Meet Oskar: The blind kitten who is now a YouTube star
By Kristen Seymour
TODAY.com contributor

When Mick Szydlowski and his wife, Bethany, hopped in the car to pick up an old autoharp they’d seen on Craigslist, they had no idea they’d be coming home with the next YouTube star. But it didn’t take long for the animal-loving couple to decide that Oskar, a blind kitten and the last of the litter belonging to the folks selling the autoharp, was coming back to Omaha with them.

The Szydlowskis already had one cat at home — Klaus, whom they’d adopted as an adult several years earlier — and they were interested in adding a second pet to their family. “Klaus was kind of our baby; I think a lot of people are like that with their pets,” Mick told TODAY.com. “We had tried to introduce him to other cats, including a kitten, in the past, and he was not very receptive to that. So, we really thought that, if we were going to get another pet, it was going to be a dog.”

Fate had other plans, though, and Oskar — who was born without fully-formed eyeballs — quite literally landed in their arms.
