By Caroline Golon -

Cat cuddles are the best medicine! Just ask Nellie, a senior dog who was rescued by Animal Friends of Japan back in November.

According to the organization’s Facebook page, Nellie had been lying by the side of the road for two days before she was found and rescued. “We gave her a bath and discovered she had badly infected wounds on her leg and stomach. We think she was hit by a car,” the page explains.

Shelter vets went about working on Nellie’s wounds and nursing her back to health. But some other new friends also felt they needed to assist in her recovery. A couple of resident cats at the shelter took it upon themselves to snuggle up to Nellie, giving her some much needed comfort.

Apparently some other cats didn’t want to be left out and also joined the snuggle fest. Soon there was always several different cats cuddled up with Nellie!

The shelter reported that Nellie was well on her way to recovery and, even better, on her way to her forever home with a couple happy and willing to take in the sweet senior dog.

As an earthly dog I had my own issues with cats. But thought this was a nice story anyway.
