A Christmas miracle: Vito is a six-year-old cat from Milan, Italy, who has become an internet "superstar" as the first in Italy to receive two prosthetic hind legs following a serious road accident.

The couple, former basketball player Silvia Gottardi and her wife Linda Ronzoni, returned home immediately. Vito's story has been widely shared with the hashtag #vituzzosuperstar.
