    Normally I dont really care about medical revelations nor do I care about people suddenly walking again but this, I actually found this cute! (in a manly way [​IMG])

    From what I gathered its a medical breakthrough because teh skin/flesh actually fully attached to the prostetic wich Ive never heard of before

    That just brought a tear to my eye [​IMG] I'm so happy for the cat [​IMG]

    Hopefully, we'll see more of this guy, because it's amazing to see how well the cat can walk with these bionic feet [​IMG]

    The cat probably can't jump onto anything of any real height and it's probably expensive, but the cat's fluid walking movement and apparent comfort definitely get thumbs up from me. This is pretty darned cool.

    Cute, I realize that the cat's life will be far more limited (from a cat's point of view anyway) but at least it can walk again.

    It really seems to have warmed up to the vets near the end of the video [​IMG]

    +1 I think the cat likes this more than no backlegs at all.

    SURGICAL HIGH FIVE, DUDE!

    I think the feet need an extension towards the front, as you can see he's walking on them at a slight angle.

    I think it kinda just happened. That's why they were so shocked.
