A deformed kitten found in rural Langley, B-C, will be fitted with prosthetic blades in a groundbreaking procedure. Veterinarians at a Vancouver animal hospital have treated the kitten's back-limb muscles to relax them for the best fitting. Neurologist Mike Higgins says the procedure has never been performed before. (The feral kitten named Cassidy was found at about nine-weeks old starving and dragging itself around using just its front legs.)
