Baby, the bionic cat

A six-year-old cat, named Baby, has definitely used up at least two of her nine lives.

When Baby was a kitten, she fell from a third floor window at her owner's home in south London. That fall necessitated metal implants in both front legs.

Baby's latest escapade called for the insertion of metal plates in her two rear legs.

"Baby is extremely lucky to be alive," said Jess Gower, a veterinary surgeon, who carried out the latest operations.

"We think she fell from the third floor of a building. Contrary to popular belief, cats don't always land on their feet - Baby landed on her back.

Now that she has metal implants in all four legs, she is being called the 'bionic cat'.
