Black cats are usually considered unlucky, especially when they are crossing someone's path, which in some countries, including Russia, is a bad omen; however, this Polish feline is one-of-a-kind: he is a full-time nurse to the ailing inhabitants of a veterinary center and a true symbol of the clinic.
Rademenes was brought to a veterinary clinic in Bydgoszcz, Poland with one purpose — to end his suffering, Izabella Szolginia, the director of the center told Sputnik. He was in such bad shape that the staff at the shelter would not let him near the other animals. But when veterinarian Krystyna Kuziel-Zawalich took him in her arms and heard him purr, she decided to help him fight for his life.

Rademenes, the 'nurse cat' lends a paw to veterinarians at Polish animal shelter in Bydgoszczy.
It seemed that Rademenes took it upon himself to assume the role of a full-time nurse. Szolginia says that the animals, for their part, became less nervous, as if they were sure that if nothing bad happened to this particular cat, they would also be all right.
The veterinarian also explained that the unusual name, Rademenes, comes from a Polish children's TV series, where a cat is the reincarnation of a man from Egypt who grants seven wishes to a boy who saves him from thugs.
