Stray Cat Becomes First Feline Lawyer

Leon, a handsome stray cat in Brazil, was out in a storm and decided to seek shelter at the OAB building (which is equivalent to the American Bar Association).

Congrats Leon!

    "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," Dr Leon explained.
