The Teacher Creature Store


We love our Russian tortie Lemon!
Thank you for taking such good care of your animals. Absolutely 0 health issues whatsoever & he is so so loved!
Thank you for all of the help and guidance when looking at turts/torts for my son. He is deeply attached and fascinated with shelled animals and y'all made his little six year old life dream come true! It's truly his favorite store in the world now. We love Lemon so much ❤️
Great people who will spend time helping you.
So glad I saw your experience with the lowest common denominators. Looking forward to visiting your darling store and supporting an upstanding local business.

Welcome "Creatures of Habit”! We are a retail/resale teacher supply and pet store in Old Town Spring, Tx. Our store is a teacher supply store for new and gently used supplies for the teacher on a budget.

We offer tutorial services, notary services, support for homeschooling parents, classroom pets, teacher gifts and curriculum. We will also be holding events throughout the year to prepare students for the STAAR test and hands on Science related activities for the family to enjoy together.

We can finally say with confidence, we are open and back to normal business hours!

Even though we can open; we are continuing to pray for our community. We are Texas strong!


Continuing to pray for Texans! We have made it through hurricanes, floods, fires and now a winter storm. We are Texas strong and we will rise up! We are praying for you and your families. Please be safe and blessed!



Due to weather and water loss, we will be closed on Friday. If water can be restored, we will open for regular business hours on Saturday and Sunday. Be safe and blessed.


*UPDATE* We will be closed today. The weather is too unpredictable and we do not want to risk it. Be safe, be warm and be blessed!

Due to the pending winter storm, our plan is to close early tomorrow (Sunday the 14th) to avoid possible sketchy road conditions. We also plan to be closed Monday-Thursday and should be back to normal operating hours on Friday. See the hours below for this week. Thank you for your patronage and be safe!
