A cat whose back legs were chopped off in a farming accident has been given a new bionic pair, in a ground-breaking feline first in the country.
Two-and-a-half year old Oscar lost at least one of his nine lives when he was run over by a combine harvester last October -- but eight months later he has regained a spring in his step.
The prosthetic paws were fitted by neuro-orthopaedic surgeon Noel Fitzpatrick, in a three-hour operation involving grafting the replacement legs onto the stumps

It seems a little odd with a cat, especially since the furry felines are so tuned-in to their bodies and light on their feet. I wonder how the little critter is going to handle these bionic feet and how it will affect his psychologically, if at all. This has got to screw with his head.
Also, how cool would that be, to have a cat with bionic feet? They should take this little guy around to hospitals to inspire children with prosthetic limbs.
