Radamenes has become a “nurse cat” at the animal shelter. He dedicates his time to nursing other animals back to full health. He has a natural gift for comforting sick and injured animals.





Radamenes kisses, cuddles, and hugs his friends until they recover!

This is just too darn cute!! I am of the belief that animals are way more cognitive than some of us give them credit for. Every solid black cat I have ever met have all been complete sweethearts and so affectionate.

Thanks.

Thank you.
He deserves some joy too. Maybe a friend that is not in pain. I hope they play with him. No one should spend 24/7 at such exhausting "work"

Wonderful. Cats are amazing animals. People who don't like them have no idea who they really are.

One of my ex's absolutely hated cats, until he met mine. After that, he was never without one.

ETA, last month I had what I believe was some kind of food poisoning. I was confined to my bed for five days. Except to eat, drink, and use his litterbox, my cat was right next to me the whole time and making sure he was touching me, either with his paws or his back.

He's never done that before. They know.

Loved this and there are similar stories out there as well. Cats are amazing little creatures filled with love and compassion.

Cool pic, although I think some people could stare at a cat for centuries and still see nothing because they have blinded themselves to the reality of how intelligent other animals are in order to comfort their ego and conscious.

I had the chance to tame six feral black cats, one mother and five kittens. They had been found living on a rubbish dump and the vets couldn't do anything until they were used to humans. So we let the kittens have the run of our basement. The mother escaped and then got another kitten to escape. We thought we had lost them both, but they were actually camping in a wild patch of grass beyond our fence. They took to sitting outside our doorstep looking for food, then as the nights got warmer and we left the door open, she took to tucking her kitten up into a basket under a table before she went out hunting, coming back and sleeping in the basket together. All the kittens would sleep in groups of two and three in little "cat tents" made from a sheet put over a stack of plastic chairs and mats. They would hide underneath the various drawers and only come out for feeding time.

Now she is completely tame and the kittens were adopted. The one that escaped now lives with our neighbors across the
road.

"If you put a cat and a bunch of broken bones in the same room, the bones will heal."


And if the bones was a baby bird or cute little bunny rabbit the cat would just torture rekill and eat them.

My cat is a serial killer lol he has a ritual and everything.

What a love bug! Glad comfort companion animals exist and believe more animals similar to the OP's cat should be given the chance to do this not only for the help of other animals as shown but to help people more so the same. There was a discussion going on in a thread(trying to recall it) about how a cat's purr can help to heal. So, not only the affection but if the helper cat is purring may help as well. Also, great break in the ongoing doom fests going on.

Wonderful. I love to hear it when kitties go to forever homes.

Looks like a real Kitty-Sattva! Truth be told, I noticed many cats are like this. But usually they don't have the opportunity to show their healing vocation the way this cat did, with lots of sick animals around. I hope this one will be able to work as a service animal, obviously she likes to.

Yesterday at work I was stocking shelves and around the corner came a man with a German Shepherd. The dog made a bee-line for me and was immediately friendly, encouraging, soothing. Then I saw a tag on him that said "emotional support animal." A service dog indeed.

His name was Sarge, and boy, he was awesome. Just the boost I needed. I hope to see him again.
