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. Alan also frequently challenges his neighbor (a future PotW pet!) to frequent dance-offs! We need to see one of these dance-offs ASAP. Big thanks to Adam and Siggi for sending us this cute gecko!

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!
