I don’t know that I am blind
Cats that are blind don’t now it. They behave as if they are sighted in fact. They are in effect. Their other senses, particularly of sound and smell take over and provide sight. It is almost as if Oscar in the video can see. I sense that Oscar is not depressed or frustrated about being blind. Oscar does not know that he is blind and if he does he takes it in his stride.

Perhaps Oscar was born blind…I have just learnt that he was born blind. His eyeballs were not formed properly.
I love the senses of cats and how they compensate. And I love the resolute character of cats and how they just get on with things.
