Oskar the Blind Cat

My uncle sent me a link to an article and video about a kitten and its owners in his area that have become something of a internet sensation. Oskar the cat was born without eyes, but that certainly hasn't stopped this little guy from living life to the fullest. I am such a cat person, I have to admit that watching these videos brought tears to my eyes -- this little guy is amazing! Click here to read the news article about Oskar and his owners, and here are some of his videos --

Oh my! Isn't he the cutest thing? Wow. Kudos to him for not letting anything stop him and kudos to his owners for allowing such a sweet soul to shine on :)

Aw, cute little kitteh.

I had a dog that was blind. We couldn't move the furniture around or she would walk into it; otherwise she seemed like a pretty normal dog.

@Juju - He's so adorable. Glad you enjoyed the videos! :)

@heidenkind - Isn't it amazing how they adapt?

Absolutely adorable. :) Had seen the phrase "Oskar the blind kitten" before, but not any actual pictures or videos. Sure put a smile on my face, so thank you for sharing! My li'l one isn't quite as playful - and indeed, is completely ignoring the tree. :)

@Traxy - You're welcome, glad you enjoyed the videos! I am thankful that any cats I've had have ignored trees, believe me! ;)
