I first saw this over at icanhascheezburger.com, the website that posts funny pictures and videos of cats, but this video is different. It will bring a real smile to your face, and maybe a tear to your eye. Here’s some information provided by the video’s original uploaders to describe what you’ll see:
A cat named Oscar that had its back feet severed by a combine harvester, has been given two prosthetics in a pioneering operation.
The new feet are custom-made implants that “peg” the ankle to the foot.
They are bioengineered to mimic the way deer antler bone grows through the skin.
The operation – a world first – was carried out by Noel Fitzpatrick, a veterinary surgeon based in Surrey, UK. His work is explored in a BBC documentary called The Bionic Vet.
Just goes to show you can’t keep a good kitteh down! You go, Oscar!
