Video: kitten vs. hairdryer


Some cats like to spend their days lazing on the sofa or haplessly chasing birds round the garden.

Oskar, on the other hand, likes to indulge in what can only be described as an epic (and undeniably cute) battle with a hairdryer.

The five-month-old kitten has become a YouTube hit after he was filmed putting his shadow boxing skills to test on the electric blower.

As his owners explain, Oskar was born with no formed eyeballs and so is completely blind - but that certainly doesn't hold him back when it comes to flaunting his kitty muscle.

The one-minute video shows Oskar waging war against the hairdryer with all the veracity of a feline Muhammad Ali.

Watch the footage in full, below.
