The cat shattered his femur in the fall and required emergency surgery, [Animal Care Services spokeswoman Lisa] Norwood said.(from KSAT-12)
Without the surgery, the cat would have either had to have its leg amputated or would have had to be euthanized, Norwood said.
The cat, who was named Rocky, now has the feline version of a bionic leg, with pins holding his broken bones together.
Pins. They count as bionics. At least with cats.
Hell, if that's true, then go ahead and implant an RFID tag and call that cat a cyborg.
