Cats are not completely color blind, but they don't see colors the same way humans do. They see colors about the same way a human with red/green colorblindness would.

No, none of the cats, wild or domestic, are color blind. They can see colors.

Dogs are all color blind. Cats see only blue, purple, green and yellow. So that means dogs are more color blind then cats.

Not all Cats are color-blind. It's been proven by scientists that most Cat's can distinguish 3 colors: Green, Blue and Yellow.

cats aren't colour blind they just don't see the colours as clearly as humans.

blue if they are blind Blue eyes does not mean a black cat is blind. A white cat with blue eyes has a much greater risk of being deaf, but there is no particular eye color for cats who are blind. Black cats can have any color that cats can have, like green, green-gold, yellow, gold, blue, orange...

No, cats are not color blind, except for cats with blue eyes, usually. However, cats cannot see themselves in the mirror, so that is interesting.

Yes, my old cat was, but it didn't affect him at all.

No. While their color vision is not as strong as ours, they can see colors. They do, however, have limited depth perception.

White cats with BLUE EYES are deaf, not blind. But if the white cat has any other color of eyes, or if it has one blue eye and one eye that is not blue, then they usually are not deaf.

i would say no because cats are not fully colorblind but said to be.

User Avatar

Most cats can see, a few are blind for various reasons, but the general species of cats is not blind, no.

no, they dont even HAVE to be blind. you can be color blind without even close relatives or any with color blind history in their past.

Not nessesarily. The mother can be either color-blind or simply a carrier of the gene.

Most animals are NOT color blind, though they may have difficulty with certain colors. Two good rules of thumb are:If the male or female is brightly colored, the animal is probably not colorblindMost daytime animals see in colorSo dogs and cats, for example, are NOT color blind, though they may be better at seeing blues and yellows. Cats may have trouble with reds, and dogs have a harder time differentiating green from orange.
