Pilar's Furry Family

Pilar's cat, Paco

The Story

Pilar grew up with a Siamese cat named Chipalito after the river El Tolima in Colombia + a dog named Bambuco after a Colombian dance.

More recently, Pilar had a Shitzu named Chiquita. While visiting Mexico, Pilar was chosen by her current fur baby Paco at a clinic. She fell in love and returned home with him, briefly losing him and creating a wild kitty airport chase.

His full name is Paco del Barrio, which means Paco of the Neighborhood.

Anne's Furry Family

Turq (pictured left) is short for Turquoise because Anne’s best friend had a dream about Anne owning a Turquoise cat before she had any! Sebastian (middle) is named after Jerry's father & Sebrina (pictured right) has "Seb" from Sebastian!

The Story

Turq, Sebrina & Sebastian are SEBlings! Anne & Jerry traveled to Oregon to look for another cat after the passing of Scotch. They came back with an extra carrier and brought both Sebrina & Sebastian home in one and Turq, who is two months older, in the other.

Scotch, Anne's original Studio Cat
In Memoriam

Dexter: A little black kitty who Anne had for 11 years before meeting her husband and merging their feline families.

"Studio pets help voice actors take a break & share some joy. This love helps calm us down & get through the day." - Anne
