Japan may be setting the purr-fect example for office work spaces where team members need to calm down.

Several Japanese companies and firms have started encouraging employees to bring their pets to work in order to reduce stress.

The pawesome policy was first kicked off by the Tokyo-based IT company Furray. The head of the company, Hidenobu Fukuda, initiated the “office cat” policy in 2000. Now, there are nine furry office companions who keep the workers, none of whom are allergic, cheerful.

Additionally, Fukuda awards $45 bonuses for any employee who adopts a rescue cat.
