Wow. That happen a lot to them? Surely that isn't such a common thing to happen you just brush it off like that. Regardless you follow them into office 9, which, to your surprise, is exactly like the previous two save for the dog sitting at the desk using the computer. The image this evokes in your mind is amusing. "eie" You say, attempting to say 'hi'. They give you a sideways glance and continue with what they were doing before. It seems you can't talk after all.

You walk up behind them as innocently as you possibly can and pat them on the head, ruffling their ears a little bit. "Who's a good boy" You think to yourself, spoiler: its them. They cease typing for a full 5 seconds, then type a single phrase onto the command line without submitting it and point to it. It reads "Can I help you?"

You squeeze up beside them and take ahold of the keyboard. You delete "can I help you" and replace it with "yes you see i just woke up after dying and now im covered in fur and i have this uncontrollable aggression against my fellow humanoid such that i stapled a staple into this poor person and also i can't talk but i can type and play pinball and stuff".
To prove this, you enter $Load Pinball into the console immediately afterwards, opening up the familiar game.
They, visibly frustrated you just completely interrupted what they were doing there by loading an irrelevant program, raise a paw to their temple as though they had a migraine.

You exit pinball by hitting esc and type "You okay? You don't seem well." This is met with a short sigh as they smack your hands off the keyboard.
"Wait here. Don't touch anything till prompted" They type as they get up and walk out of the office. You hear them walk three paces down the hall and enter office 8.
You wait a short amount of time.
After about a minute, a prompt pops up on the screen. It reads "k8 wants to connect, to connect press tab". You do.

Code:
k8: Alright what do you want then. Haven't got all day.
~
k9: sorry. im just looking for the exit.
~
k8: Up the stairs ground floor. You wont make it past floor 2. Trust me I've tried.
k8: I'm going to stop you before you ask me whats goin on.
k8: I don't know.
k8: It's some kind of punishment.
k8: I think.
~
k9: how do i die for real
~
k8: Relatable.
k8: Also don't know.
k8: I've been "killed" here 4 times so far.
k8: I think they just want to hurt us.
k8: Punishment.

Code:
k9: ...for what?
~
k8: Beats me.
k8: They never tell you.
k8: One of them called me a communist dog.
k8: I was trying to see if I could find anything on the database here actually.
k8: Its interesting. No questions answered but it sure is interesting.
~
k9: ...how do we even come back to life?
~
k8: Don't know honestly. I do know they pay medical professionals staggering amounts though! Lots of pay records.
k8: That's probably related.
~
k9: Have you met anyone else besides me?
~
k8: Apart from the people that work here, there were three more with me before.
k8: Two of them have had their doors locked. One bricked over.
k8: The last one was locked just before you showed up actually.
~
k9: Do you work here?
~
k8: I wish. Have you seen some of these numbers?
k8: Never seen so many 0's on a payslip before.
~
k9: Are there any significant changes in between lives? Do we get, like, stronger?
~
k8: No.
k8: Well.
k8: One did?
k8: I'd rather not think about it.
k8: Anyway.
k8: What happens is every time you wake up you are more like an animal.
k8: In all respects.
k8: I'm about a foot shorter than last time. I've started keeping track. They don't clean the rooms or anything much.
k8: Before they locked the doors on the others they were more animal than person. But they'd been here quite a while!

k9: That's... interesting. Where do they even get that much money?! Unless they use a currency almost next to worthless, I would count that source of income incredibly shady.

k8: Holden Holdings.
k8: That's where the money comes from.
k8: No idea what that is or what they do.
k8: Only got records for this facility it seems.
k8: Called AN.k1-1 for that matter.

k8: Look, I don't even remember my name.

k9: I thought we'd become more horrible mutant nightmare creatures the more we die.

k8: I think its pretty horrible.
~
k9: Is that why you didn't speak directly to us? Can you no longer produce the needed phonemes for proper understandable speech? Is that also the reason I can no longer say words properly?
~
k8: Correct. Can't talk. None of us could.
k8: In fact, that's the first thing that goes.
~
k9: Do we also get animal powers like enhanced hearing or smell?
~
k8: I suppose.
k8: I guess my hearing has been a bit sharper of late.
k8: First thing I noticed about you was what you smelled like. Not that I could put my finger on what that was or anything.
~
k9: Have an employee been killed on site? What happens to them? Do they become like us, or do they simple disappear?
~
k8: Yes. I've actually gotten the drop on them before.
k8: They just turn up again next time.
k8: Its infuriating.
~
k9: what am I?
~
k8: A white hairy human.
k8: Can't tell.
k8: They haven't done too much to you.
k8: Not yet anyway.
k8: Maybe internally?
~
k9: give computer to staplehead and see if they want to say anything
~
k8: what.
k8: did you just call me staplehead.

Answers are getting less and less informative. You may be near the end of what information you can get out of staplehead.

k8: No idea what a furry is though

k9: so wait is k9 like a pun, did you give me that username on purpose
~
k8: Not a pun.
k8: Just a punny coincidence
k8: Just the name of the office.
k8: Probably.
You've had quite enough of this and decide its time to DO something rather than lollygag around all day. You get up, leave the office and turn down back towards the floor below. You hear the door to office 8 open, turning around just long enough to see a dog making a gesture at you with their hands that gets across the point loud and clear. That point being "what the fuck are you doing dude".
No amount of bodily scorn is going to distract you from your plan though, and you head down to the cafeteria. Nothing has changed in the halls or the cafeteria and kitchen itself. You head on over to the dumbwaiter. Which coincidentally, doesn't exist. The next best thing is the elevator, which if you think about it, is just a supersize dumbwaiter. You press up on the elevator and the light turns on. You can hear wires and such moving inside the shaft, but the door hasn't opened quite yet.

Spoiler :
Feeling like doing a recap soon. Anyone feel they'd be benefited by that?

While waiting for the elevator, which is still trundling along in there, you decide to have another look around the kitchen to see if you missed anything the first time. You open some drawers, they're all empty. You look under some of the cabinets, just dust. So defeated by the lack of anything kitchenwise you head on out to the cafeteria to see if they have any utensil stashes. You find one, but its mostly cleared out save for a lonely plastic knife.
You couldn't even cut butter with this thing.

You hear a "ding" from inside the kitchen and some rumbling of sliding metal doors. Seems like your ride has finally turned up, but to your surprise when you arrive there's no elevator to be found. Rather, an empty elevator shaft with four wires dangling precariously within.
