Many recipients of the most recent Faucher Law Newsletter have been clamoring for more information about Sebastian, my paralegal cat and newest employee!

Where’d Sebastian Come From?

My wife, daughters and I have fostered cats and kittens for our local animal shelter for over a decade.  We first fostered Sebastian last year at this time.  He came into the shelter system as a sick stray.  (Since germs and illnesses spread quickly in animal shelters, young and sick animals are taken into the homes of volunteers until they are sufficiently healthy or old enough to be adopted).   Sebastian was a great guy from the start – friendly and curious, if sometimes a bit too enthusiastic with playful nips.  But, when we brought Sebastian back to the shelter to be adopted, he wanted no part of it.  The shelter called Karen.  Sebastian had been wildly hissing and clawing since she’d dropped him off.  They thought he was feral and asked us to take him back for more socialization.  Feral?!  Not Sebastian!  Sure, he was a bit “spicy,” but we’ve fostered feral cats, and Sebastian is not feral.  When Karen fetched him to bring him back home, the shelter personnel were amazed he let her pick him up.  Without oven mitts.  Once home, Sebastian walked in like he owned the place.  Sebastian obviously adopted us before we knew we were adopting him.

Once back, Sebastian started showing up in the office regularly as well.  Then he started giving lots of advice, usually unsolicited.  Then he started helping out with small projects, which led to his taking on bigger tasks.  I’ve made it official recently.  Sebastian is a Faucher Law paralegal!  Check out his mews-ings on office life on Instagram at sebastian.the.feline.paralegal.  Moreover, my Newsletter will feature a Sebastian comic strip in the future.  Apparently, he has lots of “tough love” advice to give on tax matters.  All vetted by me first, of course.
