The stray animal population is one of the most serious issues we face in many areas throughout the world. While many people and organizations work tirelessly to aid these creatures, they are not universally adored.
After a heavy rain, a stray cat named Leon decided to seek shelter to avoid the storm. He went inside the Order of Attorneys of Brazil and made it his new home. However, when the friendly cat started to approach guests of the building, some of them got angry and began filing complaints about the cat being in the reception area. They said that the kitten was in the way and there was no space for him in a serious institution.
However, the OAB came up with a fantastic solution to stop these complaints. They hired the cat as a lawyer and gave him an employee badge. The cat will be responsible for welcoming the newcomers whether they like it or not. When Dr. Jeanette Laredo shared the good news on social media, it quickly went viral.
Dr. Leon the lawyer Cat has over 50,000 Instagram followers who follow him for updates on his escapades and animal law.
“We are finalizing the documents to launch an animal rights institute. It’s called Instituto Dr. Leon. Unfortunately, we cannot house all [the animals], so we will fund the NGOs in town. We will be an example for Brazil [to follow].”
“Today, he is cherished by everybody. Even those who disliked him grew accustomed to his presence and enjoyed their time with him. President Auriney’s sofa is his favorite spot, and he enjoys playing with his toys,” the lawyer cat’s supporters revealed, adding that the employee is fed ordinary cat food.
Thanks to the help and love of the Office of Attorneys, Dr. Leon has a second chance at living a full and happy life. Share this with all of your cat-loving friends and don’t forget to let us know your thoughts in comments!
