Do cats see in black and white? What animals see in color?
Yes, cats can see color; in fact, most mammals see color. I believe that
many birds and fish also see color: species whose male and/or female are brightly
colored can generally see color. Nocturnal animals are an exception since night
vision uses the rods on the retina which cannot distinguish colors.
