Blind Kitten Plays With Toys For First Time [Video]

Cats are adorable. Cats with toys are more adorable. But, this video of a blind kitten playing with toys for the first time ever is both the most adorable and most heart-warming thing I've ever seen.

The kitten's name is Oskar, and he was given several balls with bells inside them so he'd be able to track them easily. Watch as he quickly realizes that this is a pretty fun thing to do after the jump!

Dog Is A Better Jump-Roper Than Most Humans! [Video]

Think about it, when was the last time you jumped rope? I can confidently say that I haven't picked one of them up since I was probably 12-years-old, so I'm pretty out of practice. When I was a kid, I was always jealous of the people who could double dutch, because I couldn't figure it out. And now I'm jealous of this dog for that same reason.

Geronimo is a 2-year-old cattle dog mix that her owners rescued from a shelter. Not only is she able to double dutch better than most humans, she can also catch a frisbee in mid-air and then do a back flip. I'm not kidding. Check out the video after the jump!

A man in La Crescenta, California was texting while walking down his driveway when he came face to face with a black bear. Lucky for all of us, a news helicopter was following the bear through the neighborhood, so the hilarious encounter was caught on video!
