"I popped into the newsagent and there on the front page of our local daily newspaper was a picture of Oscar with the caption 'Meet the world's first bionic cat', with the full story appearing inside headed up, 'Puss in bionic boots'. I bought ten copies. The man in the shop looked at me quizzically. 'That's my cat!'"
When Kate Allan's beloved black cat, Oscar, is found lying severely injured in a field near their Jersey home, she is sure the accident-prone boy has met his end. With both hind legs severed by a combine harvester, Oscar's life hangs in the balance; luckily for him, his vet knows Noel Fitzpatrick, star of BBC One's "The Bionic Vet". Noel agrees to try pioneering surgery on Oscar to replace his legs with specially created prosthetics. Against all odds, Oscar comes back from the brink to become the world's very first bionic cat, and a feline celebrity.
