Oscar The Cat Gets Bionic Feet

Amazing!  Oscar lost his two back feet in a combine, but two, groundbreaking bionic feet are giving the cat a new life. Made me tear up for Oscar, but also for what this means for humans. What is remarkable about these feet is that the skin and bone have grown into the metal pegs.  This type of implant is called intraosseous transcutaneous amputation prosthetics (Itaps).
