I love the color of Eddy's eyes (then again, I love the color of all cats' eyes). On certain days, in certain lighting, and all that jazz, Eddy's eyes are almost like an exceedingly pastel aquamarine. She has the palest eyes of any cat in the family, and I think they're beautiful.
Of course, Eddy snapped this selfie for the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop, hosted by the Kitties Blue over at The Cat on My Head.
Happy Sunday, friends!
Doodle of the Day:
As I've mentioned over the past couple of days, lately I've been feeling inspired to scribble up doodles of a more magical sort. In particular, I've been sketching up some Harry Potter-esque doodles, but with cat-centric subject matter. Today's doodle of this sort looks somewhat similar to yesterday's, and that's because I created them simultaneously and indecisively.
Did you know?Did you know that, because a cat's eyes are disproportionately large compared to their body, a cat can't see anything less than roughly a foot in front of them? This would explain why a cat can focus in on prey from a distance, but can't manage to find the treat you just placed right in front of their face. The size and resulting composition of a cat's eyes is in large part why they simply can't see or focus on something placed directly in front of them. To help your kitty find a nearby treat or toy they can't locate, try putting it in motion or moving it to a farther distance.
