In celebration of National Pet Day on April 11, Plative hosted a “Show & Tail” with all Plative pets and their parents. This gave everyone a break during the workday to enjoy the company of their pets, their teammates, and meet some new furry friends. Want to learn more about our incredible pet parents and their pets here at Plative? Check out their profiles below:

All that being said – he seems like he would be tough, but he’s the biggest baby in the world.
