Cats have a reflective layer in their eyes, known as
the tapetum lucidum, which magnifies incoming light allowing them to
see up to 6 times better than humans can in low light. Cats (as well
as dogs) also have a ‘third eyelid’ called the nictitating membrane
which is found on the inside corner of the eye which is an extra
protective function of the eye.
