Photo Viewing Tips
Cat Colors and Patterns in Infrared
Most surveillance cameras use infrared night vision, which appears black and white. Your cat might not look how you expect in infrared. For example, orange cats often appear white and black cats may have spots or stripes.
Orange Cats in Infrared
Orange cats may appear bright white or light gray in infrared light. If a tabby, their stripes may not be visible. This also applies to the orange fur on tortoiseshell and calico cats.
Black Cats in Infrared
Black cats may appear dark or light gray in infrared photos. But some black cats will have stripes or spots. This happens when a black cat is really a black on black tabby. This pattern is often not visible to the naked eye, but may be visible in bright sunlight.
