People always say that cats are selfish and cold. But anyone who has ever had a cat knows that this stereotype is not accurate at all. Cats can be just as affectionate and loving as dogs. And if you don’t believe us, take a look at the story of a Polish cat named Ramadenes.

When he showed up at an animal clinic with a severe respiratory infection, rescuers didn’t think he was going to survive. What followed really needs to be seen to be believed.

Ramadenes arrived at the animal hospital as a tiny kitten with a respiratory infection that threatened his life.

The employees assumed they would have to put him down.

But miraculously, he pulled through – and decided he wanted to stay.

He now helps nurse the clinic’s other patients back to health.

He is also the clinic’s official mascot.
