You probably think: „How the hell did they build the first bionic cats??“ Well we will answer that question in this article, and there are two bionic cats, not one.
Two poor stray cats in the Bulgaria had lose their back legs in the accident. Only way to make their life much easier is to create bionic limbs for them. And they did. This was the first of the kind operation in the Europe outside Great Britain. And for the sake of this poor cats, it was succesfull.
The first cats name is Pooh, which in Bulgarian means „fluff“. And now the Pooh runs around the clinick like any ordinary cat, like the accident never had happened. Only difference between Pooh and any other cat is that Pooh has two tiny polymer-and-rubber paws that are mounted on titanium stems. The person that changed the Pooh`s life was veterinary surgeon Vladislav Zlatinov. He is a first ever veterenary surgeon in Europe that was able to apply the pioneering metod of Irish neuro-ortopaedic surgeon Noel Fitzpatrick. He become famous when in 2009. he made Oscar the cat the first bionic cat by giving him a pair of behind legs.
It tooked a month for Pooh to make first steps with his new legs. And vetenerian Zlatinov is very happy with the progress. Now Pooh is able to walk, jump and run, it still looks clumsy, but it is a much, much better then when poor Pooh had no behind limbs. Now only problem presents the danger of possible infection which will pass after the skin grows over exposed bone.
This is why we love modern science. It allows us to help people and animals in the way that was not possible in the past. If Pooh was born 30 years ago and had the same accident then he would probably be dead. But with the progress of the science, we are able to change that. We can help those poor animals to live their lives as best as possible, in some cases like they never had any kind of accident.
Also, this story shows how much we as people care about the animals, how they are part of our lives, they are part of the nature, the same way as we are. If a person hates animals, then we know that there is something wrong with them, especially if they torture the poor animals. That is the reason why we are here, why we good people are here to protect and care about poor animals that don`t have their own home, their own human….we need to show the love to those poor animals and they will repay us with their own love, believe us.

And the next time when you see the homeless animal in the street, do whatever you can to help them, how small it could be, it will be enough for them.
