Do cats see colours?

Silly question maybe but it just crossed my mind so I thought I'd see if anyone has an answer!

I read somewhere that cats do see in color but not exactly like us humans do
and that they see less saturation then we do..they also do not see colors as vibrantly and colors sure as blue and green are the strongest colors perceived by them.

Edit: heres that site i read that from.

cats see colors but they're color blind. That means that they see everything in blue green and some red. COlor blindess doesn't mean you see black and white, it means you can't distinguish the difference between colors.

My dad;s color blind. To him blue and green are pretty much the same thing. I think my dad sees blue trees :crazy:

I watched a program on Animal-Planet and they said,a cat sees everything in different shades of grey,as if it was always early evening:confused:
