Animals may sometimes amaze us by demonstrating love, defying prejudices about them. For example, a cat in Perm, Russia, decided to comfort sick canines at a veterinarian clinic.
The black cat, Lucifer performs all of this while being paralyzed himself.
It all began when Luc was taken into the clinic with his own set of problems. He’d been in a car accident and had spinal damage.
The workers at the facility rehabilitated him after he became paralyzed. It’s possible that he now wants to assist other animals as a result of the kindness given to him.
Luc is sensitive to the pain of the other animals in the clinic.
Luc has recovered some use of his limbs, but he is still unable to walk. Instead, he strolls about the clinic, attempting to assist the other animals.
He seemed to be sensitive to the pain of the other animals at the clinic, since he had experienced it himself, according to the staff.
Luc enjoys calming the other animals.
Luc enjoys cuddling with the other animals, which he does for hours at a time to keep them warm. He also provides his blood to the other cats getting treatment at the clinic, with the cooperation of the clinic personnel.
Many people at the shelter, both humans and animals, admire him for his selfless actions.
Why does Luc behave in this manner?
While the cause for Luc’s act of kindness is unknown, many animals are thought to be sentient, meaning they can experience emotions and feel if others are in distress.
This awareness helps them to communicate with other animals and people when they need assistance.
Luc is aware that he is doing valuable work at the clinic.
“A sentient animal is one that is thought to feel pain, suffering, hunger, and pleasure, as well as to have a interaction with the environment that is defined by what it enjoys doing and avoiding things that are unpleasant,” said Nick Branson, Animal Welfare and Services Manager at Deakin University, in a statement on the university’s website.
According to the clinic’s workers, Luc will drag around to the animals’ different cages to spend time with them and provide comfort.
When he is not looking to the animals at the clinic, he loves to join the nurses on their rounds and keep the staff company.
Luc is the definition of a kind and caring animal.
This isn’t something you’d anticipate from a cat, at least not to the extent that he seems to care about the other creatures in his environment. Even, and particularly, the dogs.
