The pets of SamKnows

"A study conducted by the University of Leeds has found evidence to suggest that watching cute animals may contribute to a reduction in stress and anxiety." Come meet the delightful (and sometimes mischievous) pets of SamKnows.

We owe a lot to our furry friends. Whether or not you’re a proud owner of one (or a collective!), it’s safe to say that most of us take joy in passing by a smiley pup or encountering a mysterious yet affectionate cat on a morning stroll. And the people of SamKnows are no different! Some of us pet fanatics, some of us… admiring observers.

For most of us in the last two years, our professional environment has completely shifted, going from daily office commutes to rigorous work from home set ups. Before the pandemic, SamKnows working spaces were always pet friendly. As SamKnows’ new London office is in the works, we want to make sure the next space is welcome to our beloved pets as well.

But for the inbetween, we’ve delighted in being able to share photos in our dedicated pet channel, to show off their cuteness, or complain about their antics. Either way - extremely entertaining for all of us.

Meet some of the pets of SamKnows!
