And we are totally smitten over these kittens! There is a transportation company in Ohio, and their IT/Finance department had taken on two very important projects this past year that just so happened to come with a set of 8 tiny toe-bean-filled paws. The projects were Credit and Debit. Two sibling kittens who have lifted the office's morale!
The source behind this iconic duo is a Reddit user that goes by the username u/carenl, Carenl originally posted a video of two kittens, in office, and it soon became viral.

Credit is the ginger boy and Debit is the sweet calico girl.
How did they come up with such perfect names for this adorable duo? According to Carenl , "We considered a lot of names (in fact they were Rex and Rae for the first few days, but none of us could get into those names). We also considered AR and AP, but ultimately these ones fit."
The plan was to have the kittens live in the office 24/7
Carenl reassure everyone that the kittens are be cared for thoroughly, stating, "At night they stay at the office. They have their own room with toys and food and water and a litter box."
"Everyone wants to come visit our building to see them. One of our guys laid on the kitchen floor playing with them for a good half hour this afternoon. And we have a vet tech in the office family!"
They also have a bed, house, and a scratching post in the office. Oh, and lots of boxes!
Carenl also mentioned that her and husband stop by on the weekends for playtime and snuggles!
The pair has reportedly accepted their caregivers and their rotating line of human servants cleaning their litter.
Most people would argue that having cats in the office would be too much of a distraction, but Carenl provides a different perspective:
"It's hard not to play. But, when I have a stressful moment, a snuggle or a play session for a few minutes puts me back into work mode."
Debit, reporting for duty!
Try not to get distracted by a captivating little meer-kitten!
"But honestly it keeps me motivated having them around. I probably get more done because my mood has improved so much."
But alas, the office soon had to accept they couldn't hold onto the kittens forever.
And it wasn't the fact that they were pretty horrible at answering the phones, or lacking filing skills.
They waited until the perfect foster parents showed up so these two could have the best possible life
The two have moved into their fur-ever home and are doing absolutely great. Carenl shared this sweet message:
"Welcome to all of the new followers… for those who don't know yet, the kittens have moved to their fur-ever home. They are thriving with their new kitty friends and family!
We miss them, and wish we could continue sharing their hi-jinks with all of you. But we made the decision for Debit and Credit to have a chance at a home. [A] family with other cats where their adventures could continue, and they can be truly happy.
And they love it. Please be kind to us and the difficult choice we had to make by giving them up. Thank you to everyone for the love and support for them and us, we appreciate all of you"
Unfortunately, the kittens don't have a new Instagram account to follow but you can always relive their moments in the office @ourofficekittens
