New Arm Bones for Harvey the Kitten

(YouTube link)

Harvey was born with radial agenesis, which in his case means his forearm bones failed to develop. He came to the attention of Cats Protection in Glasgow, Scotland, when his owner placed an ad to sell the kitten and mentioned he had two broken legs. The charity found Harvey was a good candidate for reconstructive surgery, in which metal will be inserted as his forearm bones. Cats Protection raised the necessary £3000 in three days after a public appeal. Harvey won't receive the surgery until he is six months old, so his existing bones will be mature enough to support the pins. Meanwhile, the four-month-old cat is living in a foster home, where he gets along fine on his elbows for now. Link -via Arbroath
