Cat wear cochlear implant

I found this when google for picture of cochlear implant for my Deaf Awareness class.

Not sure if thats cruel?? I would not do that to Star, my deaf cat!!

"Implanted cat 5 months after surgery.The cat wears the device 8 hours a day, 5 days a week.These cats are born deaf and offer an excellent model forstudying congenital deafness. With the implant, cats will comewhen called and demonstrate behaviorally that they can hear." quote found from
