Caturday: How Far Do Cats See?

The best seat in our house, if you are a cat, is the herb window in the kitchen. You are up in the trees so you get to watch the birds and the squirrels, as well as activity on the street. But do they really see all this stuff?

Cats see about 5X less accurately than humans, so what does Noel really see outside? That means that Noel’s ability to see things in the distance is much shorter than we humans. In exchange, she gets night vision superpowers. Cats see 1/6th of the light that we do.

“The back of a cat’s eye is lined with a reflective layer which helps bounce the incoming light back to photosensitive cells, stimulating them more than once. Thus they get more from the same amount of light. Unfortunately, this overstimulation also blurs the image: think of it as printing a page on the same piece of paper over and over again.” (How far can your cat see?)

This gives them greater night vision to hunt, but poor distance and day vision. Don’t worry though, Noel knows where I am at all times, but maybe that is because I smell like food.

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Caturday: Happy Catmas Review

Noel, the Christmas cat, is deep into the presents under the tree.

Nine is debating whether to attack her or get one of the stockings.

Petmas, or Catmas, or Dogmas, whatever you want to call it, the animals at DogDaz Zoo are covered when Santapaws comes down the chimney. Mom hangs the pet stockings over the stairwell and out of paws way so that they do not get eaten or destroyed.

Mini Cooper wants to ride the Polar Express or knock it over, I am not sure which.

A fine holiday was had by all pets at the Zoo.

We hope your Catmas was purrfect too!

Happy 2019 !

Caturday: Rare Glimpse of Stella

A rare video that Peanut took while she was sitting with Stella. Stella is such a lovey dovey girl to humans, it is a shame she does not like other cats so that she can’t be out in the general population. I think she would really enjoy all the people.

DogDaz Zoo: Sofie is 8!

It is amazing to me how time flies when it comes to age. Sofie Bear turns 8 years old today. My silly girl has been on a roller coaster of emotional/health issues for most of her years, but underneath it all, she is still my silly fluff ball who loves to roll in leaves and chase squirrels.

Happy Birthday, Sofie Bear! We would not be DogDaz Zoo without you!

Caturday: Don’t Eat That!

Caturday: Don’t Eat That!

Noel suffers from chewing everything she shouldn’t, especially plastic. She chews napkins, tissues, and any plastic wrappers or bags that she can find. She really likes those plastic airbags that come in Amazon packages. We do our best to ensure she does not have access to things that she can swallow, but we don’t always know what she will start gnawing on next. I think they call this eating disorder PICA, a need to eat non-food things like dirt or paper. That would be our Noel.
