Pooh the Amputee Cat Gets New Prosthetic Paws


Meet Pooh, a cat who lost his hind legs after being hit by a car. Pooh is now walking again thanks to a one-of-a-kind operation that saw him get fitted with some special prosthetic paws in Bulgaria's capital Sofia. The ten-month-old cat’s new legs, made of polymer and rubber, were produced and implanted in Bulgaria. Following the operation, Pooh regained all of his lost weight and is playing like old times. The operation cost around $1,600 and was paid for by donations given to the animal rescue organisation “Let's Adopt Bulgaria”.
