A Two-for-One PotW Special: Pepê and Marrom

This week’s Pets of the Week are Pepê and Marrom!

These two canine sisters were rescued as a pair, and they could not be more different! Pepê, the smaller dog, loves to boss sweet Marrom around. And despite Marrom being larger, Pepê still manages to be the alpha dog in the house. Although these two fight like any siblings would, Pepê and Marrom get away with it because they are so cute!

Big thanks to their human, Gabi, for sharing Pepê and Marrom with us!

Meet Lucy

Her full name is Lucille Mildred but you can just call her Lucy, and she is this week’s Pet of the Week!

Lucy is a pleasantly plump cat who often screams when she wants food. Her favorite activities are napping in the sun, staring at bugs (but never catching them bc #lazy), and sitting on her human Spring’s laptop. Despite her sassy cat attitude, Lucy is a very cuddly cat and loves everyone she meets!

Meet Daenyris aka Danny!

Pet of the Week is back for the fall!

This week’s PotW is Daenyris aka Danny, a very chill leopard gecko, who can often be found burrowing herself under the bedding in her tank, and reluctantly engaging in dance battles with her leopard gecko neighbor Alan (a previous PotW pet). Danny’s daily activities are quite intriguing to the cats who live in her household. As pictured, the cats often perch on top of Danny’s tank to keep an eye on her!

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!
