The cats are part of the organisation’s workplace foster care program in which companies care for rescue animals in their workplace until a permanent new home is found for them.

PetRescue co-founder John Bishop said the new program benefited businesses and lifted staff morale.

“The benefits of being around pets are well known, and research has proven they offer myriad physical and mental health benefits to the people who spend time with them,” he said.

“Our foster care program is a great way to develop and strengthen bonds between colleagues, to get everyone engaged in office life and also boost morale, and in addition to that bring some super stress-busting happiness into the office environment.”
