    I'm finding it hard to believe that cats would see that terrible in the day. It's like a foggy day where you can barely see anything whereas the human 'daylight' vision shows crisp outlines and objects.


    Just offhand, I'm finding that to be very strange and I just find it hard to believe that cats would see like that in the day (they'd be walking into walls and be utterly uncoordinated and blind)

    I don't agree with portion of the video describing feline vision either. Here is a veterinary description of feline vision I'm more inclined to believe:

    When it comes to cat vision, the myth that cats “can’t see color” manages to persist despite enormous evidence to the contrary. To be sure, they see color differently than the average human. But their sight isn’t all in black and white.

    "Cats are generally accepted as dichromats, meaning that they have two types of cones that see colors. There is some evidence that cats may even have three types of cones, which would make them trichromat."

    “To see color, animals need to have receptors in the retina known as cones,” says Dr. Brown. “What is true is that cats only have cones that detect blue and green. There are no cones for red. Therefore, cats have a more muted sense of color. Similar to a person who is color blind.”

    “A dying culture invariably exhibits personal rudeness. Bad manners. Lack of consideration for others in minor matters. A loss of politeness, of gentle manners, is more significant than is a riot.” Robert A. Heinlein
