Here’s a heartwarming story from Colorado: a tabby named Flipper had a twisted spine—a birth defect that paralyzed her rear legs. To save her from being euthanized, a local student robotics club designed a cat cart that enables her to get around like a normal cat.
A local news video (below) and a HuffPo piece (here) imply that Flipper is actually improving, and may regain use of her legs because the cart relieves pressure on her hips.
Kudos to the Blitz Robotic Club at Conifer High School, Conifer Colorado.
