Cats and Dogs Can See ‘The Invisible’, New Study Suggests

Many different types of animals have the ability to see in frequencies that we humans cannot. Until now it was thought that animals could not see, UV rays but evidence is changing that.

This evidence comes from a study that was carried out just a few years ago by biologists at City University London, US. In this study, it was shown that cats, dogs, and other mammals seem to see in UV light. UV light is the wave length beyond the visible light from red to violet that we humans can see.

“Cats, dogs, and other mammals are thought to see in ultraviolet light, which opens up a whole different world than the one we see, the study explains.

UV light is the wave length beyond the visible light from red to violet that humans can see. Humans have a lens that blocks UV from reaching the retina. It was previously thought that most mammals have lenses similar to humans.

Scientists studied the lenses of dead mammals, including cats, dogs, monkeys, pandas, hedgehogs, and ferrets. By researching how much light passes through the lens to reach the retina, they concluded that some mammals previously thought not to be able to see UV actually can.”

There seems to be much more to this than we might initially think. Has your pet ever seemed to be looking at something or someone you could not see? My dogs sure do. It happens all the time.

Could our pets be seeing “spirits” or forces of some sort? I believe there is a strong chance there is something more to it. While this study itself was not on whether animals could see spirits or not it proved they do have much more going on in their eyes than we initially thought.

“It is obvious that animals are in tune with something we are not even without this evidence.”

Many studies that have been carried out on the senses of dogs offers quite a debate on the psychic abilities and sensory perceptions of them. There is, of course, no way to know what is really going on because we cannot communicate on the level we would need to for confirmation.
