Amputee Cat Just Got New Legs, And Now There’s No Stopping Him.

Stray animals do not get the love and care they deserve. Instead, they roam the streets playing a game of survival of the fittest. They venture out each day to seek for food and shelter. It may seem like a tolerable life for an animal, but what happens when the animal suddenly becomes injured? How will he or she heal without the proper care and treatment?

Thankfully, our world is filled with good samaritans who rescue injured animals they encounter. Pooh, for example, is a stray kitty who is now an amputee cat after a tragic incident. If it weren't for the kind woman who found Pooh and rushed him to the clinic, he might have not made it.

What exactly happened to Pooh is still a mystery. However it is likely that he was either hit by a car or even a train in a small Bulgarian village.

The kind woman that saved Pooh rushed him to a clinic in Sofia, Bulgaria's capital. There, he was examined by surgeon Vladislav Zlatinov.

Zlatinov knew that amputating Pooh's back legs high up could end up euthanizing the poor kitty if it didn't work.

Instead, the surgeon came up with an alternative solution.

He decided to do something innovative -- attaching prosthetics to Pooh, ultimately giving him brand new legs.
