Injured Cat Gets New Feet (video)

A cat named Oscar lost his back feet when he was run over by a combine harvester. He was taken to a veterinarian in Surrey England who decided to try a first ever operation. First he fitted pegs to the cat’s back legs and waited till the bone grew to hold them.

Then, as you will see in the video, the vet fit new prosthetic feet—never before made for a cat. As the anesthetic wears off everyone in the room waits to see if he will walk again. Don’t wait; see him walking and exploring!

Thank goodness Oscar survived such a horrendous accident, and that they were able to get him to the vet in time. And to fashion legs for him. Wonderful !!!
