Caturday Reader: Cat in Polish Animal Shelter Makes the Best Nurse

What a wonderful story!

Crash Course

1

Cats get a bad rap, but they can be sensitive and nurturing too. The cutest nurse at a Polish animal shelter is under a foot tall, with pointed ears and black fur.

Rademenes, a black cat who lives at the shelter in Bydgoszcz, does the important work of providing comfort and companionship to animals undergoing medical treatment. Duties include gently resting on top of recovering cats and spooning canine patients.

Rademenes came to live at the animal shelter after his original owners brought him in with an inflamed respiratory tract, and feared he was too sick to make a recovery, Polish news channel TVN Meteo reported.

Now Rademenes is considered an important asset to office staff, comforting patients after surgery and sometimes cleaning their ears.

The Land of the Forbidden

Ooo…I like this!

Annie's Poetry

Do you dare to read the words

bled out onto white pages

What is real and what is not

is at the poet’s discretion…

what is true and what is not

what is reality and what is plot

who exists and who is imagined

We write to entertain your mind

it is the world of true feeling

the less you admit it
