I'm not going to put brown feet on a black cat
Bionic cat
A cat that had its back feet severed by a combine harvester has been given two prosthetic limbs in a pioneering operation by a UK vet.

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.

Link thanks to Dave Bell.

"He's not supposed to do that the first time he walks on them." I love that the cat's first reaction is to try climbing or jumping up on stuff. New feet? What the heck, let's find out what happens; what's the worst that can happen?

That may be the coolest thing I've seen today.
