Miss Winkles Pet of the Week of Jan. 9: Jean

Excited about life? Jean is! She’s one happy Domestic Short Hair kitty, and she can play all day long. Jean has the prettiest of coats with little orange and black hairs all over, and big golden eyes that are always alertly looking for someone to have some fun with. She can be found most of the day playing in our community cat room with guests, flying after mice (she loves the ones that rattle the best), and springing from shelf to shelf after teaser sticks. She’s incredibly outgoing, and handles other kitties well, though, she does prefer a home without doggies. She’s all about being the queen of her very own kitty castle. Jean is only about a year old, and has a lot of life to share with a new family. She can’t wait to meet new people, and wouldn’t mind a few visitors stopping by to say hello and throw some toy mice around the room for her to chase. She’s always the first one to greet guests when they make their way to our Kitty Korner, twining her way about feet and shoving her beautiful face into people’s hands for some petting.

Clovis Unified superintendent: Schools, community are partners in supporting students

In recent weeks, our community has been rocked by the loss of students to death by suicide. These are heart-wrenching losses that leave families, friends and our educational team searching for answers that we’ve been told by many experts and survivors are likely never to be found. Even so, I have watched our team of 6,000 employees search within themselves and their individual job responsibilities for any and every way that they can show care to our students on a daily basis.

Miss Winkles Pet of the Week of Jan. 16: Dobby

At 3 years old, this Doberman/hound mix is vibrant and full of energy. She’s the kind of girl that’s going to need plenty of outside and fun time in her new home. She likes to play fetch, too, but her independent side comes out in every game and inevitably she takes her toy off to toss and play her own game. Her favorite toy so far has been a rope with a ball attached in the middle. She can’t get enough of it at playtime.

Miss Winkles Pet of the Week of Jan. 2: Ginny

Ginny likes to learn new things. Her latest? Climbing the A-frame obstacle in our play yard here at Miss Winkles. At about a year-and-a-half old, you can imagine this girl has quite the drive to play and the youthfulness to play herself to exhaustion. She loves everything from playing with rope toys, tennis balls and stuffed toys to chasing after Frisbees. Really, everything goes! Ginny knows “sit,” and is learning “over” when referring to her A-frame obstacle. She hasn’t quite figured out the hoop jump and prefers to stand through it, making her look like a girl with a hoop skirt. Ginny definitely thinks she’s got that particular obstacle figured out. That’s when her goofy side shows itself. She always wants to please and will try to do what you ask, even if she doesn’t know what it is, especially if you are willing to share a treat, a toy or even a good belly rub as a reward.

Miss Winkles Pet of the Week of Dec. 26: Major

He’s smart and full of vibrant, youthful energy. He’s named Major, and he’s an attentive young adult pit bull blend. At only a year old he still has a lot of learning to do, but he’s taken some good steps in his training and has learned “sit,” “down,” and is working on “leave it.” The last is the most important, since treats are his favorite thing in the world and motivate him to learn quickly. With Major’s energy, it is fun to watch him stomp about in water during the summer, splashing and playing and dropping tennis balls in his kiddie pool just so he can splash some more.
