Knee replacement for cats?

I've known about kidney transplants available to cats, and those are being done as close as Idaho. The patient's human agrees to adopt the donor cat for the rest of his or her life. Artificial body parts don't impose on a donor however. Here's a fabulous good news story about a kitty with a bum leg after surviving cancer who receives surgery to replace his knee. My favorite part of this article is the kitty's mama who states, "He's my child. And if it were your child, would you begrudge the money? I have a personal philosophy that people are, at best, equal with the other inhabitants of the planet." Well said!
