Purrrfect Coworkers!

Let’s take a meow-ment to recognize National Cat Day! To celebrate, we wanted to share some of KingsIsle’s pawsitively purrrfect employees. Trust us, these hard workers don’t do any kitten around.

Henry, Biscuit, and Birdie

“Here are our little fur babies; Henry “Butters” (orange and white), Biscuit (calico) and Birdie (black and white Siamese). During the last year, my wife and I were lucky enough to adopt these cute little stray porch kittens who were found downtown. They’ve adjusted to home life and have a great time playing and snuggling. They even play fetch like dogs do. They have brought us much joy during the tough times we’ve all had recently and we love them dearly.” – John D.

Kilala

“This is Kilala, she turned 16 just a couple months ago. We adopted her after her mother broke into our storage room to have kittens. Her favorite thing in the world is to get dragged along the floors while sitting in a box. Most cheddar colored cats are boys, making her a bit special!” – Amanda R.

Epi and Five

“This is Epi ( short for neuro epinephrine) and Five(short for 5-hydroxytryptamine) They are brothers that we adopted from A neurologist. Epi is sweet and social, while five can be mischievous at times.” – Tracy H. 

Athena

“Athena Bambina Fetuccina Alfreeda is an integral team member who focuses on team spirit through cuddles. Athena maintains the break schedule, especially around lunch time, by loudly letting everyone know when it’s time for pet snacks. She is working on new skills and self taught on how to open doors by herself.” – Matthew F.

Happy National Cat Day!

Behind the Art: An Inside Look of Adam Roush’s Concept Art on Community Site Swordroll.com

Adam Roush is one of our amazing concept artists at KingsIsle. He regularly posts new concepts on his Twitter channel @AdamRoush2 and participates in many art related events from around the community.

“Wizard101 has been my favorite game to work on in my career, with its constantly shifting content from the Celestian Mech mount to Karamelle architecture to the Warrior Mage player gear. Almost every day brings something new and different, constantly pushing me to improve my skills and think outside my comfort zone. I’ve come to really enjoy concepting cute pets and props. Plus, painting complex illustrations is always fun.” – Adam Roush

The Ultimutt Coworkers

Every dog has its day, and today is that day! Back for a second time, we wanted to share some of KingsIsle’s fluffiest (and underappreciated) employees for National Dog Day. Trust us, you’re in for a treat!

Georgie

“My rescue dog – somewhere around ten years old, we don’t know how old specifically, but that’s the vets best guess. I’ve had him six years.

He’s around eight pounds, and we think he’s a havanese/miniature poodle mix.” – Brian


Athena

“This is Athena. I rescued her from the shelter the day before she was to be put down. She was scared of everything, mange and was not the ideal dog to anyone. I saw her pic and knew she was my girl. I spent years training her from her past fear to where she finally let me hug people again without attacking them. She had a nasty past, whatever it was, but now she is incredible, active, social and loves… Most.. people.” – Russell


Pici

“Pici (Peachy) is a super friendly 2 yo Malinois Terrier mix. She’s never met a human she doesn’t love and wants every dog to be her best friend too. Her hobbies include: de-stuffing all toys, sunbathing, learning new agility obstacles, and giving hugs to anyone human that comes in range.” – Anonymous


Shadow and Rev

“Shadow is an 8 year old German Shepherd/Akita mix. Don’t let her floppy ear fool you, she’ll hear you coming a mile away and come running for pets!

Rev is a 9 year old Havanese mix that thinks he’s more human than dog. He’s not the biggest fan of other animals, but you couldn’t ask for a better snuggle buddy!” – Kimberly


Bali

“Bali is the preverbal rescue dog that rescued me. We adopted Bali from the Williamson County Animal Shelter exactly 1 day before KingsIsle was sent home because of Covid. Since then she has been my constant office buddy. I don’t know if I would still be sane (well as sane as I can be) with all the craziness of the last year without her. We walk every morning to stay fit. Her favorite things to do (besides walks) are to chase flies, lay in the sun on a cool fall day, and watch the squirrels. Her name Bali is from the mythical island of Bali Hai from the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical ‘South Pacific.'” – Karl


Samwise

“He’s just under a year old. He chews on EVERYTHING and doesn’t listen well. He’s also currently scared of a squirrel that moved into the back yard.” – Dreux


Clark and Tuna

“Tuna a cranky old lady, and Clark is the always clueless youngster, completely different but I could not imagine life without either.” – Tracy


Alice

“This is my doggo Alice! She lives with my family in Iowa!” –Mercedes


Addison and Peggy Sue

“Pictured left to right is Peggy Sue (aged 2) and Addison the Shepherd (aged 10). I’m forever grateful these gals found us and wiggled their tails/nubs into our lives. They’ve taught me empathy, patience and love on a level I’ve never experienced until I adopted them.” – Jenny


Sadie

“It’s Sadie! Loves to go hiking, very much needs to be prepared to step into water, and her favorite thing to chew on is knuckle bones. She’s 12 this year and is still full of energy when there are humans around.” – Renee


Radar

“He’s one yr old and his name is Radar.” – Adan


Iroh and Winston

“Winston and Iroh are essential members of the team whose duties include boosting morale, enforcing snack time, and maintaining a proper work/nap balance. When they are not moonlighting as security alarms, they promote wellness by forcing dad to go outside and “walkies around the blockies” with them. They are the perfect partners to have while working from home.” – Matthew F.
