Oscar: The Bionic Cat

An unfortunate feline name Oscar had an accident about nine months ago when a combine harvester ran him over while he napped in a field, severing the bottom part of his two back legs. But fortunately Oscar found a doctor who can fixed his amputated leg.

When Oscar lost his leg a local vet, Peter Haworth, consulted another vet, Noel Fitzpatrick of Surrey, England, who has an advanced practiced on Oscar case. After a few examination they found out that Oscar was a good candidate for a cutting-edge new procedure that Fitzpatrick had been developing, a bionic cat legs. It is called intraosseous transcutaneous amputation prosthetics (ITAPs), and they're drilled it right into Oscar's amputated leg. They protrude down as stumps while the other ends are designed so that his skin will grow around them, making a sterile seal.

The operation took about three hours and the ITAPs, costing £2000 each ($2,987). And because of the successful operation Oscar can now run and jump about as cats should do. Oscar's owners, Kate and Mike Nolan said "We had to do a lot of soul-searching and our main concern has always been whether this operation would be in Oscar's best interests and would give him a better quality of life."
