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”.

  • Paws for thought on International Cat Day

    Videos of frolicking felines and gifs of purring pussies will be how most animal enthusiasts mark International Cat Day on Saturday. But for owners who believe their pets are scratchy, aggressive and mean, the problem is probably you, according to a Hong Kong-based cat consultant who has owned 50 in her lifetime, "a lot of the time it has more to do with the pet owners than the cats."

    Cola was grinning from ear to ear when he was fitted with prosthetics at a local animal shelter. The pup was only nine months old when a neighbor found him chewing on a pair of shoes in Bangkok and decided to hack off his legs with a sword about a decade ago. He has been legless ever since, that is, until the Soi Dog Foundation paid all medical expenses to get him up and running again.

  • Ce train est le premier TGV à concurrencer la SNCF en France

    TRANSPORT - Pour un premier voyage sans encombre face au TGV de la SNCF, la compagnie italienne Trenitalia aligne des prix bas, des fauteuils de cuir et des machines à café de compétition. Partie à 7h26 de la Gare de Lyon à Paris, la Frecciarossa (flèche rouge) 9281 est arrivée à Lyon à 9h18 le samedi 18 décembre, avec deux minutes d’avance, avant de poursuivre son chemin jusqu’en Italie. Pas de drapeaux ni de sirènes syndicales au départ pour protester contre l’arrivée sur les rails français du premier train à grande vitesse en concurrence frontale avec la SNCF. Seul problème, technique: les écrans de la gare ne peuvent pas encore afficher le logo rouge de Trenitalia. “Le train est plein”, se réjouit Roberto Rinaudo, le directeur général de Trenitalia France (ex-Thello). Un effet de curiosité, des prix attractifs et aussi la peur de la grève SNCF, finalement évitée in extremis, ont attiré les clients. ----- Abonnez-vous à la chaîne YouTube du HuffPost dès maintenant : https://www.youtube.com/c/lehuffpost Pour plus de contenu du HuffPost: Web: https://www.huffingtonpost.fr/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LeHuffPost/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/LeHuffPost Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lehuffpost/ Pour recevoir gratuitement notre newsletter quotidienne: https://www.huffingtonpost.fr/newsletter/default/
