❓ Can cats see colors and what colors can they see? #DoYouKnow Cats can indeed see some colors, but not all colors. Research has found that cats have colour-sensitive cones in their eyes, but not as many as a human's. Humans with normal vision have 3 types of cones, while dogs and cats have only 2 types. Cats seem to be able to distinguish between higher frequency colors, meaning cats respond to the colors purple, blue, green and possibly yellow range.
