Cat to be fitted with prosthetic leg

This Morning

Do you remember Steve Austin, the six million dollar man? Well he’s going to have to make room for a very special kitty cat named Sophia.

Sophia is a rescue cat from San Diego who will be receiving a new bionic leg.

Sophia was adopted by Karolyn Smith, along with her new brother Leonidas.

She lost her leg when she was found with her umbilical cord wrapped around her paw.

Smith was an Army sergeant, and says the transition home from Iraq was difficult.

She hopes that after Sophia receives her new leg, she can help veterans who are suffering with PTSD as a therapy pet.

A company called Fab Lab is making the artificial leg for Sophia, and she will become for the first cat to receive to one.

On ABC9 News This Morning, Jessica Rae and Scott Larson discussed this amazing kitty.
