Meet Oscar, the bionic cat

Poor Oscar the cat had his back feet severed by a combine harvester. But then, thanks to vet Noel Fitzpatrick, he became the subject of a world-first operation to replace his lost legs with custom, bioengineered fake legs.

The legs, technically called intraosseous transcutaneous amputation prosthetics, were designed to mimic the way a deer's antlers grow through the skin. This allowed them to fuse with Oscar's existing bones and now let him run and frolic around just like any other cat.

You're one lucky feline, Oscar.
