A County government office in the Southwest US have built a cat condo in their office and are allowing employees to take a cat or kitten back to their desk for an hour a day.

The cats are housed in the lobby of this two storey office and as so many people visit this government building on a daily basis, it gives them a greater chance of being adopted, after all, who can resist a fluffy kitten!

The office has 800 employees and each is allowed to take a cat back to their desk for an hour a day so that the cats get used to human interaction, it has also increased employee satisfaction and since the initiative started a year ago more than 100 cats have been adopted.

Reddit user Loocylooowho works in the office, speaks of how her son fell in love with one of the kittens on a ‘bring your child to work day’ and so she adopted one herself.

She says: “The county work with the local animal shelter, and because we get so much of the public coming through our lobby every day, they put up a large enclosed cat condo and some of the shelter kitties come here so they have a higher chance of being adopted. Meanwhile, the employees get to enjoy them, and it gives the cats a chance to be socialised before they are adopted.”

The kitties have a reputation for meowing at people as they pass by and most people cannot resist stopping to say hello.

It’s very inspiring to see that a government office would come up with a great idea that gives these cats more of a chance of being adopted.

Do you think I could get a job there?
