From stray cat to lawyer!

A stray cat in Brazil has been 'hired' as a lawyer after it wandered in from the cold.

The cat walked into the OAB (The Order of Attorneys of Brazil, which is the Brazilian Bar Association) after a storm and made himself at home. After some clients complained about a cat being at the reception area, the lawyers decided not only to adopt him but also to offer him a ‘job’ as a lawyer. He even got a name tag showing his designation.

The cat, now known as Dr Leon, O Advogato, was recently promoted to ‘Executive Director of the Dr Leon Institute’. Their mission is to help NGOs that protect abandoned and abused animals across the country, starting with his city Macapá.

Leon has since become a sensation on social media. You may follow him on Instagram – dr_leon_advogato.
