My Creation, Is It Real?

We can rebuild him! We have the technology. The Six Million Dollar Cat!

Oscar is the world's first bionic cat. After an accident that resulted in the severing of his two hind legs, Oscar's prospects were not good. Most quadripeds can get along with only 3 legs, but losing the support for the entire back half of his body is too much for a cat to live without. Veterinarian Noel Fitzpatrick created revolutionary implants featuring a honeycomb pattern with which Oscar's skin could bond. Oscar's new implants have a reduced risk of infection because that bond between flesh and metal is complete. He is still being monitored and getting used to his new legs but his recovery so far has been astounding.
