In Poland, Rademenes the cat almost died of a respiratory illness when he was just two months old. When he recovered, nobody adopted him so he became a companion to the veterinarians at the animal shelter.

That’s when Rademenes discovered his true calling as a nurse, purring other patients back to health. Rademenes¬†doesn’t discriminate. He helps both cats and dogs by staying by their side as they recuperate. Perhaps if health care in the United States continues rising in cost and sinking in quality, our best bet would be to hire¬†Rademenes to purr the rest of us back to health as well.
