How unfortunate to read about this new fad to exploit animals for the supposedly well-being of office workers.
I became indignant to read about it. How stressful it must be for all these critters to be handled by perfect strangers. They are sentient beings, and to be in strange surroundings with humans touching them and probably voicing “oohs” and “aahs” must be so awful and disturbing.
This office circus to benefit humans must stop. Use the different stress-relief options mentioned in the article, but leave the animals out of it.
