Quicker and quieter than a mouse,
You may find me in your house
if you happen to have a cat,
But a classroom is my original habitat.
If you haven't guessed yet, no need to pout
I'll happily point the answer out.

  • $\begingroup$ Well done! This is by far the most well thought out answer, kudos! Unfortunately I can't accept all of them and Karan got there just a tiny bit sooner, so I'm going to have to go with her answer. $\endgroup$ – MMAdams Oct 31 '16 at 18:47
