Pioneering vet gives cat new prosthetic feet
A cat named Oscar that had its back feet severed by a combine harvester, has been given two prosthetics in a pioneering operation.
The new feet are custom-made implants that "peg" the ankle to the foot.
They are bioengineered to mimic the way deer antler bone grows through the skin.
The operation - a world first - was carried out by Noel Fitzpatrick, a veterinary surgeon based in Surrey, UK.
His work is explored in a BBC documentary called The Bionic Vet.
