Zane Grey and I visit Pediatrics at a couple hospitals.

Children’s faces always light up with smiles when they meet him and Zane connects to them by sitting or lying beside them and purring as they pet him over and over – he saves his best purring for children.

One special time I recall, I laid Zane in bed with a patient whose Mother said he had no feeling in his legs. Zane positioned himself across one of the patient’s legs and was purring strongly. Seconds later his mother and a couple of nurses noticed that his leg was warming and pinking up.

Zane’s purring had stimulated his circulation.

On a follow up visit, we learned that the boy had gotten up after that and walked some.

Our animals sometimes know more than we do, and Zane always seems to understand what the children we visit need.
