Although mainstream scientists have already accepted the fact that cats, dogs and other animals are capable of seeing frequencies that people aren’t, it is still both amazing and surprising to think more deeply about what this really means. Specifically, animals like cats and dogs have the ability to see UV light waves, while the retina within the human eye doesn’t have the same ability. Years ago mainstream scientists have been able to suppose that the eyes of mammals functioned the same way as the eyes of humans as humanity was considered to be an “evolved species”. But, it is now clear that this isn’t the case.
A study done by biologist at University in London, UK reveals in-depth information regarding this amazing phenomenon. Considering this, Pet MD writes, “Have you ever felt that your cat or dog can see something you don’t? Well, you may be right, according to a new study. 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 wavelength beyond the visible light from red to violet that humans can see.”
What`s more, “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.”
Even though science speaks for itself, there are many people who claim that there are metaphysical aspects associated with these abilities of cats, dogs, and other animals. For example, there have been many instances in which animals act strangely as a result of seeing things the human eye cannot spot, particularly after mutual loved ones have died or other tragic events have happened. Cats have been said to meow strangely, to chase invisible things, to bat their claws and paws into empty air, and to hiss to invisible things.
Even if there could be another explanation for all of these things, such as animals reacting strangely to interacting with UV light, how can any of this be explained at night time or indoors where there isn’t any UV light present? In addition, there are accounts of people claiming to see “shadow people.” This is particularly common among people suffering from sleep paralysis. Want to hear something even spookier? Many people have reported seeing these entities at moments when their pets started acting strangely; as a matter of fact animals have been reported to run away in such situations.
Turns out, following your pets is a good idea!
