By Staff

Cats were caught on camera wandering freely inside a Saudi hospital gearing to receive an international certificate for good health services.

The pictures of cats inside King Fahd Hospital in the eastern town of Hufouf were captured by a visitor, who gave them to Ihsa newspaper for publication.

The paper said the pictures illustrated negligence at the hospital “at a time when it prepares to receive a delegation from the Joint Commission International (JCI) to award it a certificate for good health services.”
