The Pets of KingsIsle
Here at KingsIsle, we’ve had pets on the brain lately… I wonder why that could be? Regardless, we wanted to showcase some of our furry (and not so furry) friends on the blog!
This is my pet tarantula, Rosie. She’s an Orange Knee Tarantula, very friendly and a great companion. She loves the finer things in life like fine dining on Texas crickets, listening to her favorite band Rush and basking in the warmth of our Texas sun.
Fred Howard – Vice President of Marketing
Benny only moves at two speeds: asleep and lightspeed. He’s a Boston Terrier and knows a variety of tricks in both English and Korean, such as twirl, roll over, and high-five. He also loves eating lettuce and carrots.
Carl McKevitt – Game Designer
Meet Elvis, a 50/50 California King Snake. Her favorite thing is swimming in her pool. Also, meet the twins, Maui (back) and Moscow (front). Maui’s favorite things are brushing his Mom’s hair and nibbling on wheatgrass. Moscow’s favorite things are snuggling with his Dad at bedtime and finding new ways to sneak food off plates.
Leah Raymer – Purchasing & Inventory Specialist
This is Simon, my best buddy! He helps me travel 40% faster than walking 😉 Simon is a seven year-old OTTB, which stands for “Off the Track Thoroughbred.” That means he was bred to be a race horse, but was too slow! I am training him to be a hunter/jumper show horse. His favorite thing to do is jump fences and make silly faces at me!
Lauren Mauldin – Marketing Website Producer
Charlie is my little yellow tabby bobcat and is probably the funniest cat anyone could have adopted. He’ll come up for some love, and meow his thoughts on the world and life and such, and then bolt off to do backflips from the bed. He’s a purr machine, too. Kirby is the regal one in the family. He sleeps under the covers, enjoys a good belly rub every so often, and is one handsome little devil, to boot. They’re pretty much best pals. They’re my little furry buds, and it’s nice to come home to them every day, enjoy a short one-sided conversation, and get some relaxing couch-time in together.
Chris Kokkinos – Sound Designer
IguanaDonna is her name. She is about 5 or 6 years old, a little more than 5 feet long and just under 10 lbs. She takes a bath in the tub almost every day and loves to swim in it, although she is getting so big we might need a tub upgrade. Her enclosure is about the size of twin bunk beds and it has multiple levels with lighting toys, a water dish and humidifier. She hates to be on her leash, but occasionally we take her out with us, a few times here in the office even.
Joel White – Senior Game Designer
This is my dog, Zoe. We adopted her from the Humane Society when she was a puppy. She likes walks, belly rubs, and cheddar cheese.
Sara Jensen Schubert – Design Lead
Mirin is a Bambino, which is a hairless cat with little legs! But don’t let that fool you, he jumps and plays like any other cat. His favorite game is fetch, just like some dogs! Mirin aspires to one day have a snazzy suit like Meowiarty so he can be suave and sophisticated too.
Phred Newman – Pirate101 QA
