Introducing Oscar, the World's First Bionic Cat
A British cat named Oscar has a new shot at life after being successfully outfitted with a pair of revolutionary prosthetic limbs.
Class discussion: The key here, according to the video, is that the prosthetic fused with Oscar's skin and hair rather than being rejected by the body as an infection. How soon, do you think, this new advance might help human amputees? Do you know anyone who is an amputee? In what special ways do they cope with their condition?
