Bo

Chief Mischief Officer

Bo accompanies Katherine to the office, where his responsibilities are extensive. He oversees lunch room cleanliness and personally ensures no food scraps are left on the floor. He also believes that the best innovations happen when employees are pushed out of their comfort zone, which he implements by jumping in their laps, licking their ankles, and surprising them with joyful barks.

Bo models the effectiveness of power naps by laying down in the middle of whichever hallway is most convenient (for him), providing opportunities for employees to seek new and exciting ways to navigate the office. Then he’s back to work with renewed enthusiasm for tackling his primary job obligation: distracting everyone with his cuteness and cuddling with his office-mate, Pistachio.

Pistachio

Pawgram Director

Pistachio is Khan Academy’s Pawgram Director for Morale, where she spends her days cultivating joy and coordinating khantentment. Usually, one look from her puppy dog eyes is all it takes to bring out the joy. But when needed, she’ll roll over for a belly rub or offer up a high-five and some cuddles to spread an extra dose of khantentment.

She spends her breaks napping in (or jumping into) laps, snacking on carrots, broccoli, and cheese, or playing with Chief Mischief Officer Bo. Outside of work, she finds happiness on motorcycle rides with Adam that end at new parks or hiking trails.

Smokey

Chief Purrformance Analyst

Smokey is Khan Academy’s Chief Purrformance Analyst, making sure that laps stay warm and treats get eaten. When he’s not making conference call cameos, he’s sleeping on the bed, sleeping on the window seat, or sitting _perfectly still_ in Lilli’s lap as she’s working, happy to keep her company as she codes.

In his spare time, he likes to chase strings and beg for snacks. If he’s feeling ultra-mellow, you can find him sitting quietly, keeping an ever-watchful, unflagging eye on the snack drawer. A stoic fella in his older years, he will gladly welcome pets from anyone, any time, hardly moving an inch from wherever he may be lazing, and never, ever scratching or biting.

Didi

Chief Carrot Officer

Didi is a connoisseur of carrots and will not stop once he starts giving you kisses.

Bell

Most Loyal Friend

Bell, affectionately known as Fatty T (from her benign fatty tumor growing on her neck), is a tiny beagle with a big heart. She loves being pet behind the ears, on her tummy, and would love it if her human would stay in bed all day because she'd prefer to live her life under the covers, snuggling. During the day, she can be found co-working in her human's office, wearing a hole in her pad with her tiny paws.

Ruth Bader Kittensburg

Da Worst

Seriously. This cat is the worst. That's how she got her title. Because she's literally the worst. When not stepping on her human's keyboard while he works or chewing on expensive computer cables, she's finding odd places in the house to sleep. Her arch nemisis is the dog known as 'Bell'. She has two times of the day that she particularly loves: 'Foot petting time' and 'Baby time' (when her human holders her like a baby and she purrs).
