I do. She was my wife’s cat when we got married , but switched her affections to me when she realised I had a much more meat based diet.*I don't use my cats fur to tie flies!
Get a powerful magnifying glass/low power microscope and the hair won't look anything like that.
The colours you are seeing are the result poor focus. You can see the same sort of thing with any hair/fibre and out of focus close ups.
There might also be an element of diffraction going. Hold any reasonably thin feather close to your eye and look at a light bulb (a lit one...) through it and diffraction will give you the full rainbow of colours. However this doesn't mean a fly tied with the same feather looks like it is all the colours of the rainbow...
We used to have a British Blue cat. When we brushed him, we got lots of nice blue/grey fur for tying flies, and plenty of long guard hair for tails*I don't use my cats fur to tie flies!
Just fascinated at the colours in natural materials compared to dyed, she's not having chunks cut off her...no matter how tempted I am after seeing this

You tell me, does anyone know exactly what a fish see's ? Like I said I was fascinated by the colours on natural materials and wondered if fish would pick them up, I didn't think I had a magic cat with a coat of mystical colours professor kodak.OK... do fish have 100 x zoom eyesight?
