Alan the Leopard Gecko

This week’s Pet of the Week is Alan!

Alan is a small leopard gecko, but don’t let his size fool you! He can be found running all over their tank at any given hour.

She’s an avid birdwatcher and likes to play hide-and-seek with empty plastic shopping bags.

A “Silly Old Bear” of a Cat: Winston aka Pooh Bear

This week’s iSchool Pet of the Week is Winston!

Winston’s owner, Jordan, often refers to him as Pooh Bear, maybe because he’s a silly old bear? Maybe because he’s cuddly and loves honey? Maybe all of the above! Either way, this cat is bear-y cute and we at the Help Desk love his little fangs!

Cinder is this week’s iSchool Pet of the Week!

Lovely lady Cinder is a pleasantly plump little kitty who maintains good relationships with everyone, even her veterinarian. She’s a bit demure but that doesn’t stop her from getting into trouble from time to time. Instead of meowing, Cinder softly ‘honks’ and head-bumps for attention. She accepts forehead kisses in return.

This “Crazy Train” of a cat is “off the rails” cute 😊

This week’s iSchool Help Desk Pet of the Week is Ozymandias (aka Ozy)! If you look up Ozymandias on Wikipedia, his page is cross-listed with the word “hubris.” Ozy strives to live up to this legacy daily. Ozy often preoccupies himself with stalking outside birds from the sidelines of his living room, waiting for an opportune moment to bash his face into the window in an attack.
