Dedicated Feline Lands Role as Hospital “Guardian” by Endlessly Patrolling Premises

Let’s shift the spotlight to our feline friends who work hard and have important roles, such as working cats, service cats, and cats with jobs. While dogs tend to get all the attention, let’s not forget about our talented kitties!
We all know what it’s like to have coworkers we don’t quite mesh with, but have you ever had a coworker who was an adorable cat? Imagine being greeted at work every day by a furry friend.
Visiting hospitals can be tough, but what if there was a special security guard waiting for you at the entrance? An Australian hospital hired a local cat who had been visiting daily and gave him a staff badge as a security guard.
As cat enthusiasts, we can’t help but be fascinated by this “Security Cat” and his story. If you want more details, we’ve got them right here, meow!

Rewritten: For the past twelve months, this charming young fellow has been keeping company at the Epworth Hospital in Richmond, Australia.

Initially, people often mistook him for a homeless animal. Chantel Trollip, a pathologist, shared with Bored Panda that upon her initial encounter with him, she thought he was a stray since he wasn’t wearing anything. However, someone eventually put a collar and tag on him, and now, he has his own identification badge that looks similar to the badges of their actual staff – even including call codes at the back.

According to Chantel Trollip, she recalled the time when he was officially employed. She shared that in June, she saw him wearing his ID badge, which instantly improved her bad mood at that time.

Congratulations to Chantel Trollip, our outstanding Employee of the Month! We want to recognize her exceptional performance and hard work. Chantel has been a great asset to our team, always going above and beyond to ensure that our clients receive the best service possible. She is a true professional who consistently meets and exceeds expectations. We are grateful for her dedication and commitment, and we look forward to seeing all the great things she will achieve in her future endeavors. Once again, congratulations Chantel on this well-deserved recognition!

This furry fellow is a real charmer with a welcoming and sociable demeanor, although he doesn’t crave excessive cuddles. He’s content with a quick pat before trotting off to carry out his duties on the security squad, ensuring all visitors are screened before entering.

According to Chantel Trollip, Elwood was found residing in a house situated opposite to the hospital. Elaborating further, she stated that Elwood never made any attempt to enter the hospital, probably due to his tiny size that made it impossible for him to activate the automatic doors. Interestingly, someone had transformed a kidney dish from the hospital into a water bowl for Elwood’s use.
