Rademenes cuddles up to cats and dogs recovering from surgery at a Polish animal shelter


He may have the best bedside manner in the game. Meet Rademenes the healer cat of Poland’s Bydgoszcz Animal Shelter.

The doting black feline first arrived at the shelter as a patient, according to the New York Post. Rademenes was dropped off with a serious respiratory infection. His chances of recovery looked bleak for a while, but the feline pulled through.

After helping to save Rademenes’s life, veterinarian Lucyna Kuziel-Zawalich decided to keep the kitty and let him hang around the shelter. That’s when Rademenes started doing something rather remarkable.

Without any prompting, the cat started sitting with and comforting animals recovering at the shelter. The nurse cat now spends his days cozying up to cats and dogs who just got out of surgery, helping them stay calm and feel loved.


Ear licks, hugs, nuzzles and purrs are just a few of Rademenes’s many affectionate treatment plans. Love is the best medicine, indeed.
