Seeing as how I just adopted an abandoned kitten, I found this article especially interesting. Although this project doesn't seem to be backed in as
much hard science as I'd like--it seems to be more of an artist's interpretation--it is still neat to get a glimpse into how our feline friends view
For starters, cats’ visual fields are broader than ours, spanning roughly 200 degrees instead of 180 degrees, and their visual acuity isn’t as
good. So, the things humans can sharply resolve at distances of 100-200 feet look blurry to cats, which can see these objects at distances of up to 20
feet. That might not sound so great, but there’s a trade-off: Because of the various photoreceptors parked in cats’ retinas, they kick our asses
at seeing in dim light.
