Not everyone likes stray cats, but this cat from Brazil seems to have been lucky after getting a job to shut up those who criticized his presence.
Some were upset that Leon the cat was walking around the Brazilian Lawyers’ Organization, and complained about his presence at the reception desk. But what the OAB did was great: they hired the cat to stop the complaints. Here you can read an interview with the representatives of Dr. Leon, we assure you that it is worth it.
Leon the stray cat decided that the Brazilian Lawyers’ Organization was going to be his new home, but…
…some people didn’t like that and complained. But the cat got a job!
When Dr. Jeanette Laredo published the good news about the cat being an official OAB employee, it went viral.
Now Dr. Leon the cat lawyer, who welcomes people to the OAB, is famous and has his own instagram dedicated to his stuff and animal laws. More than 30,000 people follow the cat on Instagram and even envy the attention it receives.
The cat was turned into an OAB employee to silence the critics
“In February it rained a lot in the state of Amapá (Amazonia) so he arrived at the building running away from the rain and the thunder. For a week he was protected and fed in a box. Until he was hired.”
Its representatives claim that people complained because it was too small and they were afraid to step on it when it went to greet people.
“They said there was no room for him because it is a serious institution. So the president of the OAB decided to hire him and gave him an employee badge.”
The cat looks great in his uniform
It’s possible that Dr. Leon will have his own office in the future. “We are finalizing documents to launch an animal rights institute. It’s called the Dr. Leon Institute. Unfortunately, we can’t give all the animals a home, so we will be giving funds to the NGOs in the city. We will be an example to follow in Brazil.”
“Today we all love him very much. Even those who didn’t want him here have gotten used to him and are having fun with him. His favorite place is the president’s couch, and he loves his toys.”
“Two months ago Leon was spayed and has since recovered. But veterinarians say he has vocal cord problems because of his suffering as a child. He hardly ever meows, but we continue to care for him. This has motivated us to set up the institute and help abused and abandoned animals.”
He loves to welcome people
