Epworth HealthCare has drafted an unofficial staffer onto its security team at Epworth Richmond.
Elwood the cat lives across the road from the hospital’s Erin Street entrance. During the day the playful puss often struts across the road to keep guard and greet patients and staff outside the hospital.
The mischievous moggy has been able to snuggle up to security, obtaining his own staff ID pass.
At the end of the day, Elwood heads back across the road for a well-earned rest.
Elwood’s owner Andrew spoke to Sammy J on ABC Breakfast about Elwood’s escapades.
