Amputee Cat gets his Bionic Feet

Recommended Posts

from BBC News.

A cat that had its back feet severed by a combine harvester has been given two prosthetic limbs in a pioneering operation by a UK vet.




The origin of the half-cybernetic skyscraper demon and motherbrains with spider-legs. And the visually advanced dog-torso demon and self-propelled human faces.

I like this. That cat gets to walk again thanks to the marvels of science. I honestly don't care if it ultimately leads to brains-on-legs with plasma guns and vulcan cannons; as long as it means one more kitty gets to, well, be a kitty. =P

That looks more like a marvel of engineering. There probably isn't too much science there. Well, maybe the thing about the metal sticking out of his legs. That should be the real story.

I wonder what happens if he tries to jump onto things with those feet. I bet he's extremely clumsy at jumping. Cats are funny when they miss jumps.

That's why the prosthetic is such a breakthrough; they've managed to have the cat's skin grow into the metal without the biological rejection/risk of infection.

They aren't bionic

Even still, I was very much 'Awwwww, yay kitty' when I saw this.

Yay! The doctor pking around the metal bit made me feel sympathy pains for the cat, though.

Engineering is a product of science.

If it were my meow cat I would have killed it meow instantly rather than meow have it meow endure the pain and suffering.

I watched this video without sound, and couldn't help hearing "clang... clang... clang..." in my mind.

When they do it to a goat we'll worry.


I'd be more worried about these cows.
