Employees started to fill complaints about stray cat roaming law firm, so they hired him

Nowadays, more and more firms are encouraging their employees to bring their pets at work, while others are ‘adopting’ stray animals in order to keep a good morale and to raise productivity. However, nothing compares with this law firm in Brazil, after a stray cat started to wonder around their reception area.

Staff at the Order of Attorneys of Brazil have noticed a homeless cat while hanging around their hallway. For unknown reasons to me, they started filling complaints about the unwanted visitor, but what the Order of Attorneys did is just incredible. They hired the cat and now Leon is a full-time lawyer.

Since having a cat lawyer as a co-worker, Dr. Jeanette Laredo at the OAB decide to share the news on Facebook, so the whole world to find out about it.

“After a heavy rain, this little guy here seeking shelter from the storm went inside the OAB building ( Brazilian equivalent of ABA, American Bar Association) and decided to stay,” the post reads.

“Unfortunately some people started to file some complaints about the fact that at the reception desk there was a stray cat hanging around and trying to make friends with the newcomers. In order to avoid some new complaints the board gave the solution: Hire the cat as an employee,” Dr. Laredo wrote in a Facebook post.

And since such a respectable job has its own benefits, Dr. Leon has his own representatives and of course, an Instagram account.

“In February it rains a lot in the state of Amapá (Amazonia), so he arrived at OAB fleeing from the rain and thunder. For a week, he was fed and protected in a box. Until he got hired,” Leon’s representatives told Bored Panda. [They said] that there was no space for him because it is a serious institution. So the President [of the OAB] determined the hiring and gave him an employee badge.”

Dr. Leon proved himself a hard worker and his flair made the team to fall in love with him. Now, even those who filled complaints about him have a great fond of him.

What a lucky cat!
