OAK CREEK, Wis. (AP) With the help of the University of Wisconsin, a tiger cat has a new hind leg Madison students and 3D printers. Sarah Close, vice president of community cat shelter, said the Chicago Center for Animal Care and Control found a stray cat with an infected leg in last September and handed it over to whitewater in Wisconsin --based shelter. A vet cut off part of the male cat\'s hind legs and the shelter named it Sgt. Stubbs. Community Cat officials then asked for help from a freshman engineering class. Students make prosthetic limbs with 3D printers and extra straps to keep them in use. Stubbs received the legs on Thursday night and tried them out. Adam Schofield of Oak Creek, the new owner of Stubs, said he was impressed with the prosthesis and hoped that Stubbs would get used to them. Associated Press copyright 2019. All rights reserved.
