Law Firm Hires Stray Kitten After Visitors Complain Of His Presence
A stray kitten named Leon wandered into the police office Order of Attorneys of Brazil (OAB) in search of shelter during a thunderstorm. Naturally this little kitty had presumed he’d found his new home. So when the rain finally went away he didn’t leave with it.
Instead he passed his time in the lobby greeting everyone who walked by. But then the OAB started receiving complaints after some people felt it was inappropriate to have a stray cat wandering around a professional building.
However, the OAB came up with a fantastic solution to stop the complaints. They hired the cat as an official greeter! They gave him a badge and a salary of food, shelter, treats and love. Now known as Dr. Leon, he loves spending his time around the office and can be found greeting people as they enter.
When Dr. Jeanette Laredo shared the good news on social media it quickly went viral. She also posted an update saying he recently got a promotion and is “now a lawyer.” This fun promotion came with a clever new name: Dr. Leon Advogato or Dr. Leon Lawyer.
Today, he is close to becoming the face of an animal rights institute that will be called Instituto Dr. Leon. He even has his own Instagram page with over 90,000 followers where people can learn about his adventures and animal law.
