Cat story of the day

Student project helps disabled kitten walk

Thanks to a robotics club at a high school in Colorado, life couldn't get any more purr-fect for this disabled kitten.
With help from students at Conifer High School, Flipper, a cat with a twisted spine, can try to walk and do other things other cats do, tech site Mashable reported.
"The students created a harness that allowed Flipper's hind legs to stay erect, giving the cat a chance to strut around the clinic as she pleases," it said.
A video of the device in action was posted on YouTube.
