Does my cat see colors?

    No, cats, like dogs, are color blind. Though their sight is excellent being natural hunters, a cat’s eye has a heavy population of “rods” which convert black and white, and a far fewer number of “cones,” which convert color.

    Cats are usually colorblind. The retina of a cat contains many more rods (cells that convert light into black and white) than cones (cells that convert light into color).

    Since they do have a few cones they can theoretically distinguish some color, but it is not clear how much. Also, being able to see color is not really important to a cat; variation in brightness is much more important to cats.
