Baby the Bionic Cat

Baby the Bionic CatAn accident-prone moggy has been dubbed the "bionic cat" now that she has metal implants in each of her four limbs.

As this X-ray show, the six-year-old cat, named Baby, needed extensive surgery on her injuries and yesterday, staff gave her the all-clear.

Baby was taken to the hospital in September after falling from a third floor window for the second time at her owner's home in south London.

Staff found she had suffered multiple fractures in both back legs before discovering from an X-ray that she already had metal implants in both front legs, which had been inserted after a similar plunge when she was a kitten. "Baby is extremely lucky to be alive," said Jess Gower, Blue Cross chief veterinary surgeon at the hospital, who carried out the latest operations.

"Amazingly, she has healed extremely well and can already move around very well. We hope that in around eight weeks, when we take off the frame, she will move as normal and you'd never know what happened to her."
