Poor Flipper! The 9-month-old cat suffers from a spinal malformation that makes it impossible to walk normally or even stand on her own. Flipper's disability made her quality of life so poor that she was scheduled to be put down. But rather than see that happen, veterinarian Dr. Harry Gurney enlisted the help of a local high school's robotics club to design and build a contraption that would give Flipper better mobility. Watch the video to meet Flipper, and see how a group of ingenious teenagers saved the adorable cat's life.
