A stray cat strolled into St. Augustine Health Ministries one day. But then she started showing up on a regular basis. Since she was such a frequent sight, the staff and the residents of the nursing home decided to give her a name. She is now called Oreo. Oreo would arrive and hang out with residents as they waited for rides. Soon she managed to steal the heart of everyone who met her.
Then she started sneaking inside the nursing home itself. At some point, the receptionist found out that the cat had taken over her job. She knew that Oreo was there to stay.
“She’s like the family here. She helps the residents, she helps the employees, and we just love her”
“Most of the people we serve here had pets… so to have Oreo here, to be able to come out and pet the cat…”
“And see how the cat is doing… it brings… those feelings of home.”
“I think [Oreo] just brings a lot of laughter, a lot of smiles, and a lot of just normalcy.”
Oreo has become an internet celebrity ever since her story went viral. She is doing an incredible job at the nursing home, spreading happiness and giving company to all the elderly.
