Several readers send in the news of Oscar, the first bionic cat, whose hind paws got cut off in a harvester accident. In a world’s-first operation, a neurosurgeon has now given him exoprosthetic paws that are implanted directly into his leg bones. The BBC artlcle has a video captured just after the operation, and PopSci has an apparently later one in which Oscar is walking and running almost completely normally.
