Some People Complained About Stray Cat Hanging Around Law Firm, So They Decided To Make Him A Lawyer

One of the biggest problems we face in many countries throughout the world is the stray animal population. While there are so many individuals and organizations that work hard to help these animals, not everyone is so fond of them.

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.

“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 very dear to everyone. Even those didn’t like him got used to his presence and have fun with him. His favorite place is President Auriney’s sofa; he loves to play with his toys,” the lawyer cat’s representatives explained, also adding that the employee is fed regular cat food.
