Can cats see in the dark?

The quick answer, in pitch black darkness NO. Cats have a great ability to be able to see even when something as small as a reflector is lighting a room. But, alas, they can not see in total darkness. Instead, a cat moves carefully, and uses its whiskers to let him know when he's approaching a wall. They also use their whiskers to feel air currents, and their tails for balance. A cat can tell by the temperature, or wind, whether they are inside or outside. They have really powerful eyes that can use the lighting of the stars and the moon; to be able to see outside in the night. If you haven't noticed cats do not like complete darkness, and they feel claustrophobic when locked in a pitch black box. Although cats have more rods in their eyes, which does improve their ability to see in the dark.
