Ms. Gray gives Rose the rat a little love.

Did you know that Ms. Gray keeps two five month old female rats in the back of her classroom? They’ve been part of the Robinson family since January 2017. Rats Daisy and Rose were rescued and come from the same litter.

Ms. Gray, a seventh grade science teacher, loves having rats in her class because they’re friendly, smart, and interact with people well. Most of her students were hesitant when they first heard the word rats, but are now excited and some come rushing to the back of the room to greet them.

When the rats were still a new addition, they were often mixed up and people sometimes had trouble telling them apart. Ms. Gray figured out that Daisy is a lighter color and Rose is darker and has a white tummy.

The sisters are energetic, affectionate, attentive, and playful. They love being fed and played with. Daisy and Rose live in room A200 during school hours and would be fond of meeting new people.

Daisy and Rose are out and about when they go home with Ms. Gray over the weekend. They get out of their cage after school to interact, play, and train with students that stay after class.

Ms. Gray’s students generally like to hold, play, and feed them. Daisy and Rose come out of their cage after school, before class, and during free time. When they aren’t in class or at home with Ms. Gray, they visit other science classrooms so kids get a chance to interact with the sisters. During the day Daisy and Rose play in their hammocks, watch the students, and nestle close together.
