what does it mean...

When a cat's pupils are extremely dialated and it's not playing or chasing anything?? I've been waking up to find Jake staring at me with huge pupils...could there be something wrong with him? I hope it doesn't mean that he is in pain....I'm scared I've never seen him have pupils like that, even in the midst of play they are not that big!

No the room has been pretty light..I mean it's hard to know whether he was trying to play or not, but I don't think he was.

lol I just tried to take a pic of his eyes to see if I can ask everyone whether they are normally dilated for a kitty that's just resting, but as soon as the flash on the camera came on his pupils got small....

Lol it was just temporary tho during the flash his pupils contracted and then got bigger again!! I was just trying to say it's impossible to take pic of him with his pupils like that. I think it must have been from the wind outside tho ..It was so windy yesterday that I think it scared him because you could hear the wind from outside. When I woke up this morning he was very peaceful.

It wasn't that dark...It was at night and I had a light on..but they are normal now. I don't know if I can speculate as to what could be wrong because he has no other symptoms. Maybe his loud breathing but I'm not sure if that's legitimate because he has had two check ups and the vets haven't said he is breathing is abnormal but it seems kinda loud to me.

If you think something is strange you can call the vet for advice.

Honestly, it is probably lack of light. I mean, im just going by what i know about light and pupils dialating..

Like you said it was night time and you had a light on. Right now its night time and i have a light on, the room has plenty of light, but looking at Monsters pupils, they are huge. So i think its just that the room isnt as bright as it is during the day and thats why they are so large.. Just my two cents.

My cats pupils dilate whenever they're excited, mad, upset, etc. Today I had to give one of my babies a pill, and his pupils dilate HUUUUUUUUGE when I have to hold him down and force him to chew the tab. Then he calms down, and forgives me, and they go back to normal. Wow, that sounded kinda mean lol
