The doting black feline first arrived at the shelter as a patient, according to The New York Post. Rademenes was dropped off with a serious respiratory infection. His chances of recovery looked bleak for a while, but the feline pulled through.

To introduce her beloved "first-borns" – dogs Lulu and Meeka – to daughter Everly, Jenna-Dewan Tatum made a plan before she brought her baby girl Everly, now 22 months, home.

"I took some of my hospital blankets ... when I was in the hospital with Everly that had her scent on it – it was one of the receiving blankets and something she was wrapped around – and I had it brought back to our house where our dogs were so they could get her scent," Dewan-Tatum told PEOPLE at the Shutterfly Launches Pet Accessories Collection with Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Hope for Paws event held at the Veterinary Care Center in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

"I would get up out of the chair maybe twice a day to go get food," the highly decorated former Marine Sergeant Major tells PEOPLE. "I would be in my PJs for days at a time. I didn't interact with other people. I didn't even interact with my family. I was in a real bad place."
