Animals are beloved buddies as well as pets.
At Baptist Health Corbin in Corbin, Kentucky, 73-year-old James Wathen is a patient with terminal illness. Wathen's physical and mental health deteriorated as a result of his illness. The nurses there tried to reunite Wathen with his one-eyed Chihuahua named Bubba after learning that he was thinking of Bubba.
James "felt sorrow when Bubba was brought to him, and Bubba immediately started hugging with James." Knox Whitley Animal Shelter's Deanna Myers posted a message on Facebook. And it helps you understand that animals are dear buddies as well as pets.
Following Wathen's hospitalization, nurses tracked Bubba to the Knox-Whitley Animal Shelter, where they learned that the dog had been nurtured with a foster home. Similar signs of sorrow and despair can be seen in Bubba dog, who was abandoned by its owner.
Wathen and Bubba were reunited on October 11 thanks to the nurses, and as Wathen pet and played with his dog, he felt even more delighted and missed.

Wathen seems to have fully recovered while he was there. The patient was able to eat and sit up when he had not previously been able to do so, according to the nurses, who noted this the following day.
Due to Bubba's beneficial impacts on Wathen, Baptist Health Corbin is making every effort to make sure that Wathen sees his cherished pet on a regular basis.
