• Cats are able to see in very low light. The flip side of this is that their pupils become extremely narrow in bright light. In addition, they may squint somewhat in bright sunlight. Unless your kitten appears distressed, I wouldn't worry about it. If she does seem distressed, she might have an eye infection.
  • I don't mean to scare you, but white cats with blue eyes are prone to blindness and deafness. Her eyes are probably very sensative to the bright light. You should take her to the vet to be checked out.
  • I don't know if this helps. I have very light blue eyes and am very sensitive to light, particularly sunlight. I read once that light blue eyes are more sensitive to light but I can't exactly remember why. But I would definitely take Grammy Robin's advice and take it to the vet to be checked out. It should go for a check up anyway to be sure it's healthy.
  • I had a white cat once, and he hated the sun because he got burnt very easily. Since white absorbs the entire color spectrum, UV rays find it easier to wiggle their way between the cat's fur and onto it's skull, body, nose. The vet told us to use sunscreen on him every time he needed to go outside. If you were wondering why a wild creature cannot handle the sun, it's because humans in the 1900's genetically modified domestic animals to be smaller, cuter, fluffier, a more distict color... they catered the animals to people's needs.
  • lack of a pair of raybans and all cats have poor day vision.
  • White cats can get skin cancer due to their genetics, so take care of him in the sun, make sure he is in the shade as much as possible. Also he possible is sensitive to sunlight, this is not abnormal for a white cat. The ears are most prone to skin cancer.
