Oscar! The Bionic Cat!


Recommended Posts

Amazing how well Oscar coped!! One of my cats had a problem with his hips, at 18 months they started to crumble, the vet said they could operate to remove the head of the femur to create a false joint, it meant him being caged for 4 months and two operations, my initial feeling was similar to Swissie, a lot of suffering for an uncertain outcome, but my vet was convinced it would be worth it. He put up with being in a cage with very bad grace, having always been an outdoors cat, but his recovery was fantastic and he was able to enjoy a full and satisfying life for another14 years, no sign of any problems with the joints in all that time, and finally succumbing to a heart disease inherited from his dad, the local tom!
