The Weekly Catnip-Cats and Dogs

November 16, 2012

.

A little early because I will be busy playing with and getting to know a new laptop. And I’m not running out of cats, I just found these.

Maybe I should have said BIG DOGS.

This isn’t our house but we have had the pleasure of untangling 5 or 6 cats from what ended up to be 4 skeins of yarn.

Thanks for visiting. I hope you have an ‘Aaaaaawwww’ fully good weekend.

This is amazing. And so cool that they did it.

A British cat, Oscar, has made a full recovery after being fitted with a pair of prosthetic feet in November. The cat’s hind paws were severed by a combine harvester.

Oscar’s custom-made implants, ITAPs (Intraosseous transcutaneous amputation prosthetics), were modeled after deer antlers, which have a honeycomb structure that bones can grow through and skin can grow over.

By using computer-generated technology, a team of veterinarians and scientists designed a feline foot that mimics the way a cat walks and runs.
