Blind kitty gets his first toy

(CBS) - Meet Oskar. Oskar was born completely blind, his eyeballs never formed. But his loving owners haven't let that stop them from providing Oskar with a good life. He's also become a bit of a celebrity cat, with a thriving YouTube channel and thousands of admirers. It's easy to see why. Watch this adorable feline get his first toy, and just try not to smile.

As his owners explain in the YouTube description:

I took this video the day after we adopted him. Since he is completely blind (born without formed eyeballs) we gave him some balls with bells inside. As you can tell, he can "see" them by using his ears! He is such a happy and inspiring cat -- we are blessed to have him with us.

Here's another video of Oskar playing. This time he's got a hold of a hairdryer.
