Bionic Cat Gets Prosthetic Paws

The Scoop: Oscar Walks Again as the World's First Bionic Kitty

Now usually when pets have accidents that injure their back legs, they're attached to a wheelchair-type rolling device so that they can still move around. That's not the case with Oscar, who lost both hind paws to an accident back in October. A talented surgeon created metal peg legs and embedded them straight into the bone for this feline. Coated with a substance to help bone cells develop directly over them, now both bone and skin have grown over the connecting areas, allowing this kitty to move almost normally once again. Look at him go in the video below!

That's totally amazing to see this cat walking thanks to technology!! :) Really hope that this kind of prothesis will be proposed to other cats and dogs! :)

Its amazing this new technology that these surgeons have developed. Now cats or even dogs relatively soon in the future could possibly have prothesis. I was so blown away and brought to tears by this video. This gives the cat a better quality of life. I love it.
