Stray Cat Wanders Into Nursing Home, Then Gets A Job On The Front Desk

This cutie is everyone’s favorite staff member

Oreo, in a rags to relatively less rags story, one day wandered into a nursing home and found her true calling. “She’s like the family here. She helps the residents, she helps the employees, and we just love her,” the receptionist at St. Augustine Health Ministries, Carmen Delgado said. Did we mention that Oreo is a cat?

The cat, from Cleveland, Ohio has everyone gushing and saying good things about her. “Most of the people we serve here had pets… so to have Oreo here, for them to be able to come out and pet the cat and see how the cat is doing… it brings… those feelings of home,” the director of advancement, Dana Carns said.

She continued, saying, “I’m always getting pictures, even on the weekends or at night that the staff are taking. ‘Oh look, Oreo is at the reception desk, answering the phone, because it’s after hours’, or ‘she’s sitting on a bench with a resident who’s waiting for her ride.’”

“The residents were so excited to have Oreo around. They all love her and seek her out for a snuggle.”

Meet this cool cat, who works hard and plays hard. After walking into a nursing home, she appears to have found herself quite a home as well.
