The Caturday Report! Update On Oscar The Bionic Cat

"Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to build the world's first bionic cat. Oscar will be that cat. Better than he was before. Better, stronger, faster."

This incredible clip from Channel 4 show Supervet a cat walks again after his bionic foot was replaced in a unique procedure.

It's revealed that both of Oscar's back feet were chopped off by a corn harvester, making him the first feline in the world to have bionic limbs.

An entirely new foot had to be designed to fix him when the infection came back - and the vet's reaction when it works shows just how special this moment is.

Oscar was being teated by Noel Fitzpatrick as part of the new Channel 4 documentary series.
The Supervet airs tonight, Wednesday 7 May, at 8pm on Channel 4
