Four-Legged Perspective

For those who are looking for an extra bit of challenge, show us two photos, each one showing a different angle or interpretation of the same subject

Know what this is?

It’s shades of gray, veering toward the dark tones of  an unadorned holiday tree, not far from the edge of the sofa. It was the view of a cat named Gibbs for two months…a view that is not colorfully human. Cat eyes do not see the same as human eyes.

THIS is what cats see of the world. Cool, interesting. The photo above could have used an editing program that would have blurred the scene and thrown in a bit of color.

Gibbs and Ziva may see better than their human in the dark, but the one that feeds them views the world in a crisp and colorful way. It’s no wonder the kids have a hard time finding a piece of chicken lost on a similarly-colored floor or plate.

My view from under the Christmas tree looked a bit different.

    Yer at it again, you clever thinker, you, M-J! 😀
    Dunno about that site and its comparisons: I s’pose it’s saying that cats don’t have any wide vision – could that be true?
    Whose nose?
    😉

      I don’t think anyone can be sure what a cat sees, it’s all a guess…just like Gibbs guessing what time I’ll be home to feed him.

        Oh, but THAT’s just H-O-P-E. Or possibly B-E-L-I-E-F.
        Something tells me that very superior mog is never going to fade away from hunger …

    Blimey that first photograph looks like a work of art. Cats get such a great vision! I learnt something new. No wonder our cats are fascinated with boring garden furniture and paving stones!

      Thanks for the nice comment about the first photo. I always knew that cats see differently, but the photos comparing human and cat vision are stunning to me. I didn’t know Gibbs’ world was so foggy.
