Is there a zoologist, or anyone who simply knows this, who could tell me which animals can have red glowing eyes in urban (European) areas?

You'll notice I said "can" (have them). By that I mean possible illness or other conditions that could change an ordinarily different colour of eyes into red.

I remember reading somewhere that cats can have red eyes if they are sick, but the source wasn't clear whether it was meant the actual colour of their eyes (e.g. blood-shot) by daylight or the reflection in night time.

Thanks!

Well, my cat does. It is a bit creepy sometimes.

Really?
Is it temporary (illness), or do its eyes always - in darkness, too -have a red glow?

Thank you!


(P.S. and totally OT:
Please, do get the poor cat examined; I am sure it can't be a good symptom.)

Well ANY animal “can” have red eyes, if they have a condition such as Albinism.

Most animals like Cats, Foxes, Rats etc have glowing eyes.

Did you see something specific? And not sure what it was?

They just light up glowing red sometimes at night. I don't know. Cats are very strange beings in the first place. They clearly have significant psychic abilities, moreso than dogs. The Egyptians sure did love their cats.

If you are talking about reflective red here's a particial list

cows
foxes
rabbits
rats
some owls
for non traditional animals, people claim
bigfoot
mothman

I have heard people say that some big cats have red eye shine, but I do not know. I read that aligators do to but I have not seen that.

The only animals I know of that can having glowing red eyes in urban areas at night are republicans. Maybe that's just me.

Eye shine is due to the structure in the eyes. People have red eye shine for example. Look at photos. It's not due to a sickness, it's just the way light reflects.

I believe your question was concerning the animals eyes at night.

Moonlight and light from automobiles will cause the animals eyes to look very bright and reddish in color.

Living down a long dirt road through the woods I see deer, raccoon, possum eyes and wild cat eyes at night.

Raccoons, possums and house cats are common in cities. They are scavengers and will travel into populated areas to search for food.

Causation
The light of the flash occurs too fast for the iris of the eye to close the pupil. Light passes through the blood-rich area alongside the iris (called the choroid) and then strikes the retina. Some of the light is reflected back out through the iris. The camera records this reflected light which has now passed twice through the reddish choroid. This principle is used in fundoscopy, an examination of the retina with an opthalmoscope, wherein a positive reddish-orange reflection is a normal finding.

Thank you very much, all of you.

I know it was not due to a flash of light (because there was no flash of light - duh
); it was not a raccoon or any other "exotic" or forest animal, because there are none in my area (and BTW, the same goes for US republicans
).

A cat would be the most likely (though not necessarily the only) candidate.
It's just that I've never seen a cat's eyes glow red (I mean really RED) in the darkness - every time I saw one in the dark, the reflection of its eyes was yellowish-green/amber.


Again, thanks!

every color of the spectrum is visible when reflected off eyes.

Well yes... but have you ever seen a cat with RED eyes?


It's NOT a rhetorical question; it's just that I haven't.

I am sure - well, almost - that it WAS a cat. But I am sure it wasn't healthy, the poor thing.

No. No cat has ever exhibited psychic abilities, and neither has any dog. No human has either, for that matter.

I know what you mean...

I don't "own" any animals, but I respect and love them very much; I also like observing them. And although I wouldn't call any animal "strange"- with the exception of homo sapiens - cats are definitely often "on" to some things that people seem perfectly unaware of.

Plants, too - but that's yarn for another thread.

My husky mutt has eyes that reflect red. Coyotes have eyes that glow red too. You don't need a lot of light, just enough to reflect off of them. Even bright moonlight will do

Hahaha.

Yes they have. It is a documented fact. Cambridge scholar and author Rupert Sheldrake has documented it extensively, using the scientific method. It's non-debatable.

Discounting coyotes (not really a common sight in Central Europe
), I am sure it was an animal (what else could it have been?).

But here's the thing: if that is so common... wouldn't I have seen it more often?
(I am observant; and I especially like observing animals and "nature" in general; and while I do live in an urban area, there are cats, dogs and lots of birds where I live.)

And yet, that was the first - and so far the last - time I've seen that.

(I am not arguing with you, BTW... just so you know.
)
