Cat Vision at Night
Cats can see pretty well in the dark or at least better than people. In fact, the “cat burglar” was partly developed from the theory that cats can move around at ease in the dark because of their night vision. Burglars who tend to strike at night are referred to as cat burglars for their own ability to move around freely at night. However, you may be surprised to learn that cats don’t do a lot of prowling at night because they can see so well. Yes, they can see a lot better than most people, but they can’t see in complete darkness. A cat’s eyes work differently than a human’s. The pupils of their eyes are able to open much wider in dim light. This allows more light in and gives them the ability to hunt after dark. It does not; however, give them night vision.
