Most animals possess the ability to fend for themselves when they have to. Even our beloved indoor cats have a hidden wild instinct. They can hunt for food, find shelter, and easily adapt to various environments or situations they get into.
This especially applies to stray cats. They are toughened by street life and can mostly live a stray life for quite some time. However, for strays, life can become incredibly challenging when they suffer from injuries.
Injuries caused by people or car accidents, let’s say, almost always require medical attention and cats cannot survive without it. A similar thing happened to Pooh. He was found severely injured and abandoned in the streets of Sofia, Bulgaria.
Fortunately, Pooh received the medical care he needed which gave him a new chance in life.
The kind woman who found Pooh had no idea how he got injured. She simply lifted him and brought him to Vladislav Zlatinov, a skilled veterinary surgeon.
After examining Pooh, Dr. Zlatinov made the difficult decision to amputate Pooh’s hind legs.
Although aware of the risk of complications, and potential euthanasia, he had an incredible idea that he couldn’t wait to implement.
The idea seemed impossible, as feline prosthetics were not commonly seen. These things have been done before, but they sound impossible when it comes to felines…
However, fitting Pooh with prosthetics was a huge success. He has already adjusted well to his new legs. All thanks to this brilliant surgeon.
Pooh has adapted remarkably well to his new legs as the procedure was a success, and his recovery went smoothly. He can now move freely, walk, run, and even jump. Most importantly, Pooh is no longer in pain.
It’s truly remarkable how far we have advanced as a society, especially when compassionate individuals like Dr. Zlatinov step in to make a difference. Pooh’s journey portrays the power of human kindness and the incredible resilience of animals.
