10 tips for Pet Owners Share How They Find Out Their Pet Can See Something They Don’t

For most pet owners, there is a point in a pet’s life when they realize that their dog or cat can see something they don’t. This can be anything from a barking dog that keeps interrupting their sleep to a cat that keeps smelling a certain scent in the house. Whether your animal can see things other than what you are seeing is part of what makes pets so special and unique. When your pets see something that you can’t, check out these stories of eye-opening adventures.

1. Discuss how they first became aware their pet could see something they couldn’t.

When I first became aware that my pet could see something I couldn’t, it was really surprising. I think it’s because she’s always been my best friend, so she’s always telling me little secrets about things going on around the house. She also knows what I’m thinking about more often than I do myself. My cat, Sid, has always been a lap cat and he has a very keen sense of smell, but when my other cat died I was feeling down and the only way I could stop myself from crying was by hugging him. He got up close to my face and put his head on my shoulder and started purring. He seemed so upset that even though I had no more tears left in me they came rushing out through my eyes in blinks like dirty water from a burst canal.

2. Share how they found out their pet could see in the dark.
Next time you think your pet can’t see in the dark, they’ll be sure to show you!

It’s common to believe that your pet can see in the dark, but it often takes someone else to prove it. You may think that your little buddy would be the last person to see something when others are asleep. Your dog can actually “see” things when there is no light – no matter what kind of light exists in the area. The light doesn’t have to be bright; it just has to be there.

I found out my cat could see in the shadows after he followed me around for about 5 minutes and then jumped on a chair.

Then without hesitation he returned to his spot near me.

5. Share how they found out their pet could see in the rain.

When my dog first saw the light, I was hysterical. She’s a rescue and had lived her entire life in darkness. One day we were out for a walk when I noticed something off about the lamp post.

By some strange alchemy, she was able to tell their exact burnout level and even their internal color!

She is at ease while enjoying an afternoon snooze when it’s cloudy outside!

We know that our pets see in the dark, but only now did I realize how powerful and amazing that ability is. Not only could I see her every move from all angles but she could also sense when someone was around her. She knew when I needed to come home, or if there were strangers in the house.
