Junior Tony Morse rests his male Dumbo Rex Rat, Dexter, on his shoulder for comfort during Zoology. Morse bought Dexter from Petland before the school year started as a personal pet. “Since he is my pet and I don’t have him for the only sole purpose of Zoology, I don’t feel comfortable leaving him here overnight,” Morse said. “He gets lonely and misses me, and so do I. I also just love spending time with him, he is such an amazing pet. He always cuddles with me and is so content with me.”
