Every day, war takes its toll on more people than we can imagine. Although they had nothing to do with the conflicts themselves, innocent citizens have to suffer their results. Quite obviously, animals are not spared from that fate either.

Sadie, the beautiful kitty in the video, was found in a Turkish war zone. She was hit with a piece of shrapnel which seriously damaged one of her hind legs. Fortunately, she was found by members of the He’Art Rescue team and brought to the veterinary clinic in Istanbul.

Sadie lost her leg, but the vets had an operation in mind which would drastically improve her future life. After long weeks of preparation, the operation was finally carried through – and Sadie once again had four legs to stand on! The little prosthetic leg makes it possible for her to be fully mobile again – and, hopefully, forget that it had ever been any different.
