Mews and Nips: Meet Elwood, Hospital Security Guard Cat

A hospital in Richmond, Australia has a  unique security guard: his name is Elwood, and he is a cat. He even  has his own “official” badge.

One of the few bright spots in this challenging year has been that more people than ever before have fostered or adopted cats. One of these adoptions came with quite a surprise to New York Times columnist Carla Bruce-Eddings: When a friend texted her “do you want a kitten,” she immediately agreed.
