Everyone, meet Vincent–a two-legged cat who walked for the very first time after he got fitted with very rare prosthetic legs from the Iowa State University.
Vincent was surrendered to the Story County Animal Shelter in Iowa when he was just little. Cindy Jones, a woman who worked there, saw Vincent and immediately fell in love with him. So she took Vincent home with her. Vincent was missing two of his hind legs, and since Cindy loved him so much, she wanted to help Vincent walk.
Her love for Vincent led her to the Iowa State University where Dr. Mary Sarah Bergh, and veterinary orthopedics company BioMedtrix decided to design implants for Vincent.
Watch the video below and see how Vincent got his legs and walked for the very first time!
According to the YouTube video description, the procedure that Vincent went through is so rare, that Dr. Bergh estimates fewer than 25 animals in the world have ever had a similar surgery.
So a big thank you to everyone who helped Vincent walk! You guys are truly amazing!
