What Do Cats See?

Wed, 16 Oct 2013 21:03:19 +0000

This is so cool!  These photos approximate what cats see compared to what we see.  Artist and researcher, Nickolay Lamm, consulted with veterinary ophthalmologists before creating these photos.  (This guy has one sexy brain!)  It’s just a hypothesis based on facts, but it definitely makes it easier for me to imagine what they see, because trying …
