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!

Ellie gave Sam a long worried glance before she pushed opened the door and headed inside in the shop. Could she really trust that a DA shopkeeper could tell her what was wrong with her rat and cure him? Trusting wasnít something she did very easily for many reasons.

With a hard knot in the pit of her stomach the 13 year old girl walked slowly up to the oak counter not bothering to even glance at all the interesting creature cages or accessories. She was there on a mission. Licking her lips she called out "Hello, can I get some help with my rat?"
It never failed. Anytime he was doing something around the shop someone walked in and needed his help. Truth was though, that there was always something that needed to be done around the shop. That's just how it was when working with such a large variety of creatures. Someone had to feed, water, clean up after and tend to all there needs. Not to mention stock selves of other items as well. And it just so happened that that someone was this man here and he loved every single minute of it!

Evan made his way down one of the aisles towards the front of the shop where he had heard the young voice calling for help with her... rat? He was in no way a vet but he did know his fair share about creatures and what to do for them. Standing there was a young lady with a rather old looking rat on her shoulder. "Hello there! I'm Evan the shopkeeper and I'll help you anyway I can. What seems to be the problem?" he inquired warmly with a gentle smile on his face. Clearly she was here in regards to her rat but was it ill, did she want to buy it medicine or special food or something?

Ellie had lifted down her rat to her arms and was stroking him affectionately over his back by the time that the shopkeeper appeared to give her assistance. She was silent for a moment trying to decide how to best describe her worry for Sam. The gentle smile on the shopkeeperís face was somehow comforting as Ellie held her rat out for inspection and said worriedly. "This is my old rat Sam. I've had him for 8 years. He has been sleeping way too much lately. His whiskers have greyed, are they supposed to do that? He isnít eating very much and well he doesnít even hide anymore if he sees a cat like he is supposed to." That about summed it up. She couldnít think of anything else to say except "Do you have some magical medicine or food that you think will perk him up?"

Evan made a strong point of listening to what the young girl was telling him. As with anything in life, the more you knew about something the better it would be to solve any problems. So was the case with this. The more he knew and understood about the rat in front of him the more likely he would be able to help.

"Well hello there, Sam, it's very nice to meet you," Evan greeted the old feeble looking rat that was held up in the girls hands. There was no doubt about it that this creature was old. "The graying of his whiskers is normal. That happens with many creatures and people as well as we start to get older. He's likely very tired because he's not a baby anymore, the older we get the more tired some of us become. Now that doesn't mean he doesn't want to hide from the cats or play with you, it just means that he may not be able to go as fast as before."

"I do have some vitamins here in the shop that could help boost him immune system as well as some food here that is made smaller, softer and it's easier for older rats like our buddy Sam here to digest." With that being said he reached out to lightly give Sam a small pet on his little head. "What do you think, Sam? How about we give the new food a try and see if he likes it?" The question was directed to Ellie with a soft smile as he turned leading her down one of the aisles. If the food and vitamins didn't work there was always another option he could go to but he hoped that wouldn't be necessary.

Giovanni walked into the shop, hoping buy his sister Giorgia a pet. She did say an owl but... eh. Owls were a bit too... mainstream, let's say. He could buy her something like a raven. Were ravens allowed in Beauxbatons? Ravens don't cause rackets and messes, so he guessed they would be allowed. Giovanni preferred ravens much more than owls himself. He would just explain in the letter he'd send her. He started looking for a raven. Where were they? Why were things so hard to find in shops in Diagon Alley? He even had to spend 10 minutes just looking for the Ministry robes (that were now safely in his bag) in Madam Malkin's. A quite tedious ten minutes, they were. Anyway, back to ravens.

Giovanni could not find any ravens, whatsoever. He decided to ask the shopkeeper. He strode to the counter and said, "Excuse me, do you have any ravens?"

She was about to go down the aisle after shopkeeper when Sam gave off a little week piiiiiiiip and then closed his eyes, and was silent and dead. Pulse raising with her anxiousness and worry Ellie tried to get her rat moving again by small pokes and strokes but not worked. Cradling Sam up to her chest with both her hands Ellie quipped loudly as tears started to stream down her face and the cruel reality dawned on her.. "Noooooooooooooooooooooo! Nooooooooooooooooo! He canít be dead. Sam is not dead. Not dead."

"Ready kitty?"

C L I C K.

"I know, I know, I know. Shhhhh, relax. You look absolutely adorable, stunning, I promise." Delilah cooed at the tiny white kitten, hoping she'd relax more for another picture.

But this kitten was not a fan of being held up with one hand and Delilah only had one of the available; the other was preoccupied by operating the camera. Sorry kitty. But now that the picture was taken, the kitty was allowed to have both of her hands after the camera was lowered to hang by its strap once more. "Hi sweetie. Hi." she cradled the little lady and gave her a soft kiss on the head. Precious little thing.

They might peck you, and trust me, you don't want to be pecked by a raven. Giovanni placed the necessary coins on the counter, and the raven took one gallon and flew off. "No, come back!" , he shouted. Now for a raven chase. The 22-year-old continued running after the bird for exactly 7 minutes and 32 seconds. Then, the raven stopped and perched itself on the top shelf. It dropped the galleon into Giovanni's left eye. "OW!" , he shrieked in pain. Covering his left eye, he picked the coin up and looked back up at the bird.

Evan chuckled lightly as he came upon the sight of the teenage girl cradling the small white ball of kitten that didn't appear to found of photos. "Hello there, I'm Evan the shopkeeper here at the Menagerie. If there's anything at all I can assist you with here in the shop today please let me know." Not only was it his job but he loved to help anyway he could.

"Indeed I most cer-" Evan had started to reply to the young gentleman that appeared at the counter when all of a sudden seemingly out of nowhere the bird in question landed on the man's shoulder! Evan gave quite the start as all the birds in his shop are in cages with locks for a reason. Before he even knew what was happening the gentleman was chasing this raven all about. Simple magic would have been an easier way to fix this. "Goodness! Are you alright?! I am so sorry about that... I have no idea how he got out I keep every cage locked..." he quickly pulled out his wand and with a quick flick of it sent the raven right back to it's cage unharmed before it got itself or anyone hurt again. As the man could very well see they very well did have ravens here in the shop.

One second Evan was giving Sam a tiny little pat on his head and the very next the young girl was shrieking that her rat was dead. Dear Merlin had he just killed this young girls pet rat?! Evan knew he hadn't caused the old rats death of course but his heart broke as he looked at the girl standing there with tears streaming fast down her cheeks, she reminded him so much of his own daughters. He needed to do something. Now.

"Sam will always be with you. I bet you had tons of fun together, didn't you?" he asked her quietly, pulling out her wand and to accio her a few tissues which he passed to her so she could blow her nose and wipe her eyes. He would have offered her hug but being he didn't know her at all that probably wasn't the best of ideas so a distraction was the very next best thing.

Giovanni pushed 22 galleons, 5 sickles and 24 knuts into the middle of the counter.

Ah, a Beast Protection Officer! Evan smiled warmly. "Well it's nice to meet you. I'm Evan, the shopkeeper. If he is the one you would like that is the one you can have," he chuckled lightly nodding his head. "I trust as a beast protection officer you know how to care for a raven and that they are rather intelligent birds, yes?" They could be quite the handful as the man had already seen.

"Will you be needing anything else today? I have cages of all sizes, perches, food and toys, vitamins and treats." Everything one could need to keep their familiar happy and healthy. If it wasn't there in the shop, it could be ordered.

"It's nice to meet you too. And yes, I do know how to care for a raven.", Giovanni said, smiling back. The bird's not for me anyway, it's for my sister, he thought.

"Yes, can I have a cage, please?", he asked, "And a perch would be nice too."

He needed to do something. Now.

"Sam will always be with you. I bet you had tons of fun together, didn't you?" he asked her quietly, pulling out her wand and to accio her a few tissues which he passed to her so she could blow her nose and wipe her eyes. He would have offered her hug but being he didn't know her at all that probably wasn't the best of ideas so a distraction was the very next best thing.
Instead of being consoled by the shopkeepers soothing words Ellie got more upset and it made her shriek at him as she cradled her rat even closer if possible as tears still fell down her face. "You Killllllllllllllled him. He is deadd, because you touched him…My Sam…." She knew that was irrational, but she didn’t think of that right that instant. Her companion and prized pet was dead.

Snivelling and hiccuping Ellie accepted the tissues the shopkeeper gave her and blew her nose trying to calm down as she murmured embarrassed trying to explain her outburst. "I'm sooorry..I didn’t mean that. I just.The rat was my mothers and after her death he has been like my extended connection to her." It probably sounded morbid and silly or worse, but Ellie didn’t know how else to make the shopkeeperman understand her emotions.

Trying to smile but only managing a sad grimace she said quietly still snivelling. "Me and Sam had lot’s of fun together. We played everyday and i took him everywhere with me." As the thought struck her she made big eyes as another wash of tears came over her "How am i going to survive going to Hogwarts without him?" Nevermind that she’d have her twinbrother there.

Default Daddy/daughter duo up for grabs!
Rhibear ~ Madam Solo ~ Pirate Princess ~ Gryffinclaw ~ Fiery Phoenix

Gaston hadn't particularly wanted to come to Diagon Alley today. Ever since his unceremonious departure from Hogwarts, the place had become nothing more than a bad reminder of all he'd lost, especially in summer. There were too many Hogwarts students out and about (not to mention the crowds of people in town for the Quidditch World Cup), and the thought of a chance encounter with a former student made him feel... well, it made him feel a lot of mixed emotions. But his daughter needed an outing, and besides, he'd promised Andre he'd help chaperone the Chateau Croyance trip to Diagon Alley.

While he was here, he was going to make use of his time and cross a few things off his shopping list. First stop of the day: The Magical Menagerie, to get some shampoo and a new brush for Phantom and food for Raoula - the picky little kneazle would only eat the food that came from this shop! He entered the shop, holding tightly to his three-year-old daughter's hand, and made a beeline for the display area. Sometime while he was perusing the cat supplies, Desiree broke free of his grip. His eyes followed her, and he chuckled to himself as she peered into the reptile room and proceeded to say hi to every creature in the shop.


Desiree skipped along at her father's side as they walked into the store. One look around, and her face fell. This shop didn't look very fun! Where were all the toys and candy? She bounced up and down while Daddy looked at the kitty stuff; then a door caught her eye. Ooh! What's in there? While Daddy was busy, she let go of his hand and went to get a closer look. Her bright blue eyes lit up as she peeked inside and saw... lots and lots of animals. There were froggies and lizards and turtles and even some animals she didn't know. "Daddy, lookit all the animals!" she squealed excitedly. She was all smiles as she waved at the animals. "Hi, froggies! Hi, lizards! Hi, Mr. Turtle!"

"Wonderful!" Evan smiled nodding his head. "They do make lovely familiars once properly trained but I'm sure you shouldn't have any problems with that at all." Not since he said he was part of the Beast department in the ministry. Not that ravens were even remotely close to beasts but that meant he knew how to handle creatures with respect.

"Absolutely. That will be an exact four galleons for the cage and perch." Evan range that up into the register. Once this was taken care of they could go select a cage and perch for the raven.

Evan knew the voice of a small child anywhere. Having several at home himself and being a grandfather there was no denying the pure joy in the voice of a toddler. He watched the small girl break free from her fathers grasp and head right for the reptile room which made him laugh softly to himself, mostly little ones headed for the kittens and puppies!

Making his way to the room than himself he could help but smile as heard the child saying 'hello' to each and every animal! My goodness wasn't she adorable!
"Oh, my! Did you see that? I think he may have waved back at you!" Evan exclaimed to the young girl looking at one of the lizards who was up near the front of his tank. He looked towards the man who was clearly the child's father and smiled. "I'm Evan the shopkeeper. Is there anything special I can help you two with today?"

Evan let out a slow breath as the girl accused him of killing her rat which he clearly did not do. However in times of grief such as this one and being a father as well as a grandfather he knew it was best to sometimes let emotions take their course. Which was what was happening here.

It was only a few seconds before the child apologized and explained the reason behind her sudden outburst which made his heart hurt for her. "It's quite alright. Don't you worry about me. I know things may look very bleak right and it's going to take time until you feel better but he's always there with you. I'm sure you have lots and lots of photos of the two of you together hmm?" He offered her another tissue and a gentle smile. "Would you like me to help you make him a nice little box or something?" For if she was going to bury him later or something like that.

Before heading over to the owlery, Nettie made sure she stopped by the menagerie to stock up on things for Rudy and Boomer. Her house was about to become an actual zoo - a cat, a dog AND an owl all in one place? Her father was probably going to go mad. Still, with the events of last term still fresh in her mind, she'd been able to convince him that an owl was a good idea for the family. Especially with them going to Beauxbatons now. They needed to communicate more - and a two way mirror was probably a good idea as well. Hmmm. Maybe she'd stop there next...

First things first - treats for her existing pets. They needed to be reminded that she still loved them! Checking out the cat treats, she tapped her chin as she tried to remember which ones Rudy had liked the best.

So it was official. Diagon Alley just kept getting cooler by the minute. There was a pet shop just up ahead, and it had all of Charlie's attention drawn toward it. Kneazles? Weren't those like a cat just with superpowers or something? Then there were crups, which were dogs with forked tails! He'd always wanted to see one up close. All the other items seemed cool, too, but Charlie was a dog person. Too bad it didn't seem like he could bring one with him to school.

Charlie made his way around the shop, not really wanting to buy anything right now but looking at how awesome everything was instead. That was when he rounded an aisle and noticed this girl up ahead. She was older but really cute, so he decided to pretend like he, too, was looking for...uhhh, whatever it was she was looking at.

He approached the cat treats and gazed up at them with a pretend interest. "So which one do you like best?" he chimed in. Although, it looked like she had no idea which one she wanted. Charlie tried to pull a smooth move and stand like a nonchalant teenager might, but he only ended up knocking a good fifteen treats or so off a nearby display. They tumbled to the floor and scattered at his feet.

Oh, come on! Really?!

Oh, come on! Really?!
Trinetta had just been about to pick up a bag of tilapia treats from the shelf when someone approached her. She looked at the boy and raised an eyebrow. Was he in her year? He looked younger, but then again, she was a terrible judge of ages thanks to how short she was. Everyone seemed older than her because they were usually her height or taller...

Was...was he asking what HER personal favorite was? "Uh...I haven't actually tried any of them...you know these are for cats right?" she asked with mild concern. He seemed confused...

She bit her lip to stop herself from laughing at what happened next. A small snort escaped and she quickly threw her hand over her mouth before smiling at him. "Well that was graceful," she teased him lightheartedly before gathering the bags from the floor.

Wait. What? Now it was Charlie's turn to laugh. After a few seconds of amused laughter, he looked up at her and nodded. "Of course I know it's for cats!" he said. "I just thought maybe you had a cat and had a preference for it." This was his third encounter with girls in Diagon Alley, and all three had acted equally insane. He had a feeling magical girls were going to be the death of him.

This conversation had definitely not taken the turn Charlie had hoped it would (he had hoped to look super cool in front of one of Hogwarts' girls). Instead, he was watching her pick up his scattered mess on the floor. "Sorry about that, and thanks for picking them up," he added. He laughed at her comment about him being graceful. Maybe there was hope for a decent conversation after all.

"So let's start this one over," he offered. He glanced up at the selection she seemed to be looking at before Hurricane Charlie had come along. "Tilapia Treats, huh? And you should know I don't actually own a cat." His sister did, though. Close enough, huh?

"I DO have a cat,"
Trinetta told him with a smile. "AND a dog. Maybe an owl soon. My father and I haven't quite decided," she said with a shrug, grabbing a bag of the tuna treats as well, just to be safe.

"If you don't own a cat, why are you in here shopping for cat treats then?" she asked with a sly grin. She was quite certain she knew the answer. She'd been an eager first year desperate to please once, too.

After getting his wand and a few other school supplies, Heath's next stop was the one he was most excited about, the Magical Menagerie. He wasn't 100% whether he was going to Hogwarts (or in this case, Beauxbatons) in the fall or be homeschooled by his grandparents - his mum didn't like the idea of him starting school so far from home. She thought it was too much for him too soon, and he was inclined to agree. Having all the Hogwarts and Beauxbatons students in one building sounded crowded, and he didn't do well with crowds - but his mum was letting him get a pet anyway since Fiy and Ariel got one the year they started Hogwarts. Now the only question was what kind of pet did he want?

Whatever animal he got, he wanted something calm and gentle and preferably quiet, something that would tolerate being held and petted and wouldn't randomly attack him... unlike his brother's crazy owl. That bird was a menace! It liked to dive bomb unsuspecting people and peck them for no reason, and it was SOOO LOUD! If he had a knut for every time that bird woke him up hooting in the middle of the night, he'd be a millionaire! Well, at least he didn't have to be around it much anymore, since Fiy moved to Canada.

Heath wandered into the cat room, his eyes scanning the cages. Maybe a cat was the right pet for him?

Yoyo loved the menagerie. It was one of the best shops in Diagon with easily the best wares- animals, would always beat out candy, books, clothes, or toys any day, especially the kind the Magical Menagerie kept. The tortoises with their jeweled shells never failed to delight the eleven-year-old, and the rats playing their never-ending game of- actually she didn't know what sport that was supposed to be- was always fun to watch, but today Yolanda Luna had her eyes on the brightly colored plumage of the shops fwoopers.

They were so-cool, so-big, and kinda terrifying. Yoyo had seen them only in captivity - places like this store, the zoo, her granny's house- but she remained utterly captivated by each one she laid her eyes on. Like this big one with the violently purple feathers- or the baby fwooper with its neon yellow.

"Wicked." she breathed out, tasting the word on her tongue. It was new and as colorful as any of the aviaries before her.

They were so-cool, so-big, and kinda terrifying. Yoyo had seen them only in captivity - places like this store, the zoo, her granny's house- but she remained utterly captivated by each one she laid her eyes on. Like this big one with the violently purple feathers- or the baby fwooper with its neon yellow.

"Wicked." she breathed out, tasting the word on her tongue. It was new and as colorful as any of the aviaries before her.
Blake was in a whirl wind of emotions, thought, and sights. His dad being a wizard he had of course seen magic before, but after his parents got divorced he had lived with his mom in the muggle world. In fact Blake was actually very surprised to get his acceptance letter. Regardless, he needed a minuet to collect himself before venturing further to get his wand. His father was still at Gringotts getting gold out. So he stepped in to the what appeared to be a pet shop.

He was so busy looking the shelves he didn't noticed the girl at first, she looked to be about his age. Then he heard her say 'wicked', turned to see what she was looking at, he blurted out "Is that it's name?"

Blake instantly blushed a deep red ... gosh that was stupid to say.

Yoyo didn't notice the boy very quickly, but she did not startle when his presence finally became known to her. She twisted about, her head, neck, and shoulders now pointing to the boy but her eyes still on the Fwooper. "It could be," the young girl began, her vividly green eyes flickering to take in the kid beside her. "If I bought him it would be, anyway," Yoyo added seriously, nodding her head as if this tidbit were more than fact- as if it were law. A smile broke out across her face a moment later, the kind of smile that was as carefree and innocent as a small rabbit.

"How are you? Eleven? I'm Eleven. I'm about to head to Hogwarts and everything." Another law, another fact, this one just as wonderful as the thought of a new pet. It was easy to get Yoyo talking, not so much to get her to stop.

He wasn't 100% whether he was going to Hogwarts (or in this case, Beauxbatons) in the fall or be homeschooled by his grandparents - his mum didn't like the idea of him starting school so far from home. She thought it was too much for him too soon, and he was inclined to agree. Having all the Hogwarts and Beauxbatons students in one building sounded crowded, and he didn't do well with crowds - but his mum was letting him get a pet anyway since Fiy and Ariel got one the year they started Hogwarts. Now the only question was what kind of pet did he want?

Whatever animal he got, he wanted something calm and gentle and preferably quiet, something that would tolerate being held and petted and wouldn't randomly attack him... unlike his brother's crazy owl. That bird was a menace! It liked to dive bomb unsuspecting people and peck them for no reason, and it was SOOO LOUD! If he had a knut for every time that bird woke him up hooting in the middle of the night, he'd be a millionaire! Well, at least he didn't have to be around it much anymore, since Fiy moved to Canada.

Heath wandered into the cat room, his eyes scanning the cages. Maybe a cat was the right pet for him?
Nem wasn't really sure why they had come into this shop, seeing as the whole pet issue was still up in the air. They couldn't get a kneazle, because apparently you had to be fifteen to buy one and they were still eleven, and could probably only barely pass as thirteen. They couldn't get Karlin to come in and buy a kneazle kitten on their behalf because they still needed the money and almost-thirty-two galleons was completely absurd. They weren't even sure if they could get a standard, run of the mill kitten, because even those were almost ten galleons without the food and everything, and Nem and their twin had already had to get practically all of their school stuff from dad's friends or bought secondhand at minimum. So there was basically no point in coming in here, and they were really only torturing themself.

But, on the other hand, they liked looking at the animals. Nem rarely got a chance to interact with animals in their day to day life - unless you counted dad when he was in cat form, and Nem absolutely did not count that - so they were taking the opportunity to see them now.

Nem wandered through the shop, hands shoved into the pockets of their shorts and battered old sneakers squeaking against the floor, but when they got to the cat area, they found that someone was already there. Oh.

"You're in the way." He wasn't in the way at all, actually, but that wasn't the point.

Blake cringed a bit Ö of course.. the bird was for sale, it wouldn't have a name yet. He wanted to smack his palm on his forehead but thought that it would look weird.

He smiled at the girl, she was chipper that's for sure. What was it about girls that always made them want to talk so much. The girls in his primary school never stopped talking. Mrs. Martin often had to yell at them, why he thought witches would be any different than he had no idea.

"Yes I'm eleven. Starting my first year at Hogwarts as well." It gave Blake some comfort to know that there really were other first years to. My dad told me all about the houses Ö which are you hoping to be in?"
