Amazing ‘Cat Nurse’ Comforts Sick Animals at Polish Shelter

Cats Aren't So Cold after All!


A black cat named Rademenes proved that compassion is contagious.

The green-eyed moggy was brought and rescued to an animal shelter in Bydgoszcz, Poland, after he contracted a serious upper respiratory infection.

Though he was in a terrible condition, this little black cat was not ready to give up on life yet, and survived. Radamenes regained his strength and began to realize his purpose.

Rademenes returned the favor by helping other animals at the shelter to recover – just like a doting nurse would.

He cuddles, massages, and sometimes assist them in cleaning their wounds.

Rademenes comforts the strays after surgery and even licks their ears.

He’s extra-friendly with animals that had serious operations.

The acts of kindness and compassion were witnessed by the shelter’s staff, and the veterinarians humorously claimed he’s a full-time nurse.

‘Nurse Cat’ has become a local attraction when people have begun visiting him at the shelter. Vet Lucyna Kuziel-Zawalich took care of him and eventually adopted him as a permanent member of the animal hospital.

Animals are amazing creatures, and Rademenes just showed everyone a great and heartwarming “pay it forward” story.
