A Cat In Brazil Gets Hired as a Lawyer

Leon is everything but an ordinary cat. One day, during a heavy rain, the adorable little feline sought shelter at the Order of Attorneys of Brazil. Despite his cuteness, some people said that there was no space for him because it’s a serious institution and people filed complaints. To stop the complaints, the President of the OAB had an amazing idea: he gave him an employee badge!

“In February it rains a lot in the state of Amapá (Amazonia), so he arrived at OAB fleeing from the rain and thunder,” Dr. Leon’s representatives told Bored Panda. For a week, he was fed and protected in a box. Until he got hired.”

Nowadays, Dr. Leon is a true Instagram star with more than 42 thousand admirers and his favorite place is President Auriney’s sofa. There is also a possibility that the feline will have his own office in the future.

“We are finalizing the documents to launch an animal rights institute. It’s called Instituto Dr. Leon,” they added. “Unfortunately, we cannot house all [the animals], so we will fund the NGOs in town. We will be an example for Brazil [to follow].”
