry edges of the vistas represent cats’ enhanced peripheral vision. Elliptical pupils and greater concentration of rods in the retina means that their night sight is also superior, but cats have poor distance vision and can see blue and yellow colors, but not red, orange or brown.
