Blizzard the Help Desk Co-Worker…Sometimes

Our Pet of the Week is our very own Jen Anderson’s adorable (if not slightly neurotic) feline friend, Blizzard! Blizzard enjoys making quick cameos during our Help Desk meetings but only when he deems us worthy of his presence…which usually isn’t too often. Don’t worry, we don’t take it personally!

Every time I turn around, I see the cat who turns my world around

This week’s pet is extra special (totally nonbiased opinion) because she’s a help desk GA assistant! If you ever received a message from the help desk that looked like “ffkdl;skkkkkkkkk” chances are it’s Punky telling you that you’re having a great hair day.

A Puppy with Wisdom

Nynaeve shares her name with a certain special wisdom from the Wheel of Time book series. She is a great alleviator (though sometimes source) of stress. Just looking at her makes you say “Aw…” and forget about your assignments.

Have a great weekend, iSchoolers! If you’re ever feeling stressed, just look at some puppies!

Lights, camera, pose!

Pascal here is truly owning it in this picture, and the coordination of his bandana to the green background is outstanding! He could be working the runway in all his fashionable adorableness. 
Do you want your pet to have their moment to shine like our friend Pascal? Send us a picture and some fun facts about your pets, and we would love to make them our next Pet of the Week! Email us at

What do you mean break is almost over?

Did you all miss Pet of the Week as much as we did? To get us back into the furry feature of the week, we have Padmé! She may look like she is a little scared for the new semester approaching, but her human says she loves to sit in on classes with her furry friend, Poe!

If you want to share your cute (and studious) pets, send us their picture and a fun fact about them at We would love to spotlight them and give them their moment to shine!

Sweet Furbaby

This lil’ puppy here is Ellie. She loves to solicit snuggles and destroy your pants when you’re not looking. She’s gotten a bit bigger since this picture was taken and is getting ready to turn one in a month. Lucky pup doesn’t have school on her birthday.
Have a fabulous winter break, everyone! We will be back in January with a new star-studded cast of pets. If you would like your pet to be included, please email us your photo to

Whiskers by the Window

This sweet and furry friend of ours is Punkin! She enjoys sunbathing any chance she gets and greeting anyone who walks by her window. When she isn’t busy soaking up some sun, she enjoys all the belly scratches and hanging out with her humans. Punkin and your friends at the Help Desk wish you all luck during finals week!

Carnivorous Clementine

Dropping in today is Clementine. She is a generous kitty who loves to share small critters that she has caught. Sometimes she’ll present them alive and give you the honors of finishing them off. Don’t you wish that you could have a kitty that generous?
“I wish that mug was a mouse.”
Have a great weekend, iSchoolers, and remember that we’re close to finishing off this semester! 😉
