Clients at at Babar Hair in Melbourne, Australia get to enjoy kitty cuddles while they’re getting their hair done. Seven-year-old Betty Boo reigns over the salon with a furry fist, keeping clients company through washes, cuts, and blow outs. Chris Guglielmi, salon owner and Betty Boo’s human, says Betty Boo’s affectionate personality has helped her clients during stressful situations. “If someone’s had a bad day, is tired, or upset, she’s there with them,” Guglielmi says, “People seem to instantly calm down petting her.” For more about Betty Boo and some wonderful photos of her on the job, visit Mashable.
