Blind kitten gets a new pair of (googly) eyes

No animals were harmed in the making of this video.

"Vink is a 5-month-old kitten who is blind. He was found on the streets of Greece and thanks to 'Athene Stray Kittens, he found his forever home with me. Vink is a very energetic, happy kitten who loves life! He also loves his crazy cat mum. Who, sometimes, makes a bit fun of him, but Vink is okay with that. Vink has no eyes, and wasn't harmed in this video! As you can tell of his body language."

Autotuned cat and dog

There's finally a good use for autotuning; use it to enhance your pet's vocals.

Animator Joaquin Baldwin (previously on BB) did just that. He autotuned his cat Elton using an app called Voloco. It's really funny!

Elton's not the only pet who got autotuned. In fact, it seems it may have started with a howling dog named paco:

Cat digs massage from severed Halloween hand

This is Kiko the cat. Her human companion, Leah Piercey of Newfoundland, Canada, has just learned that Kiko enjoys getting her rump massaged by a severed, mechanical crawling Halloween hand.

Cat-sized camping tents

If you've ever stood in the camping section of a big box store and wondered how you could snag one of those miniature display tents for your pet, wonder no longer. Enter Cat Camp, an Australian company that has created teeny tiny tents for indoor cats. Their Cat Tents ($59.95) pitch like a human-sized tent but, to be clear, these are for inside the house, not the great outdoors.

We set out to create the most unique, high-quality cat bed. This product is modeled on full-size tent and made to look just like the real thing. Cat Camp is a great addition to any house and a cozy hideaway for all cats.

Cats love small, dark and comfy places - this behavior is instinctive so they can hide from predators and they naturally feel safe when the walls of a box or tent come into contact with their little furry bodies.

The cute, it hurts!

Cat bath rapper

Portland, Oregon's MSHO not only takes baths with his cat "DJ Ravioli" (which seems like a terrible idea, but let's overlook that for now), but raps to him in the process. It's pretty cute if you aren't watching and waiting for the other claw to drop.

MSHO (aka the Cat Rapper) doesn't just make cat videos in the bathtub, he's got a whole YouTube channel of him singing, on dry land, about his five cats.

Couple shares strange furbaby 'childbirth' photos

On Saturday, Lucy Schultz of Denver, Colorado shared touching, intimate photos of her childbirth.

Well, not technically.

What she shared was a hilarious album of her pretending to give birth to the baby kitten she and her boyfriend Steven recently adopted.

The new mom wrote:

On 1/10/18 we welcome our first baby kitten, a neutered male DLH. He is 22" long and weighed 6 pounds 7 oz. He is already eating solid food. Name to be announced. We are so in love <3

A professional photographer herself, Shultz told Denver's 9News:

“So I’ve been thinking of this idea for a while because I’m totally a crazy cat lady who didn’t have any cats. So, I decided as soon as I got a cat, it’s a big milestone for me and sort of like the hallmark of me settling down and starting my menagerie of future cats, and so the first one is pretty special.”

Without further ado, here are some of their (mildly NSFW) photos:

The full set of 28 photos, taken by Elizabeth Woods-Darby, has, of course, gone viral. As of this writing, the album has been shared nearly 75K times.
