Here we go folks, we’ve heard your calls for top quality wholesome AF content, and I am here to provide you with said content, so open wide you thirsty animals.
In maybe the first move ever to make you believe ‘ I’d love to work in a transportation company’s finance / IT department in Ohio, ‘ a transportation company’s finance / IT department in Ohio has accepted a couple of rescue kittens to increase the morale of staff.
As long as you’re not allergic, what could anyone possibly not like about office kittens? Apart from the day to day cleaning of the litter tray, feeding, scratching, someone having to take them home at the holidays etc etc. But forget about the logistics of it all for now, and wrap your eyeholes around these pictures!
Because finance bants, the kittens are called debit and credit.
Think of all the stationary supplies to play with with with the entire office running! –It’s reasonable to say that, so far, Debit and Credit are doing a nice job as office pets, which is basically the same as being a regular cat, just in an office.
Thanks to a Reddit article, the cats were introduced to the attention of the internet by one of the employees at the office, who said Debit and Credit ‘ remain at the office at night (with a very nice configuration), and we visit them for snuggling and playing on weekends. ‘ The worker also disclosed that each individual in the office is taking it on ‘ box duty ‘ in turn.
While you may think office pets would be nothing but a distraction, according to a recent study having animals in the workplace can reduce stress and increase productivity. Unless, of course, you’re a vet, farmer, zookeeper or RSPCA worker, in which case animals probably play a very different role in your work.
A study by Virginia Commonwealth University revealed employees who had a dog around showed lower stress levels at the end of the day than those who didn’t, as Business Insider reports.
Taking saliva samples from employees, scientists evaluated the amount of the cortisol stress hormone in it and discovered reduced concentrations in employees with pets in their offices.
Marie-José Enders, who studies the relationship between animals and humans at the Open University, said:
It’s definitely good for the work atmosphere to have a dog in the office. Not only does your cortisol level drop when you stroke a dog; you also produce more of the hormone oxytocin, which makes you feel more relaxed and happy.
If your boss is giving you a hard time, a dog can make it easier to put certain situations into perspective. You can just take a bit of space and walk the dog. An animal at work makes people more motivated — they like their work more and they experience less stress.
As if you needed any more convincing to get an office pet.
