Default Magical Menagerie


Welcome to the Magical Menagerie! It truly is your one stop shop for all your creature-related needs (except for owls). As you enter the shop the sounds of creatures fills your ears though they may not be in sight right away. It seems the shop has had some work done to it recently. Right up front there is a large oak counter, a shiny new register sitting off to one side. On the wall just behind the counter are seven colored pegs each one holding a clipboard filled with paperwork. This is how the shopkeeper keeps special orders and requests.

Beyond the counter is the display area. Rows upon rows of anything you might need for your new pet or that pet you already have at home that deserves some pampering! From all big to small tanks, training crates and travel bags, all types of foods and treats from the young to the older, we even have foods for sensitive bellies! Climbing posts, chew toys, balls that jingle and ones that flash colors, squeaky mice too. There’s shampoos and medicine’s of all sorts as well. Collars and leashes of all styles and sizes, some with matching shirts, coats and booties! If a comfy bed is what you need we have those as well. Don’t see something you’re looking for? Come right up to our shopkeeper and ask we might just have it and if by some chance we don’t, well than we can order it for you!

Past the display are the Menagerie is broken up into smaller, creature-themed rooms; a zoo within a shop, if you will. Each room is decorated to make the creatures feel more at home, from a change in lighting, large murals painted on the walls and flowers and plants scattered about. The room dedicated to Reptiles and Amphibians is first, while the room for smaller animals comes next. Right after that is a room sanctioned for our Aviation friends; birds of all shapes and sizes reside here, please note that it can get a bit loud and messy in here at times. In following room is home to many large fish tanks containing fresh-water fish, salt-water fish and plants, alike! Fresh-water fish on the left and salt-water fish on the right. Felines are next in line with large cages lining the walls. We have a large range of different cat breeds as well as Kneazles. The last room is also our loudest. Our Canines! Crups are a BEST SELLER! We also have several other breeds of canines. Both the Feline and Canine rooms have four play areas set up in the center of each room which holds toys and treats if you would like to play with one of the creatures before purchasing them!

Owls were undeniably the most common pet for Hogwarts but Harri was simply not feeling them so here she was, after very minimal prodding from her brother (who let her go in first because he was catching up with a classmate from Hogwarts), looking to see if something like a toad or pygmy puff might interest her since she wanted a pet that she could more or less keep in her pocket.

Cats were also out of the question because she was allergic to them. SAD.

The eleven-year old with a head of messy dark blonde hair stepped into the menagerie right towards one of the creature-themed rooms (Reptiles and Amphibians), mouth hanging open slightly at how elaborate it looked. It was a zoo! She was in a zoo!

And she can bring home one of the creatures from there. It was so exciting! Turning her head left and right, she surveyed the area for someone to get excited with and maybe provide some useful input on what pet she should get.

Shoppingsies. Shoppingsies. Shoppingsies.

Toddles would do his very best not to let Mister Master Headmaster down with this very very very important duty.

Only Toddles had already misplaced his shopping list while chasing after a leaf that looked remarkably like a blast-ended skrewt. If Mister Master Headmaster asked, Toddles would reply that it was the windsies fault! Too strong for Toddles fingers, it was.

Blast-ended skrewts on the mind, Toddles scampered into Magical Menagerie and his already enormous eyes grew five more times their size.

Toddles want! Toddles want!

Not knowing where to even begin (though those colored pegs behind the counter were calling his name), Toddles scuttled and darted this way and that. Maybe Toddles could use Mister Master Headmaster's sack of wizarding moneies to buy Toddles a ferret? They ran around just like he did!

Too excited, Toddles was, to notice other studensies right now.

Valencia was of course getting a new pet. It was a must. If her mother had her way, she'd be shipped off to Hogwarts with 192 pets in tow. (No exaggeration.)

She wandered around the aisles trying to decide if she wanted one of these or if she wanted an owl. Through her wanderings, she spotted a girl about her age.

"See anything interesting?" She was in the mood for interesting. It was a bit of an inherited trade.

The search for a partner didn't take long and soon the eleven year old had inched closer to the girl who spoke to her. WELL, HELLO THERE.

Interesting?

Hmm. Harri brought her hand up to stroke her chin, resting it on her other arm that she snaked around her torso, blue irises looked around once more for something...interesting. Some turtles, plimpies, hermit crabs, and then...a house elf?

The hand stroking her chin moved to point at the creature and she gave the other girl a look that said 'there's your interesting'.

A cruppie! No no. Toddles needs a smaller friendsies. Cruppies were too big and could not fit in Toddles' handsies. Maybe Toddles should be looking at ratsies? NO NO! What were those? They looked so round scrub brushes but softer! Nice and small too! Fit very nicely in Toddles' handsies and pocketsies for safe keepsies! Nimma wouldn't feel cross with Toddles if she couldn't see! If Nimma no see, Nimma no feel sad for any messes made! Toddles was so thoughtful, he was!

Eyes twinkling like the shinies in the big hourglasses back in the castle, Toddles pulled the strings loose on the coin purse and peered inside with one of his big eyes like he did the telescopes he was meant to be cleaning but rarely every finished.

"Oooooh boiled sweet potatosies! Toddles no good at counting moneies!"

Wallowing with droopy ears, Toddles gave a loud sniffle and looked around.

"Oh Oh! Mistress studentsies! Tell Toddles what this is?" he pleaded while holding up a small fist full of shiny bronze coins. "Enough for Toddles to buy the fluffy soft scrub brushsies?"

Chloe Kettleburn had rats in her pockets and puffskeins on her shoulders. She was going to put them back later, but they were keeping her company at the moment while she did some shopping for Clara. The sweet little dog was too big to come with Chloe to Diagon Alley these days, although Chloe would bring her EVERYWHERE if such a thing was allowed.

Oh, kneazles. And frogs. Where could she put those?

It had been...well...it had been. That was about as much description as Derf could muster when he reflected on the past year. He was still sorting out what ink to get added today, so he reckoned a bit of a distraction in perusing Magical Menagerie couldn't hurt anything. He found it almost ironic that he had no familiar (no, Picketta did not count) and had often wondered if he should rectify that. His family of bowtruckles who were back home keeping his sister entertained as living dolls - they had volunteered, mostly - were vividly on his mind as he scanned the shelves, his own thoughts loud and drowning out the voices from a few aisles over.

Though what did draw his attention away from his thoughts was the presence of one Chloe Kettleburn...covered in creatures. Why was he not the least bit surprised? Chuckling, he approached her and offered his hand to some of the puffskeins on her shoulder to smell before gently patting their fluff. "I can tell you from personal experience that newts take fondly to hair."

"I can tell you from personal experience that newts take fondly to hair."
Of all places in the world to run into a Derf, it didn't surprise Chloe at all that she found him here. In the wonderful land of creatures. She handed off her puffskein to Derf and collected a kitten who wanted to bite her fingers until they bled. Poor thing needed love and attention.

"I don't think I'd feel right just sticking a newt in my hair. The proprieter might think I'm trying to steal it, and it might not be the sort that likes hair. I was thinking I'd just let a frog scuttle on my hands for a bit and he could just go where his heart led him." She tucked two little pink noses back into her pocket when the kitten took a sudden interest in them.

"What are you doing here today? Why don't you ever owl me to ask me to go shopping with you?" Not recrimination, just genuine curiosity. Did Derf just prefer to be alone?

Valencia followed the gaze of the other girl to... a house elf. Her mother had always warned her about the house elves. She always said they were up to something.

Valencia, however, was just staring rather impolitely at the large set of eyes. They were so big. Valencia was sure her mother had what psychologists called "cute aggression" where she'd just want to hold and squeeze and love cute things. It was in this moment, looking at those large set of eyes and just wanting to give them a squeeze, that the young girl wondered if the trait was genetic.

But instead of offering to squeeze the small creature, she just tilted her head. "I'm not sure it's for sale."

This later seemed to be proven true when the house elf asked for some help counting money.

"Oh! I can help!" she said rushing forward. "I'm good at counting and money."

"I sure hope not." was her response to the other girl's statement of the house elf not being for sale.

Actually Harri fairly liked house elves. Her family didn't own one but her brother, Owen, often told her of his great kitchen adventures at Hogwarts with the help of the house elves so she was a bit biased. Plus, this one was weirdly cute. Wait, what was its name? "You're called Toddles?"

And apparently Toddles needed help with counting his money. Ooooh, a shopping house elf. How interesting. "I'll help too!" Not that she was any good at counting but the other girl looked smart enough for the both of them.

But before anything else, "Um, dumb question...what are fluffy soft scrub brushsies?" Blink.

"I don't think I'd feel right just sticking a newt in my hair. The proprieter might think I'm trying to steal it, and it might not be the sort that likes hair. I was thinking I'd just let a frog scuttle on my hands for a bit and he could just go where his heart led him." She tucked two little pink noses back into her pocket when the kitten took a sudden interest in them.

"What are you doing here today? Why don't you ever owl me to ask me to go shopping with you?" Not recrimination, just genuine curiosity. Did Derf just prefer to be alone?
Oh. Puffskein. Hello there.

Quickly readying his hands, the 17-year-old gladly cupped the fluffy creature in them and even gave the tiny thing an affectionate nuzzle with his nose. Which, well, naturally that encouraged the puffskein to slip its tongue out and up one of his nostrils, but Derf didn't mind.

"I reckon they may think you're trying to steal some anyway seeing as you are wearing most of them...and pocketing a few," he chuckled in a teasing tone. "Scamander used to like tangling up in my hair...and Zoryn wore him there too when we tipped our boat over in first year."

Wait. What? Derf had to take a moment to remind himself that Chloe did not often ask these things to fuss so much as she genuinely had interest in someone's thought process. Though it still came across as a bit of a pout and he couldn't really blame her. He had slacked off quite a bit with letter writing this summer. "I sorta came out on a whim, really," he admitted with some ruffling of the hair. "Just got back from a quick trip with dad to the Adriatic Sea. Thinking about getting another tattoo...still got inferi bite scars I gotta modify and, well, this shop always sets me at ease." He then allowed the puffskein to nestle in on his shoulders right next to his neck. "You could always write me about that too, you know."

Actually Harri fairly liked house elves. Her family didn't own one but her brother, Owen, often told her of his great kitchen adventures at Hogwarts with the help of the house elves so she was a bit biased. Plus, this one was weirdly cute. Wait, what was its name? "You're called Toddles?"

Oooh. It looks like this girl knew the house elf. Interesting.

"Hi, Toddles. I'm Valencia." she introduced herself cheerfully. She looked around trying to figure out what the house elf was trying to buy. "Oh. The hamsters. They're soft and like to run around." She knew all about animals. Her mom was always rattling off random facts.

"How many are you getting?" she asked already starting to organize the stack of coins. "Four gold coins is more than enough to get one." Which seemed like a lot in her opinion, but maybe they did something special.

Toddles. What an odd, cute name. She liked it!

As the other girl was doing the money thing, Harri bounded over to where the fluffy soft scrub brushsies were. Hamsters! Toddles meant hamsters. Some of them squeaked and ran around, others looked curiously up to her. She picked up a chubby white one with one hand and turned back to the girl and the house elf to share her name too. "And I'm Harri! With an i." She said, raising her free hand. "Very nice to meet you both."

"So Toddles, your Mister Master Headmaster gave you money to buy hamsters? That's very kind of him." He must really care for his house elves.

Cats were also out of the question because she was allergic to them. SAD.

The eleven-year old with a head of messy dark blonde hair stepped into the menagerie right towards one of the creature-themed rooms (Reptiles and Amphibians), mouth hanging open slightly at how elaborate it looked. It was a zoo! She was in a zoo!

And she can bring home one of the creatures from there. It was so exciting! Turning her head left and right, she surveyed the area for someone to get excited with and maybe provide some useful input on what pet she should get.

Blast-ended skrewts on the mind, Toddles scampered into Magical Menagerie and his already enormous eyes grew five more times their size.

Toddles want! Toddles want!

Not knowing where to even begin (though those colored pegs behind the counter were calling his name), Toddles scuttled and darted this way and that. Maybe Toddles could use Mister Master Headmaster's sack of wizarding moneies to buy Toddles a ferret? They ran around just like he did!

Too excited, Toddles was, to notice other studensies right now.

She wandered around the aisles trying to decide if she wanted one of these or if she wanted an owl. Through her wanderings, she spotted a girl about her age.

"See anything interesting?" She was in the mood for interesting. It was a bit of an inherited trade.

Interesting?

Hmm. Harri brought her hand up to stroke her chin, resting it on her other arm that she snaked around her torso, blue irises looked around once more for something...interesting. Some turtles, plimpies, hermit crabs, and then...a house elf?

The hand stroking her chin moved to point at the creature and she gave the other girl a look that said 'there's your interesting'.

If Nimma no see, Nimma no feel sad for any messes made! Toddles was so thoughtful, he was!

Eyes twinkling like the shinies in the big hourglasses back in the castle, Toddles pulled the strings loose on the coin purse and peered inside with one of his big eyes like he did the telescopes he was meant to be cleaning but rarely every finished.

"Oooooh boiled sweet potatosies! Toddles no good at counting moneies!"

Wallowing with droopy ears, Toddles gave a loud sniffle and looked around.

"Oh Oh! Mistress studentsies! Tell Toddles what this is?" he pleaded while holding up a small fist full of shiny bronze coins. "Enough for Toddles to buy the fluffy soft scrub brushsies?"

Valencia, however, was just staring rather impolitely at the large set of eyes. They were so big. Valencia was sure her mother had what psychologists called "cute aggression" where she'd just want to hold and squeeze and love cute things. It was in this moment, looking at those large set of eyes and just wanting to give them a squeeze, that the young girl wondered if the trait was genetic.

But instead of offering to squeeze the small creature, she just tilted her head. "I'm not sure it's for sale."

This later seemed to be proven true when the house elf asked for some help counting money.

"Oh! I can help!" she said rushing forward. "I'm good at counting and money."

Was it him or did young ones always enter his shop when he was feeding the creatures? That always seemed to be the way but that was quite alright with him. Evan had his eyes on the two young girls and was that... a house elf? Well that was curious. Had he ever had the pleasure of having a house elf in his shop? Not that he could recall but this was only his second summer here.

Closing up one of the cages he had just put a small dish of creature food into, the older man turned on his heel and made his way over to the small group, a warm friendly smile on his face. "Hello, I'm Evan the shopkeeper here at the Menagerie. If you have any questions about any of the creatures or need assistance with anything please don't hesitate to ask." It was after his job to help everyone but more importantly he enjoyed interacting with all of his customers whither they bought something or not! He truly believed there was the perfect familiar out there for everyone it was just a matter of finding it.

Oh, kneazles. And frogs. Where could she put those?

He found it almost ironic that he had no familiar (no, Picketta did not count) and had often wondered if he should rectify that. His family of bowtruckles who were back home keeping his sister entertained as living dolls - they had volunteered, mostly - were vividly on his mind as he scanned the shelves, his own thoughts loud and drowning out the voices from a few aisles over.

Though what did draw his attention away from his thoughts was the presence of one Chloe Kettleburn...covered in creatures. Why was he not the least bit surprised? Chuckling, he approached her and offered his hand to some of the puffskeins on her shoulder to smell before gently patting their fluff. "I can tell you from personal experience that newts take fondly to hair."

He then allowed the puffskein to nestle in on his shoulders right next to his neck. "You could always write me about that too, you know."


What in the world?! Evan's attention was drawn to the young lady with the puffskein's on her shoulders and rats in her pockets. He had nothing at all wrong with anyone coming in and playing with the creatures but normally they didn't end up in pockets and carried about the shop. At least not several at once! Just so each one was returned to it's proper cage/tank and none was harmed there was no problem. The man knew how quickly things could get out of hand though which was why he kept the girl and her friend who had just joined her in his sights.

Now they were playing with a kitten too? One of the more playful ones at that. These two reminded him of his kids and grandchildren... namely Hady. That girl had always been all about creatures, truth was she still was but now. Down the aisle he went to see if they needed any help with anything. "That kitten there is one of the curious ones, keep your sights on her at all times please," Evan let them know as he got within comfortable speaking distance. "I'm the shopkeeper here at the Magical Menagerie. My name is Evan and if either of you need anything just let me know."

Toddles was usually good with names of the misters and missus but today was not one of those days. Today Toddles was way way waywaywaywayway too distracted by thoughts of using his moneies to gets himself a pet! Therefore they became Missus Vanilla and Missus Hurry in his memory.

"Ha-mu-ster-s," he repeated. That was a funny sounding name and made Toddles think about ham. Were these fuzzy tiny pigs then? No, they squeaks like studentsies' fluffy pygmy puffs and other mices Toddles sometimes sees in the kitchens. "Toddles on thinks of getting one..." But maybe if he only got one then it would feel sad and lonely without a friendsies? He had lots and lots of gold shinies in his bag. He could surely get two or even three!

"Oh no," he said somewhat gravely with a shake of the head which sent his floppy ears this way and that. "Mister Master Headmaster gives Toddles and the others shinies to buy supplies for Hogwarts. But Toddles lost his list so can't but what Mister Master Headmaster asky for."

Only question Toddles had one of the missus had answered for him. So the elf only shuffled his feet eagerly.

"Missus Vanilla and Missus Hurry help Toddles. Toddles no need you," he said cheerfully but bluntly with a wiiiiiiiiiiiiiide gleaming grin. Nimma had tried to practice etiquette with him in the days preceding his first shopping trip to Diagon Alley, but Toddles had found that SO SO SO boring. Worse than ironing studentsies bed sheets!

Anna had her bright pink Pygmy Puff on her shoulder as she walked into the Magical Menagerie and, to be fair, the fact there was a house elf there didn't phase her one bit. Two of her cousins owned house-elves, so she just supposed that one over there belonged to yet another pureblood family.

Posh people, they were. Those who owned house-elves. And Mandy. She wasn't posh at all but did have a house elf. That particular one seemed to be hanging out with two kids, so perhaps it was their babysitter.

Anyways, the Gryffindor turned away and went looking for the pet food isle to try and find what she was there for.

Thinking about getting another tattoo...still got inferi bite scars I gotta modify and, well, this shop always sets me at ease." He then allowed the puffskein to nestle in on his shoulders right next to his neck. "You could always write me about that too, you know."
It warmed Chloe's heart that Derf was so tender with the creatures. Even a creature as unappealing to some people as a rat... and she saw him letting him that puffskein put a tongue up his nose. It took a real man to let that happen. "I don't steal. I'm just making friends. They looked lonesome." Her heart sort of ached for them to be let out of their crate.

She flashed a smile at his answer, reaching out to pat the puffeskein and Derf's cheek at the same time. That's a fair assessment. I think i didn't want to bother you, or anyone, but that's me presuming to know how other people feel. How about I get a tattoo with you? Maybe I'll get your name tattooed on my arm, with a big badger face." Chloe grinned broadly at the idea. "Best silly tea friends."

Just so each one was returned to it's proper cage/tank and none was harmed there was no problem. The man knew how quickly things could get out of hand though which was why he kept the girl and her friend who had just joined her in his sights.

Now they were playing with a kitten too? One of the more playful ones at that. These two reminded him of his kids and grandchildren... namely Hady. That girl had always been all about creatures, truth was she still was but now. Down the aisle he went to see if they needed any help with anything. "That kitten there is one of the curious ones, keep your sights on her at all times please," Evan let them know as he got within comfortable speaking distance. "I'm the shopkeeper here at the Magical Menagerie. My name is Evan and if either of you need anything just let me know."
Oh, dear! The shopkeeper was here, and he obviously didn't think that she could handle kittens. Didnt he now she was currently carrying at least five other of his creatures right now? She could handle... ow! Bitey kitten! "I noticed that some of the creatures seem like they wanted a little special love and attention. I hope you don't mind." She lifted the kitten for him to see. "My name is Chloe. Thank you for letting us visit with your animals, Mr. Evan. Do you have any extra special dog toys? My little girl deserves a treat for putting up with me leaving for Hogwarts in a few weeks."

Oh. Valencia did have a question. "There's an approved list of pets I can take to school, isn't there? My parents said I could get whatever I want -- well, it was my mum who said that -- because, according to her, it's easy to sneak pets in."

Wait. There was a question in there.

"What do you think? I kind of want a lizard. But maybe I shouldn't? My older brother keeps grasshoppers and hasn't gotten in trouble. I don't know if those count as 'pets' though."

"And I'm Harri! With an i." She said, raising her free hand. "Very nice to meet you both."

"So Toddles, your Mister Master Headmaster gave you money to buy hamsters? That's very kind of him." He must really care for his house elves.

"Hi Harri." Valencia greeted excitedly. It would be good to know people before school started. She wanted lots of friends. Being friendly was a good place to start.

She busied herself creating stacks of four gold coins when the house elf answered the question. "Won't you get in trouble buying hamsters instead of supplies...?"

"Missus Vanilla and Missus Hurry help Toddles. Toddles no need you," he said cheerfully but bluntly with a wiiiiiiiiiiiiiide gleaming grin. Nimma had tried to practice etiquette with him in the days preceding his first shopping trip to Diagon Alley, but Toddles had found that SO SO SO boring. Worse than ironing studentsies bed sheets!

Harri grinned at the other girl, Valencia. She liked her named too, but it took too much effort to say, she preferred to call people by a shortened version of their names. But they weren't that close yet so maybe after this, when they really become friends, she could ask her.

For now, Harri got distracted at the arrival of the shopkeeper. "Hello, Mr. Evan." She showed him the hamster in his hand in way of greeting, and chuckled a bit when Toddles told him, in a rather frank way, that he wasn't needed. As for questions, she didn't have one but Valencia and she seemed smart so the eleven year old listened in. She wanted a lizard? As far as Harri knew, the only reptile really allowed was a toad. She kind of want a toad! Hmm. Decisions...decisions.

Letting the hamster scurry from one arm to the other, Harri refocused on the house elf. "You need only one hamster? I think you can go with this one," she offered the one in her hand, being helpful.

But something else piqued her curiosity. "Oh, Toddles. Did you say Hogwarts? I'm going to Hogwarts!" She gave Valencia a questioning look as well.

Aaww, the young girl called him Mister Evan! How sweet was that! Evan couldn't stop himself from smiling at the young girls as well as the house elf. Toddles didn't need him. Welp. That certainly told him, now didn't it? The frankness in which it was said normally would have had him raising an eyebrow but it was also said cheerfully which was enough to make him chuckle. "Thank you for your honesty, Toddles."

One of the girl did have a question and a very good one at that. "Hogwarts does indeed have an approved list. Cats, owls, rats and toads." It was a rather peculiar list in his opinion but it had always been that way. "I'm sure there has been quite the number of students that do sneak in pets, however I would highly discourage you from doing this as I wouldn't want you getting into trouble should you be caught or anything to happen to your pet as it shouldn't be there in the first place."

"I will tell you this though, there's barns full of creatures at Hogwarts. I believe it depends on the Creature professor and the Headmaster at the time but I have been told that sometimes they allow students to keep a pet in there if given the proper permission to do so first." It was up to the young girl to find this out for sure though and get that permission. He did have a wide variety of lizards though in the shop if that was truly what she would like.

No, it wasn't that he didn't think she could handle the kitten. It was simply him being cautious not only for her own safety but for that of all the creatures in the shop. Evan smiled warmly. "Not at all. In fact I love seeing people such as yourselves," he nodded towards both her and Derf, "who loves them as much as I do to come in and play with them. I do make sure they all get to stretch their paws and wings and legs as much as possible but I am only one man." It was a hard task making sure all the creatures got time to play and explore but he always worked it out somehow. "It's a pleasure to meet you, Chloe. You're quite welcome to come and enjoy the shop anytime you like." As long as the shop was open of course. "In fact I do! We just got in a fresh shipment of toys. There's squeaky toys and bouncy balls that flash colors, stuffed animals that make sounds as well." That was only listing a few!



SPOILER!!: Anna!

Posh people, they were. Those who owned house-elves. And Mandy. She wasn't posh at all but did have a house elf. That particular one seemed to be hanging out with two kids, so perhaps it was their babysitter.

Anyways, the Gryffindor turned away and went looking for the pet food isle to try and find what she was there for.


Another young one entered the shop and right away Evan looked up from his files of paperwork, it was time to place an order for a fresh stock of medicines that he was running low on. "If you need an assistance, please let me know!" he called out with a cheerful smile. He was always ready to help and have a short chat with his customers.

Toddles grinned at the mister. He was most welcome! Toddles not so sure what for but the mister was.

What else the mister had to say about pets was nothing Toddles needed to worry about too much. Toddles was an elfsies, not a studentsies. So none of those rules applied to him anyway.

"Mister Master Headmaster listsies is gone. Toddles can't but what he no knows he has to buy. Tea pots making no hissing noises when no elfsies in the kitchen to hears it!" It only made sense to the house elf and Toddles was meant to spend these shinies so Toddles could do that! "Toddles did, Missus Hurry! Toddles is one of the elfsies who helps in the kitchens. Nimma bringsies Toddles to Hogwarts and helps Toddles makes it his homesie!" Round eyes focusing on the ha-mu-star in Missus Hurry's pretty handsies, Toddles cupped his own so he could be given the cute fluffy scrub brushy.

And once the Mister Master Shopkeeper went about his business, Toddles offer Missus Hurry and Missus Vanilla his services in bringing special pets to Hogwarts. Studentsies rules no apply to elfsies.

Valencia nodded enthusiastically to Harri's question. "I'll be there in the fall. First year." It didn't occur to her that the other girl could have not been a Hogwarts student, but she probably should have considered that. Whoops.

She then considered the shopkeeper's words about pets. That was too bad. None of those animals were super interesting. "Can you teach a rat a trick?" she asked. That could be fun. Or maybe she could get a fancy cage with a lot of tunnels to watch the rat walk through. That was an option.

She nodded slowly to Toddles' logic. It sounded similar to the tree falling in the forest saying. Valencia wasn't going to stop the house elf from spending the money, but she couldn't help but still be a little worried that he (? she assumed it was a he, she didn't know much about house elves) would get in trouble.

"If you think it's okay, each of these is four galleons." she said pointing to the stacks she lined up. "Each stack is enough for one and you'll even get some silver and bronze coins back."
