Cats are rather stubborn animals, one can't make them do anything if they don't want to. This stray cat named Oreo can be called a volunteer, because she's voluntarily taken a job at a nursing home in Cleveland, Ohio.

For 5 years now, the cheeky black and white kitty has been sitting at the front desk as a receptionist, a full-time employee of the nursing home.

It's common practice to keep animals in nursing homes. It can be called psychotherapy, because animals brighten up the lives of the elderly.

Many residents actually started to leave their rooms more often to play with the cat.
