Jasper is a four-year-old German Shepherd cross black/brown/white. He is a happy boy who loves his pool, enjoys walking on a leash, and likes to ride in the car. Jasper is OK with bathing, brushing, and grooming. Come out and take a walk with him; he would love to be your BFF.
Me and Ow here. Watson decided that he was going on a sightseeing trip, so he asked us to write about the colors we see. Watson can only see yellow, blue, and gray. He cannot see reds or purples. On the other hand, we can see blue-violet, yellow-green, gray, and some tinges of green.
We are not colorblind! Many people mistake our lack of color identification to color blindness. Humans can be colorblind, which limits their ability to distinguish colors. A colorblind person may be unable to distinguish red from green. The difference is cats can only see certain colors.
Cats and humans both have two types of receptors in their eyes: cones and rods. Cones handle vision during the day along with color perception. The cones detect wavelengths of light, which allow the eye to see color. Rods take care of night vision and peripheral vision.
Humans have three cones that detect the whole spectrum of light while cats only have two cones, which limit the spectrum of light we see. We have more rods than humans do, so we see much more in the dark and we can detect quick movement.
We are crepuscular, which means we are active at dawn and dusk. Because of our unique eyes, we notice anything that moves, and we are equipped to see well in the dark, which makes us excellent nighttime hunters.
What types of toys appeal to cats? The number one no, no for cat toys is a laser pointer because we cannot see the color red. Great toys engage our natural predator instincts. We like something to pounce on preferably in yellow, blue, or maybe green.
We will be seeing you around!
