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!

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.

Nimbus needs your attention ASAP PLZ

This week’s iSchool Help Desk Pet of the Week is Nimbus!

Nimbus is a grown lady cat, but she may never stop acting like a kitten. According to her owners, Adam and Siggi, Nimbus has exactly zero chill, patience, or self-preservation and often takes to trotting up and down the hallways crying loudly for someone to please, for goodness’ sake, come and play! This little fur-ball of pure energy will make sure there is never a dull moment in her household.

Feline Pals

We’ve got two kitties to start off your three-day weekend. Junior and Rusty are pals who spend their days laying around sharing telepathic messages about which chairs get the best sunlight. We hope that your weekend is just as lazy as theirs!

He's lying on his stomach with his front paws dangling in from. The cat on the left (Rusty) is an orange tabby. He's lying on his side with his front paws crossed in front of him. Both cats are staring off into space with apathetic expressions.
