Oskar the blind cat doesn't know he's "handicapped" in the slightest degree. His "disability" hasn't stopped him from learning to play fetch in this adorable YouTube video, posted by his humans on Tuesday.
In it, Oskar shows his mastery of a simple game. For a dog.
Fetching is a behavior not seen in all felines. Pet owners know it's like having a dog in a kitty's body. What could be better than that?
Oskar obviously knows the lay of the land inside his comfy apartment. He fetches the little ringy ball toy without bumping into walls or furniture. Even in a darkened room. If ever a case were to be made for the evidence of heightened senses when one or more are disabled, this video is it.
The world has seen Oskar the blind cat before. His progress over the last two years is well documented. Videos showing him playing with his first toy, rough-housing with his inseparable buddy Klaus, and even playfully begging for a snack treat have gotten millions of views.
Somehow, this one seems to be the most impressive.
A fetching feline is one in a million.
A fetching feline, born without eyes?
What are the odds?
Here's the video:
