About this book

When Kate Allan's beloved black cat, Oscar, is found lying severely injured in a field near their Jersey home, she is sure the accident-prone boy has met his end. With both hind legs severed by a combine harvester, Oscar's life hangs in the balance; luckily for him, his vet knows Noel Fitzpatrick, star of BBC One's The Bionic Vet. Noel agrees to try pioneering surgery on Oscar to replace his legs with specially created prosthetics. Against all odds, Oscar comes back from the brink to become the world's very first bionic cat, and a feline celebrity.
