Cat is shelter's nurse.

Receiving treatment from a veterinarian is not a fun experience for many animals—especially in a shelter situation where they are often diagnosed with medical problems. But one cat in a Polish animal shelter is trying to ease the pain of other dog and cat patients by providing comfort and companionship.

Rademenesa is a black cat that was diagnosed with an inflamed respiratory tract when he was 2 months old. According to Mashable, veterinarian Lucyna Kuziel-Zawalich nursed the cat back to health before adopting him. Now, Rademenesa works as Kuziel-Zawalich’s assistant at the shelter in Bydgoszcz, where he has a very important role.

The small black cat does everything in his power to make his fellow animals feel comfortable while they are undergoing treatment. He cuddles other felines who are recovering from treatment and even snuggles next to canine patients at the shelter.

Rademenesa’s small acts of kindness bring joy to the other animals at the shelter and the affectionate feline has become an important part of the office staff.

And while Rademenesa might not have any technical veterinary skills, he definitely has the ability to heal sick pets.
