Cat Found Frozen and Thought for Dead Before Being Fitted With Four Brand New Paws In ‘World First’

Abandoned cat named Ryzhik was in -40C temperatures in Siberia, causing gangrene in his feet which led to him having his paws removed. Normally, injuries like this would result in the cat being put down, but one dedicated team of vets stepped in and saved the day.

A veterinarian named Sergey Gorshkov told the Siberian Times: “He is definitely the first cat in the world who experienced such surgeries. The limbs have fully connected with the skin and bone.
