Meet Oskar, the adorable blind cat

Simply adorable.

IT’S NOT EASY being a cat, never-mind being a blind one.

Little Oskar was born without fully formed eyes, but luckily for the smart kitty, every other sense is extra strong.

Owner Mick Szydlowski, or Mick12321kciM, established a YouTube channel to document his moments of discovery with sidekick Klaus, that has since recieved over 10 million views.

Oskar was even the proud winner of the Greatest Cat video of 2012 at The Friskies, a cat-video themed awards show. We can only imagine the diligent, hard work that goes into picking the finalists.

Here are a few highlights:
