INTERESTING FACT:   The pupils of cats’ eyes change to control the amount of light that enters the eye. They narrow to tiny slits in bright sunlight, but widen to large orbs when it is dark. That is why cats see so well in the dark. In addition, there is an area behind the retina that reflects light and that is why cats’ eyes appear to glow in the dark. What you are seeing is merely a reflection of what light there is and not the cat’s eyes glowing. A cat’s eyes will not glow in total darkness because there is no light for them to reflect.
