New Life For Oscar

Pretty Awesome!
Doctor Noel Fitzpatrick, known as the Bionic Vet from Surry, UK, has given a cat a new life in a groundbreaking surgery. Oscar the cat was nearly killed after his hind legs were severed in a combine accident. Dr. Fitzpatrick successfuly bio-engineered peg implants that have grown through the bone and skin of the cat, similar to the way antlers grow through a deers skin. The pegs allow prothstetic paws to be attached and Oscar can now walk again.
