Some basic skills of an office employee include the ability to organize office supplies, answer phones, and work a computer – adorable kittens Debit and Credit have all of those skills – almost. ‘Hired’ by the finance/IT department of a transportation company in Ohio, the rescue kittens were employed not for their natural ability to play with boxes but to boost employee morale.
The daily 9-5 can sometimes feel monotonous. You wake up at 7.am, grab a quick breakfast, arrive at the office, and sit at your desk all day. You can hardly wait for the clock hand to hit 5 and off you go – either at home or out to spend the night for dinner or happy hour with your friends. After everything is through, you go home and sleep. You wake up the next day and follow the same routine all over again.
Meet Debit and Credit, the adorable ‘office kittens’ taking over the internet with their hijinx.
The adorable pair are actually brother and sister and have managed not only to spread joy to their office but the entire internet.
The employee who shared the video said that Debit and Credit hang out at the office during the evenings but are visited on the weekends “for snuggling and playing.” Introduced on Reddit by one of their fellow employees, these adorable kitties were caught on camera hiding under and wrestling with an empty box lid. Understandably people wanted to see more of their hijinx. Debit and Credit now have their own Instagram account with 52k followers.
Animals as a part of the work environment have become an increasingly popular trend over the past few years. According to behavioral psychologist Lotte Spijkerman, dogs and cats can be psychologically beneficial to people.
“They reduce stress and increase productivity, mainly because they interact with you of their own accord and, when they pop over to your workstation, it’s a good reminder that you might need to take a break,” explained the psychologist.
