Cat Becomes Nurse At Vet’s Clinic, Calms Scared Dogs

Meet Ron, the kitten who has the special power to calm the patients at the vet clinic. The feline was rescued as a stray from the streets of Colorado. When he first got to Northfield Veterinary Hospital he was so scared, the kitty was hiding all the time. However, soon he got accustomed to his temporary home and started interacting with other animals who came into the hospital, as if to let them know it was okay and they needn’t be worried.

“He would approach any other dog and cat without fear, and would try to climb into their cages…,” Shelly Sandel, veterinarian and co-owner of Northfield Veterinary Hospital, told The Dodo.

“He started to cuddle up to any pet who was under anesthesia for dental work (not sterile procedures) and provide them with body heat,” Sandel said. “He would even groom them while they were asleep, seemingly trying to provide them with comfort.”

The kitty spent three months at the clinic, acting as if he was an employee, making rounds to see the patients. “I would publish his antics on my Facebook page and he soon became a requested service,” Jen Weston, hospital’s co-owner, told Bored Panda.

However, soon it was time for him to go to a loving forever home. “He lives with a family who has a young child and an older dog, and needless to say, they all love Ron,” Sandel said.

He has the heart of a lion! He got love and gave it back. I am so happy to read, that he got a new home, where he can be a cat and has his own empire for himself and maybe some friends. Not to mention, that he is just beautiful! We have two ginger cats on our own, of which one looks similar to Ron. Bless the people at the vet, who took him in the first place!
