COLORADO – As we all know, a trip to the dentist can be a nerve-racking experience,, whether you are a person or a pet.
For the patients at Northfield Veterinary Hospital, there exists a special creature – an animal wizard of sorts – who keeps even the most frightened at ease.
Ron, who is a six-month-old kitten, takes it upon himself to comfort the canines and felines visiting the hospital.
He arrived at the hospital as a member of a feral cat community, a part of a litter of four kittens who are named Harry, Hermione, Ron, and Luna.
Jen Weston, who is the co-owner of Denver’s Northfield Veterinary Hospital, says one of Ron’s most impressive feats involved the taming a big, angry cat.
The 20-pound cat was deemed way too aggressive and placed in a carrier when the vet could not get close to it. Cue Ron to the rescue, he hopped up on the carrier and within just a few minutes, the once-grumpy, wild cat was purring and playing with Ron.
After that, the cat allowed the vets touch and work on him.
Today, he is known around the office as the “therapy cat” who is always into everyone’s business.
Lately, Ron has actually been helping other animals while they get dental work done. His healing techniques include cuddling up to one technician’s dog, Fidget, while he recovered from dental work.
Ron is being allowed to comfort other pets, as long as the owners are okay with him being around.
However, by the looks of these photos, he’s a natural healer at heart!
