Company Adopts Rescue Cats to Help Employees Unwind and Improve Productivity


A Japanese company in Tokyo hoped to help their employees unwind and increase productivity by adopting rescue cats into their office. In a cramped and hectic city like Tokyo, having a pet is often a luxury. Most apartments do not allow pets and residents have to visit cat cafes to get their pet fix.

The company named Ferray Corporation, an internet solutions business, has taken in nine rescue cats that are allowed to roam freely in the office. They become cute little balls of stress-relief.

According to rocketnews24, the employees think the cats have been an enormous net positive. Office communication has increased dramatically. The cats have brought them together and lowered everyone’s stress.

The company also encourages their workers to bring in their pets, so every day is Bring Your Pet to Work Day. If they don’t have a pet of their own, the company pays out a monthly “cat bonus” of about $42USD to anyone who adopts a cat that needs a home.

Ferray says that the most important quality they look for in new hires is a “love of felines.”

Here are the 9 rescue cats they have adopted:

They have all grown up now. Here, one is enjoying the lap time with an employee and the other one supervises.

Man Falls in Love with a Shelter Cat. He Tells the Story in Pictures


This man fell in love with a shelter cat, Soren the tiger, and he tells the story in pictures.

“My girlfriend was just visiting the humane society when she saw him. She told me I HAD to see this kitten. So of course, I went,” Erik wrote via imgur. “We played with him for close to two hours, then he got a little sleepy.” That’s when he knew he couldn’t let the kitty go.

“The next day, I bought him home.”

They found little Soren at the shelter…

Sally the Sweet Rescue Cat with a “Lazy” Eye and So Much to Love!


This incredibly sweet cat is named Sally. She has one “lazy” eye and a few missing teeth. When she came to Lollypop Farm, the Humane Society in Rochester, NY as a surrendered stray, she stole everyone’s heart with her lovable personality.

Sally, 7 years old now, is quite healthy despite having an unusual eye. “Our veterinarians do not believe her eye will require medications or treatment. It doesn’t appear to cause Sally any pain or trouble for her at this point,” the shelter wrote.

Sally’s googly-eye gives us even more to love, and she can’t get enough of all the cuddles and loving.

“We’re happy to tell you she was officially adopted this afternoon!”
