Top 10 Best Images of Laser Eyed Cats

Have you ever taken a family photo and ended up with a red “glow” in the centre of their eyes?  Well, when it comes to cats eyes the same thing happens because their eyes have a special reflective surface called the “tapetum” which improves their night vision by doubling the amount of light that is able to hit the retinal cells, and it is also why cats can see so well in the dark!  This special layer is what makes a cat’s eyes glow brightly in the dark, especially when you shine a light near of at them at night. But it seems that us “Cat Fans” have taken to calling those images “Laser Eyed Cats”, and so with that in mind and because it is Caturday after all, I decide it is time to take a look at…

10 – Green means you are paralysed and red is dead! Choose quick or feed me!

FACT: Most of us cats fans know this, but studies show that a cat can see clearly in only one-sixth the light that us humans need. And cats don’t even like carrots!

9 – You will buy premium priced kitty food, oh yes!

FACT: Linking in with the previous fact, it seems that cats can’t see in total darkness at all! Just much better in low light. So not that amazing at all.

8 – Making the images black & white doesn’t seem to help at all!

FACT: Cats are the only animal in the world (and that included monkeys) that can not only suffer, but indeed catch our human eye conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, and pinkeye!

7 – “Yeah I am locked out, so feel free to laugh it up dog!….While you still can!”

FACT: The back of the cat’s retina contains a layer of mirror-like cells called the tapetum lucidum which collects and reflects light and is responsible for “eye shine”. This is why you get eerie glowing eye photos when you use the flash, hence this laser-eyed cats post.

6 – “Call me “Hobo Kitty” one…more…time!”

FACT: Here is a strange one, ALL pure white breed cats will have blue eyes are almost 80% of them are deaf! Scientists still don’t really know why this is, but the best guess is that it is a genetic marker to make them naturally weak because in the wild white cats would have ruined any possibility to hunt!

5 – “You will forget that you ever saw me in the in your underwear draw..GOT IT!”

FACT: Your cat’s large pupils are not just good for seeing in the dark, they are also a strong indication of its emotional state. Narrow pupil means anger or irritation, and wide-open pupils mean the cat is excited!

4 – “Home a little….’LATE’ aren’t we?!? That food bowl isn’t going to fill its self!

FACT: Because the elliptical pupil opens and closes faster than the round pupil cats eyes adjust to light very rapidly, in fact from an almost dark room to a light room it takes them just 0.5 of a second!

2 – !!!…just keep walking backwards and no sudden movements!

FACT: The higher rod count of a cat’s eyes allows cats to detect even the slightest of movement, meaning they can catch small rodents quite easily.

1 – Um..I’ll just catch the bus instead then…*GULP!*who needs cars anyway!

FACT: A cat’s vision is sharpest when the object they are looking at is just 2-3 feet from their face! Any further away and the item will look blurry to them.

  3. Russell–I’ve only been a follower of your blog for a few days, but I’ve already determined that it is a great service for man/womankind. I’ve determined from this post that cats are actually aliens among us. –John

  4. Let’s face it, everything is on their terms. The only time they are likely to come is if there is a treat waiting. Even with all their quirks, no other animal can purr and that is a wonderful sound and feel .

  5. well that kind of goes with cats right? They are not all sweet and cuddles. ha! Them kitties got claws! 😉

  6. Russell, great photos! And this week I actually had a couple of one of our cats that fit the cat-egory 😉 so added them to the re-blog.

  7. Hitchcocks birds! I was so scared of that film, but having watched it just the other night and it was rubbish! Funny what seems scary but wasn’t when you look back much like those cats eyes I suspect.

  8. Reblogged this on Three Dot … and commented:
    I have begun following this blog by Russell Deasley … I find it interesting and entertaining, especially on Caturday … here is this week’s feline Top 10 … “Laser Eyed Cats”!

  9. Spooky isn’t the word for it! How true, cats aren’t always puffs of fur and funny poses – they can look fierce, mean and scary as well. Always a good idea to be on the purring side than the fierce side. I read somewhere that when you call a dog, he is all over you and is delighted to see you. Call a cat and she will let it go to voicemail and maybe call you back.

  10. whoa! And here I thought my 2 were scary sometimes. I love the critters, but some of those pics would make me afraid, very afraid. Laser eyes for sure. 😉 (Oh yeah, a top 10 of purple cakes would be awesome!)

  11. n° 2 is like the stuff of nightmares. My boyfriend made me watch ‘The Grey’ with him last night, and those cats remind me of the wolves. *shudders*

  12. your #2 photo is amazing! I’ve seen plenty of these types of cat photos before, but many of the ones on your list are actually kinda creepy….i like it. 🙂

  13. didn’t know that about the cats eyes…interesting…always enjoy learning something new…! they look like something out of a si fi movie don’t they…

  14. Oh, my goodness, these made me laugh so hard! I have pictures of my cats doing this. I don’t know why it’s so funny… maybe partly because they just look so serious and have no idea why we’re laughing and/or screaming and running away? Or maybe just because, y’know. Laser eyes.
