Staff Spotlight: Meet Puki

To celebrate National Cat Week this week, we thought we’d turn the lens toward our beloved office cat, Puki. They reminded us that it was the week to celebrate cats (little do they know, every week is to celebrate cats) and that the holiday has been in place since 1946! Cats are smarter and more observant than we give them credit for. Just don’t tell Puki.

Puki really makes the office purr here at OCTO and brings a real pawsitive attitude. We’d be lost without their guidance and insight. So, without further ado, meet our cat Puki!

What path got you to OCTO?

What path? The one I walk down every morning to be let in so you can feed me and my other cat pals.

What is your greatest extravagance?

Tuna. Lots of tuna. And maybe the ability to sleep all day. Oh, wait, I really do sleep all day.

Which talent would you most like to have? 

Opposable thumbs so I can put on my own OCTO® Respirator Mask! I’ve seen the office humans do it over and over and it looks so easy (if you have opposable thumbs). It’s so easy I wonder why many people I see on the streets don’t wear masks. It’s seems like a no-brainer. But, what do I know? I’m just a cat.

What do you do for fun?

I love to eat, sleep, and, of course, play. One of my favorite toys around the offices are the OCTO face masks straps. So shiny and fun. The humans get a little annoyed but I don’t care. I’ve heard them talking excitedly about working on a new kind of strap, too, so that will be fun for me to test my claws out on. I also like to take afternoon strolls around the neighborhood to sniff things out and let me tell you, one stinky item I’ve seen a lot of are discarded surgical masks flapping in the wind. Even I know that if you have to wear them and you’re done using them you need to throw them in the trash.

Any parting words?

Shouldn’t you be feeding me right now instead of typing on your laptop?
