Lucifer the cat may have a spooky name, but his story will warm your heart. Nicknamed Luc, this cat suffered a spinal injury early in his life which left his back legs paralyzed.
The unique cat was taken in by the staff at Clinic Fang, an animal clinic in Perm, Russia, where he found a way to give back.
Luc began comforting the animals that came into the clinic. As they underwent surgery or recovered from injuries and illnesses, Luc was right there.
If you have ever been sick or injured, you know how important it is to have a support system. Luc is that comforting support for those animals that are scared or don’t think they can fight.
The black cat ignores the fact that he struggles to walk as he limps down the aisles of patients. He is willing to give cuddles to anyone that needs a little attention.
The staff explains that they believe that Luc understands what it is like to suffer and wants these animals to know that it will get better. They also think that this is the cat’s special way of showing his gratitude to the clinic for taking him in.
Luc is such an important figure at the clinic. In fact, he has even saved a few lives. The staff explains to Little Things that there have been a few times that Luc was the perfect match for cats needing blood transfusions.
The cat doesn’t discrimate either. He has even been known to visit with animals that might not appreciate his company as much as he thinks.
Luc has also become an important part of the clinic’s marketing. You can check out more about Luc and Clinic Fang on their website.
This unique cat has become a local superstar. More importantly, he has taught us all a valuable lesson in caring for others and showing gratitude.
