Quest to domesticate a pet

Just to get the child to go to school, sometimes the parents will condone their children to bring a pet. Not a teddy bear or barbie doll.

One day a parent and student show up for school with their pet. A pet rat.

Yes, a large pet rat.

Parading the rat throughout the school, the pet receives plenty of attentions, cuddling, and petting.

This is no ordinary rat that you buy it in a pet store. They found the rat and domesticated it.

Rats are vectors for several diseases and to bring it to school is risky.

Say Cheese. Get it? Cheese!
