The visual acuity of kittens was determined behaviorally by training them to respond to high contrast, square-wave gratings with a modified Lashley jumping stand. Spatial frequencies between .25 and 12.00 cycles per degree were used and an average visual acuity of 5.0 cpd was found. This result conforms with values found by other investigators.
