When a small transportation company in Ohio hatched a plan to boost morale in the office, they had no idea that it would go viral on the Internet.

The idea was to adopt two rescue kittens to work alongside the staff of six. Everyone in the office was delighted and when one of them posted a video of the kittens playing with a box, it quickly went viral and the pair became an Internet sensation.

Meet Debit and Credit!


These delightful kitties have become known as the viral office kittens on Reddit and have their own Instagram account with over 48k followers.


It all began when the IT department of a transportation company in Ohio hired/rescued two qualified kittens to play with boxes all day.


When you work in the same office and do the same things day after after day, things can become tiresome and monotonous. So they decided to hire/rescue two kittens to keep employee morale high.


The kittens play with boxes all day and that keeps them occupied.

They also love to snuggle up together – best friends right from the start. 


The building where they work is small, only six human employees, one of them is allergic to cats but she doesn't seem to mind.


They are both very good at distracting their coworkers. 


They came up with a couple of cute names for these kitties. And some very cool collars and tags!

Credit is the dashing orange male.


And Debit is an adorable female.


Together they make a great team.

And here's Debit playing with one of her executive toys!


The office is purfectly set up for the two cats to stay in at night.

The staff love them and visits these two on the weekend for snuggling and playing.

And sometimes the office staff would return to work to signs of "kitty party!"


Through the powers of Instagram, these two furballs became stars in their own right.

This is the video that made them an Internet sensation:

Sounds like a great idea to me, and maybe there should be more companies that have the same initiative and take on kittens to foster.

But really cats can't live in the office forever and as they were only fostering these two, eventually they found their furever home.

They are two lucky kitties who now have an extra brother and sister to play with.


What a lovely ending!
