We often see stray cats living in the street with bruises and deformed body parts. Some of them manage to live with the difficulties, while sadly some don’t survive.
This cat’s story will make you feel that nothing is impossible in life.
Meet Ryzhik, an abandoned cat who lost all four of his paws and still survived a -40C winter in Siberia.
The real question is how did he make it? His new owners took him to get medical treatments and they found out that his paws needed to be removed. Usually in situations like that the vet puts cats to sleep but his new owners were motivated to provide him a good life.
His parents took him to a special clinic to get him a new set of titanium feet. They were brilliantly made by an advanced computer tomography and the famous 3D modeling.
Ryzhik’s Vet said that he is the first cat to ever experience such surgery. The hero cat who survived so much, has a hard time walking on his new paws, it takes time to get used to it. His parents say that although he struggles, he hasn’t tried to remove his new titanium feet so that’s a good sign.
Ryzhik is an inspiration for the special clinic who treated him, these days, they try to use the technique they used on Ryzhik to make limbs to birds and help more animals as well.
Another cat named Fluffy, shared a similar story to Ryzhik’s. She was found frozen in the snow in Montana. Luckily her owners found her and took her to the clinic right away.
Her Vet, Dr. Jevon Clark said that her body temperature was so low that the thermometer couldn’t register it. So they tried to warm her up, and after a few long hours, they managed to cure her.
the Animal Clinic of Kalispell posted: “Amazing success and survival story from this week. Some clients found their injured cat buried in snow.”
“They brought her to us essentially frozen and unresponsive. Her temperature was very low but after many hours she recovered and is now completely normal. Fluffy is amazing!”
