'Oskar' the Blind Kitten Plays With His First Toys



Oskar the blind kitten may be handicapped, but it doesn't seem to stop him from doing most of the things cats with sight can do. Maybe even better, according to his humans!



In the video, Oskar is minding his own business, lolling in a warm spot by the wall. The camera can't help but reveal there's obviously something wrong with his eyes. And, as his owner posts, he was indeed born without fully developed eyeballs.

Suddenly, one of those cute toys is rolled in front of the blind kitten, and he sparks into action. Whatever the instinct awakened (are there cute rolly toys with bells inside in the wild?) it's clear that Oskar has just found a new, favorite pastime.

As the video plays out, it's plain that Oskar is capable of following the errant toy all around the familiar space. Indeed, as his owner points out in the comments from adoring viewers the world over, Oskar's other senses are all the more sharpened, giving him incredible senses of hearing and smell.

It's nice to know that Oskar the blind kitten is so well cared for. Hopefully, there will be more videos posted chronicling Oskar's journey into adult cathood.

In the meantime, here's a real heartwarmer to enjoy...

  1. O Oskar é muito fofo e esperto, mas tem um blog de um gatinho brasileiro que também é cego e sobe até em árvore ! E os pais dele colocam garrafas plásticas pra ele não subir na árvore. É o diariodeumgatocego.blogspot.com vale a pena conhecer o Iruka !

  2. Que coisinha mais linda!
    É emocionante ver como esses bichinhos superam suas limitações!
    E pensar que muitos são descartadados por causa delas.

    Beijos e que São Francisco derrame suas bênçãos sobre o Oscar e sua família

    Com carinho,
    Diulara e família felina
