SocialTimes has more: “The grand prize winner of The Friskies Awards was none other than Oskar, an adorable little blind cat playing with a green ball.  Oskar the cat has his own Facebook page with nearly 90,000 likes,his own website, and now his owners have $15,000 to spend on toys and catnip for him and his big cat brother Klaus.”
