Cats aren’t typically known for being gentle and nurturing towards other animals, which is why the staff at one Colorado veterinary hospital was so stunned by what they caught a rescued stray kitten doing to their patients.
An orange tabby cat named Ron arrived at Northfield Veterinary Hospital when he was just three months old after being rescued with a few other kittens from a feral cat colony. Yet soon after arriving at the animal hospital, the staff quickly realized he wasn’t a typical cat.
“We have taken on many stray kitties throughout the years and he is definitely an exceptional cat,” said Jen Weston, manager of the animal hospital. Ron quickly got to know the other animals at the hospital and was caught one day cuddling another patient while they underwent a non-sterile procedure.
The staff saw how good Ron was at comforting anxious dogs and cats before, during, and after treatments and he became the hospital’s feline nurse. “We once had a very aggressive kitty come into our hospital, and the owner warned us he had been very difficult, according to his previous vet,” Weston said.
They tried to keep Ron away for his own safety, but he escaped and amazingly befriended the cat. “They became friends,” she said. “Kitty was fine and easily managed after that.”
While Ron clearly loves being a nurse, he is finally getting to retire thanks to a loving family that gave him his first forever home.
