Oscar, the “bionic cat,” has become the first cat in the world to get two rear prosthetic legs. The groundbreaking operation was conducted by veterinary surgeon Noel Fitzpatrick. In a horrific accident just nine months ago, Oscar lost both of his back paws and nearly died.

The specially-built artificial limbs are attached in such a way that Oscar the bionic cat can walk, climb and run—all in less than four months after the operation.
