Meet Saoirse

This week’s Pet of the Week is Saoirse!

Saoirse is a 6-year-old brown and gray tabby whose favorite hobbies are top speed zooming, snoozing in patches of sunlight, and screaming for her dinner (starting two hours before dinnertime). She prefers not to cuddle, but will gladly nap beside her human, Christina, during her online classes!

Meet Harrison Ford

This week’s Pet of the Week is Harrison Ford!

Harrison is a nearly 3 year old tuxedo kitty. He was his human’s first and last attempt at fostering! Harrison’s name was inspired by his human’s love of Indiana Jones and Han Solo. When he’s not hard at work unraveling balls of yarn, Harrison enjoys long naps in the window and gazing at himself in the mirror. The Help Desk adores this little businessman and wishes him luck in his next feature film!

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.

All Hail Queen Morgan!

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

Morgan is a sassy little lady and also the supreme ruler of her household. She loves her human mom, Delaney, very much, unless she’s gone for several hours — then it’s time for the classic cold shoulder. (How dare she, right?) When Morgan isn’t napping, she keeps herself busy with playing in boxes, chasing crumpled up Post-It notes, and being the absolute queen that she is.

A Cute Cumin-loving Kitty

This week’s pet has a special taste for cumin and is known for stealing food that contains her favorite ingredient. She also loves to play with a good fluffy pipe cleaner. It may not be a sunbeam, but we hope that Grommet Shadow (Pompom) Abney enjoys her week in the spotlight.

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!

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!
