Viral video of little boy trying to keep control of 5 kittens

CEDAR FALLS, IOWA - A video showing a little boy trying to keep control of five unruly kittens has gone viral gaining half a million views in less than a week.

The video was uploaded on Aug 11 and shows a little boy named Ryder attempting to keep five fluffy kittens all in one place as they run around in his garden in Iowa.

The video has gained popularity online because of how seriously Ryder seems to take his task.

At the end of the video, Ryder still had not managed to complete his task as one small kitten can be seen hiding in a bush in the distance.
