Ruth the Paralyzed cat and Idgie, her loving Dachshund guardian: Featured stars on Nat Geo Wild — 10 Comments

  1. What a touching story. When I see a dog and cat form this kind of relationship, it makes me hope that more humans, those who think they have “natural enemies” can learn from our 4-legged friends.

  2. I remember this story from last year. I am so glad that they are still together and doing well. Special needs cats are dear to my heart. We have had several and adored them all. Sending love to Ruth and Idgie. >^.,.^<

  3. What a great, heartwarming article. It is so nice to see a positive story starred by such caring people who give so much attention to these special animals, and tend to their needs.

  4. Although I unfortunately do not get NatGeo WILD on my satellite plan, I would love to see Ruth! Thank you for sharing her story with us, and much gratitude to everyone involved in both her loving care and that of the other cats in their care.

  5. Linda,

    Thanks for stopping by. This was such an exciting story- and the update is so heartening.

    It must be great to see Ruth on regular basis and see how well she is doing.

  6. Mike, Thank you for spotlighting that. I know Jackie personally and I work for Dr Holder. It was such a thrill to have this piece done and on a National TV show! Jackie is a wonderful person and I can’t praise her enough. She has a loving and giving heart and especially to our four legged friends. Our hospital does rescue on a small scale when clients can’t take care of their animals and need to surrender them we take them in, get them well, and find loving homes. Most of our staff, including both Doctors, have adopted some of these animals but many of our clients step up to the plate and adopt into loving homes as well. We are first and foremost
    a Veterinary Hospital but we have a big heart for the unfortunate. I was so happy to open my email tonight and see you had featured the show!

    • It is a pleasure to highlight these stories. They are positive and beautiful. We need both in the world. Thanks for commenting. I can how it must have been wonderful to be on national TV. Not many achieve that. Well done.
