A Cat’s Black & White View

A somewhat spotty window to his world.

The cat tree is positioned so a male cat can see.

Birds, trees, bunnies, a feral cat, people, cars, the horrid garbage truck, the back of a Costco, and his human driving away to who-knows-where.

A cat’s vision is similar to a human that is color blind. While Gibbs may see some colors, I wonder how much of his world is a scene and motion in black and white.

He sits here most mornings, intent on catching the birds that land close, tail twitching, and an occasional attempt to lunge at said birds through the window, failing every gosh-darn time to solidify his intent.

Poor guy, maybe next time.


Today’s post is in response to Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: “Outside of your home or view.” Check out this awesome challenge and others by clicking HERE.

    Pumpkin likes to sit on the kitchen windowsill and swat at the lizards that climb on the outside screen. She wonders why they are unafraid of her…..

    Well, if Gibbs is like me, a lot of the world is gray-ish. But it’s how we see and it’s normal. Of course, his vision is better than mine in many ways.

      Along with the grayish world, Dan, I’m wondering if you also see things on the wall that aren’t really there. You know, cat fairies and the like. 😏😁

      He seems to be okay, maybe a tad more clingy than his already clingy personality. One thing has been constant is his alarm that tells him it’s time to eat! πŸ˜ΌπŸ™„

    My cats love to survey the world from the apartment second floor window. It’s their world and we live in it!

      I love your second sentence. Do our cats ever wonder what’s out there, on the horizon? The world we live in? Or are they content with their birds and squirrels?
