This is the tale of Pooh. Actually no, not Winnie, Pooh the feline who was saved from being euthanised after he has gotten to a hospital in Bulgaria by a caring lady.
In spite of his injuries, Doctor Dr Vladislav Zlatinov thought that it could be conceivable to save his hind legs, but Dr Zlatinov found that the legs would have to be amputated.
Surgeries like this can cause entanglements for the patient, usually ending in the animal being put down, so he thought about different ways to save this cat.
His splendid idea was to utilize prosthetic legs, like what human amputees use, to enable Pooh to walk once more.
He told: ‘I had the vague idea that this is done sometimes, but it sounded impossible for our practice. But I wanted to try.’ And in trying he created a new life for Pooh.
The feline would now be able to walk and climb and bounce (not too far though) with the painless joy and freedom that most animals experience.
Dr Zlatinov said: ‘Pooh can move freely on flat surfaces, walking, running, even making small jumps. What’s important is that he doesn’t seem to be in pain.
