In honour of World Cat Day which took place on August 8th, we've tackled the topic of workplace pets as they are increasingly growing in popularity.

Of course owning a pet may incur some costs and maintenance that your CFO might not approve of, but the trade-off of having an office pet  may justify for it.

There are plenty of studies that are pro-office pets. Google "office pets" and most of them support the idea by stating the effects pets have on employees' productivity. We're not kitten, you can find out more here. The U.S even has a "Bring Your Pet to Work Day" that takes place in June. A few companies even let their employees go on leave when they get a new pet which is conveniently dubbed as "pawternity leave" (because pets are one's fur child!)

We've listed 3 reasons why an office pet would make you #workhappy!

2) Pets improve productivity

Since pets lift up one's mood and contribute to being #workhappy, having an office pet can help improve productivity. As stated earlier, having a pet at your workplace can do wonders to your productivity. And we can't argue with that because we believe happy employees=productive employees!

3) Pets serve an important purpose

They're cute, cuddly and fun to play and de-stress with but sometimes pets can be more than those attributes. Some pets are trained to be service animals and therapy pets which are helpful for people with disabilities. Having a service animal at work can aid an employee both psychically and mentally.
