Just in case anyone has been curious about any of the pets mentioned in any of my stories, I’ve added this as an offshoot of the Casting page… but only until the Wiki page is complete. That will be these guys’ permanent home.
Dali was given to Sookie while she was working for Wallace Milne. Her name was inspired by artist Salvador Dali because he kept an ocelot as a pet.
After a running joke about Erik stalking Sookie, he finds the cutest puppy possible to use as bait. Tina is short for Grand Duchess Constantina Lenore of the House of Barge.
A Boy Named Sue: Indian Peafowl
Sookie won Sue’s egg in a poker game and raised him from a chick.
Swede: Blue and Yellow MacawLike A Rock
Swede was found while the family was ‘shipwrecked’ in the Caymans, and his name was inspired by his coloring.

Monte Carlo: Green Iguana
After fulfilling the ‘Monaco Challenge’ given by his Uncles Bert, Hunter is rewarded with his own ‘dinosaur’.
Originally named Genevieve, this little monkey proved to be a handful and found her way to Pam’s menagerie.
Snuggles & Sunshine: Ball Pythons
In The Dark
Pam promised Tina and Shelly pets while she helped them move.
Unfortunately, when Eric and Pam brainstormed, he forgot to say ‘no snakes’ while nixing other possible pets. Sunshine was named for her bright coloring, and Snuggles earned his name by escaping his cage to sneak into the closest bed.
Pinkus : Andros Island Iguana
Couldn’t Get Away
Purchased and smuggled back to Shreveport for Hunter, Sookie kept him when he was excluded from the braid.

Versace, Armani, Izod, Oleg Cassini: Sphynx
Over the years, Pam has developed a love for Sphynxes for their hairlessness.
Oleg Cassini is mentioned posthumously in Rubbernecking
Versace and Armani appear in Death’s Door
Tina: Common House Cat
Tina was found as kitten and taken in by Sookie and Gran. She quickly trained the avid readers in the house to pet her while they read.
Love this page. The animals are so brilliant in every verse. you forgot about cujo and tippy from life and death though and bob from it can’t be
So we haven’t met Izod yet? Have we? I don’t remember a mention of him. Did I miss it?
Izod is Pam’s cat in Alpha.
We haven’t met him yet, but we will. 🙂
Are you going to include Dior from Intrepid?
Good crave….he did inspire Day Dude’s death and interview 4 Gran; can he get a mention?
Given Pam’s track record for owning those ugly things?
They’re soooooooo f’ugly. Don’t make me do a banner for all of them.
Will Swede get some screen time? Or Sookie’s ocelot?
Swede and Dali’s banners have been added. 🙂
Super sweet banner for Swede & Dali! Thank u!! Should Meantime host a skip in the future; can pet Pam get from ink/keystrokes? Would enjoy learning how Hunter gets along with monkey Pam; will he try and train/rename her Ampersand (like monkey in comic book; Y the Last Man?)
