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!

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.

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.

Friday Boba and Tea

Hope that y’all had a lovely week! Boba is here to send you off onto your weekend. He is a dwarf hamster who loves exploring the hallways of his home in his hamster ball. He dislikes it when his human disrupts his habitat to clean and will squeak loudly to express his annoyance.

This Doggo is on Team Edward

Our pet of the week this week is Charlie, a toy poodle who loves vampires. His favorite things to watch are Twilight and the Originals. His best friend is a rabbit, and they are approximately the same size–though the rabbit’s name is Calliope and not Bunnicula.

I would walk 500 Niles for this pooch

This week’s Pet of the Week may be a senior citizen in dog years (he just turned 14!), but Niles is as lively as ever! He loves snuggling with his people and playing tug of war with his stuffed animal friends. Niles also appreciates long “walks” in his stroller around town.
