A cat called Oreo, somehow, got into a nursing home and got a job for herself. “She’s like the family here. She helps the residents, she helps the employees, and we just love her,” informed Carmen Delgado, receptionist of St. Augustine Health Ministries in Cleveland, Ohio.
Everyone who’s working there and the visitors love the little kitty’s presence. “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,” said Dana Carns, director of advancement.
“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,” said Carns delightfully.
