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!

Default Evan, Pippa and Lia! <3
~ Mrs Steve Harrington ~ Friendly Neighbourhood Hufflepuff ~

Jude decided that not many persons would have issues choosing a pet. He just happened to beone of the weird ones that did. At least this was the case if he compared himself to his three siblings: they certainly had no issue deciding on what they wanted. It occurred to him then he was indeed a weirdo; his siblings were all normal. A friendly and cheerful voice jolted him out of his thoughts and reminded him that he was still staring at the snake. The Hufflepuff wasn’t startled, especially when he saw that the woman held a pair of rabbits under each arm.

“Hello. He’s okay looking, I guess.’’ His brown eyes widened when the redhead mentioned taking the snake out of the cage. Let him crawl over Jude’s arms? He resisted a shudder. The thought of a reptile crawling over him wasn’t appeal-

The sudden appearance of Evan stalled his heart. That’s right. Ryder Jude Anders stood frozen for a good five seconds. His brain seemed to have turned to mush when Evan smiled at him. “Er. Um.” Clearly flustered he smiled {just a tiny one for now} back at Evan. Thankfully his cousin had perfect timing. He managed to prod her in the side before she slipped away.

By that time, Jude seemed to have collected himself somewhat. “H- hi, Evan.” And this time, his secret crush got a slightly wider smile despite his stutter {which seemed to only happen around the other boy}. “Want to take a cl- closer look at the snakes?” It was a good way to get him talking to the Ravenclaw. Sort of.

To the shopkeeper, Jude said, “He wouldn’t bite?” Was he apprehensive? You bet. Was his heart now hammering because being in Evan’s presence made him nervous? A ginormous yes.

Who knew his desire for his own accompanied it.

So that's what he was here for today. A cat. A kitten, specifically. His parents had said yes, probably because there was still a lot of guilt and uncomfort in their relationship. A kitten wasn't going to fix everything, but this time around he didn't really mind his parents trying to buy him back.

Entering the magical managerie, he eyed the kittens as he passed, but headed straight towards the shopkeeper who was assisting someone else to make sure he could pet them and hold them before he made his decision on which one. He waited patiently, eying the other student looking at snakes and realizing he was a familiar face. He was pretty sure his name was Jude and a Hufflepuff. He hadn't had many in depth conversations with him, but he seemed really nice from the times they had interacted. He smiled in a friendly manner, curious as to the other students interest in snakes.

Pippa smiled as another boy came up to them and waited patiently for her to get to him. Then she noticed the reaction the first boy had to his appearance and smiled a bit more. She had got the feeling that perhaps a snake might not be the right pet for the first boy, but now that his friend had appeared, he was willing to meet one up close and personal. Well, it wouldn't hurt them to get to know a snake--a lot of people were afraid of snakes or disliked them, and that was terribly unfair. "No, he won't bite--he's not that sort of snake at all; just don't startle or threaten him. Most snakes are very gentle, and rather delicate--they can't stand too much heat or cold, and their skin can get hurt if they crawl over something too sharp, so you have to be careful where you keep them. Now this one," she continued, smiling at both boys as she used a nonverbal spell to release the magical barrier in front of the snake, "is a corn snake. They're docile, easy to care for, and they don't get too large. And I think they're very pretty," Pippa added as she slowly and gently lifted the orange and reddish snake from the case and let it start to wind up her left arm. "This one's name is Sylvanus. You can hold him if you want to."

SPOILER!!: Emmerson and Dahlia

They likely had new flavours of lip gloss AND she would wear her down about real lipstick while she was at it.

While Alexa Cambridge went to speak with the shopkeeper, Emm walked along the kneazle cages. She thought to get one, having grown quite fond of Archimedes in her many visits to Auntie Jessa's, but kneazles weren't allowed in the castle. In the end, it was better to stick to her toy dragon because at least he could give her and Kizzy cuddles at night.

"You're cuter than ten buttons." She decided, stopping by a kneazle kitten that stretched against the bar of its cage.

But Williamson would never let her break the rules and she wasn't in any mood to try convincing him either. It just wasn't meant to be.

With Sir Frederik Puffington tucked against her neck comfortably, Lia tugged the door to the Magical Menagerie open and stepped inside. Her sweet pygmy puff was getting up there in age now but she still had a habit of spoiling him. They would get his favorite treats and some maybe a new toy or two.

She headed one of the aisles a bright smile tugging at her lips when she spotted two familiar faces. As she passed by the boys she gave her cousin Jude a light with her shoulder, her way of saying 'Hey you!'. Evan was given a grin as well. Normally she would've stopped to chat buuuuut something or well someone (someone and a kneazle) had caught her eye.

The almost third year walked towards the other slightly older girl who she now recognized holding the adorable kneazle baby. "Aaawww, how cute. Are you getting a kneazle?" Lia smiled at Emmerson.


Pippa had spoken with Madame Cambridge for a few minutes about what kinds of treats she was interested in, then, seeing the shop was starting to fill up a bit, called over Bo, her monkey, who obligingly carried out a tray of selections for the witch to choose from while Pippa took care of the rest of the customers. Eventually Pippa walked over to the Kneazle area, where she saw two girls admiring them (as well they might!) Just as Pippa came within earshot, she heard one girl ask the other if she was getting a kneazle--oh, Pippa couldn't think of a better choice for a pet! (although she always felt the creature she was with was the very best one) "Did you want a kneazle?," she said helpfully. "I can let you see some of them closer up, let you get acquainted and all. Picking a Kneazle is a very delicate matter--it's important to get just the right match."

A shop of creatures for Evan was akin to most kids in a candy store. He didn't want to take them all home or anything, but he did certainly want to say hello to them all and give them whatever attention they liked. For example, the rabbits the shopkeeper was holding too. He had to admit, he found them 20x cuter than the snake but all creatures had certain merits so he wouldn't discredit the serpent entirely either. It probably had it's own certain charms too.

So he gave up on staring at the rabbit and back to looking at the snake and the Hufflepuff who had a potential interest in the creature. He was briefly distracted again by the appearance of Lia and Sir Frederik who he smiled at as well and gave a small wave too. The familiarity with Jude did not go unnoticed and it gave the Ravenclaw even more of a curiosity. He trusted Dahlia was a good judge of character and the Hufflepuff had seemed nice before so maybe it would be worth getting to know him. Merlin knew he could use some non-female friends as try to get used to being around other males.

Any sort of fluster the other boy was feeling was completely lost on Evan, as most things social were but the fact he smiled back and actually remembered Evan's name was not. So even though he wasn't that interested in the serpent, he found himself accepting the invitation to see it anyways. "Hi Jude. Sure." He moved to Jude's side, peering a little closer while listening to the shopkeeper provide information on the reptile.

There were a few questions he could think to ask for follow up, but since it wasn't him interested he decided keeping his mouth shut and staying just an observer was best. An animal that shouldn't really be startled sounded risky to Ev, but supposed it wouldn't matter much for a home full of more docile siblings as well. I.E. ... not his. "I like his name." He couldn't help but comment on that part. Glancing over at Jude again, he nodded towards the snake. "You want to hold him? Are you interested in getting him?" He was just kind of curious what a snake felt like. Was it similar to Pascal the chameleon or super different?

The more she watched the charming kneazle stretching there in its cage, the more convinced she became she would have to get one for herself the MOMENT she graduated. Not before, never before. Artemis was getting to be a handful with anything smaller than himself.

BUT, someday.

Emm turned to continue around the shop when Dahlia walked up with her pygmy puff. Was she getting a kneazle? The girl set to shake her head "no", understanding it would be more of a hassle for less pay off, when the shopkeeper came over chipper as all get out. It was like the beginning of the perfect storm and Emmerson particularly liked being indulged.

"I wasn't really thinking of getting one." She admitted, sparing another glance to the caged creatures. "Only because we have a very grumpy Care of Magical Creatures Professor back at school, see. He wouldn't let me keep the kneazle warm and cozy in my bed no matter how much I begged, right Dahlia?" The worst, that's what William W. Williamson was.

"It's sad, really, they're all I've ever wanted since I was maybe 3. I don't suppose you have a way you could make the kneazel...say....invisible--or maybe if you had a potion we could use to make a washed up old man more amenable to rule changing. Would you like a kneazle, too, Dahlia?" Now that they were getting this sorted, it would help to have back up.

Pippa would be right: a snake was not the type of pet he had in mind for himself and Merlin knew that he disliked the feel of scaly skin {this was solely based on experience of using reptiles during Potion lessons}. Not to mention he was terrified of being poisoned by one. That was why the boy practically held on to each word the shopkeeper said. She seemed trustable and knowledgeable enough. Jude also wasn’t keen on looking like an idiot and a coward before Evan.

On the part of the Ravenclaw, Jude was surprised and so, so pleased that his name was remembered. Quite flattering actually, given the unfortunate fact that the two hadn’t talked much outside of classes. But was that about to change? At least Evan was willing to take a closer look at the snake with him. “Ye- yes. I’ll hold him.’’ Jude smiled, albeit nervously, to Pippa as he held out his hands. He mentally braced himself for the feel of the dry scaliness of the skin.

Then she shifted his attention back to Evan, finding himself wanting to look into those eyes for long moments. Yes, Jude’s brain still felt like mush and he almost forgot what he had been asked. “Erm. Not really? No. I. Erm.” He could feel his cheeks growing warm and knew he was turning pink. Jude averted his eyes to the snake. “I can’t decide what I want to get. Each summer since I started Hogwarts, my parents would ask what pet I wanted but I just can’t seem to decide.” Jude swung his gaze back to Evan. “W-weird, huh?” He could bet that Evan had it all together, from what he wanted in life to the style of his perfect hair. Jude admired those strands, by the way.

It was like the beginning of the perfect storm and Emmerson particularly liked being indulged.

"I wasn't really thinking of getting one." She admitted, sparing another glance to the caged creatures. "Only because we have a very grumpy Care of Magical Creatures Professor back at school, see. He wouldn't let me keep the kneazle warm and cozy in my bed no matter how much I begged, right Dahlia?" The worst, that's what William W. Williamson was.

"It's sad, really, they're all I've ever wanted since I was maybe 3. I don't suppose you have a way you could make the kneazel...say....invisible--or maybe if you had a potion we could use to make a washed up old man more amenable to rule changing. Would you like a kneazle, too, Dahlia?" Now that they were getting this sorted, it would help to have back up.


"Really?!" Pippa exclaimed. Things must have gotten stricter at Hogwarts since she was there--though she hadn't paid that much attention to the rules, for that matter. "That seems a bit restrictive, doesn't it? I mean, Kneazles are pretty similar to cats, and they allow those, right?" Pippa glanced at the girls for confirmation--surely they hadn't changed the rules for cats!

"Though...owning a Kneazle is a bit of a responsibility, so maybe it's best to wait until you're out of school and of age. Not everyone knows this, but you have to have license to own a Kneazle. They're a Class XXX Creature, because they're just enough different from regular cats that Muggles might notice. Although, there are some nice Kneazle-Cat mixes that don't require them, because they look just like regular cats--they're just a lot smarter."

Pippa had been admiring Dahlia's Pygmy Puff while she talked. "That's a very fine Pygmy Puff you have there, by the way," she said. "It's obvious you take very good care of it."


SPOILER!!: Jude and Evan

Pippa didn't figure either of these boys for a snake-owner, but she always like to introduce people to new animals, just for the fun of it. She didn't wait for Jude to finish his statement--the minute he indicated a willingness to hold Sylvanus, she held out her arm next to his and allowed the bright orange and red snake slowly unwind itself from her small arm and onto Jude's.

A lot of people thought snakes would feel slimy, but Jude would find this one to be smooth and dry. "There! Careful not to let his skin catch on anything--snakes are really very delicate. He's more scared of you than you are of him. And just let me know when you want me to take him back." Pippa continued standing near the boys, ready to rescue them and the snake at the first sign of discomfort.

Otter This World ♡ Catpurrccino ♡ Slotherin ♡ Pandamonium

That gentle prod to her side as she had passed by both Jude and Evan had earned the cousin a wide grin. She had noticed he was looking at snakes?! How cool was that? Snakes were so beautiful. Yes, hi there Evan! He got a wave in return before all of her attention was on the adorable kneazles.

Lia gave the perky shopkeeper a warm smile, listening to what she had to say about kneazles. Things she already knew, creatures were her thing. One of her things. Her papa used to be the shopkeeper of this very shop when she was little. "I would love one but I already have Sir Frederik and we're only allowed to bring one companion with us to Hogwarts." And it wouldn't be fair to leave her buddy behind now.

Blinks in surprise at Emmeron. WWW was grumpy? This was news to her. She liked the CoMC professor quite a lot. He had always allowed her to help in the barn and sanctuary with the creatures.
Ohh, this was about keeping kneazles in the castle. That she didn't quite agree with either but she kinda understood the reasoning.. a tiny bit. "No, he won't. Kneazles are kept in the barn for the reasons you just mentioned to us." Sadly but it did make some sense.

Chews at her bottom lip, blue eyes once again shifting towards the kneazles and all of the other cats around. "What about a cat similar to a kneazle?" She really wanted to help Emmerson get her kneazle and she wanted one too.. but keeping them in the barn was sad. And she couldn't do that to Sir Frederik.. plus she was a co-parent to Shadow and Flora. Yet.. her own kneazle. Decisions were hard.

A smile tugged at her lips right away. "Thank you, his name is Sir Frederik Puffington. I got him here at this shop when I was about four I think. My papa was shopkeeper during that time."

Pippa would be right: a snake was not the type of pet he had in mind for himself and Merlin knew that he disliked the feel of scaly skin {this was solely based on experience of using reptiles during Potion lessons}. Not to mention he was terrified of being poisoned by one. That was why the boy practically held on to each word the shopkeeper said. She seemed trustable and knowledgeable enough. Jude also wasn’t keen on looking like an idiot and a coward before Evan.

On the part of the Ravenclaw, Jude was surprised and so, so pleased that his name was remembered. Quite flattering actually, given the unfortunate fact that the two hadn’t talked much outside of classes. But was that about to change? At least Evan was willing to take a closer look at the snake with him. “Ye- yes. I’ll hold him.’’ Jude smiled, albeit nervously, to Pippa as he held out his hands. He mentally braced himself for the feel of the dry scaliness of the skin.

Then she shifted his attention back to Evan, finding himself wanting to look into those eyes for long moments. Yes, Jude’s brain still felt like mush and he almost forgot what he had been asked. “Erm. Not really? No. I. Erm.” He could feel his cheeks growing warm and knew he was turning pink. Jude averted his eyes to the snake. “I can’t decide what I want to get. Each summer since I started Hogwarts, my parents would ask what pet I wanted but I just can’t seem to decide.” Jude swung his gaze back to Evan. “W-weird, huh?” He could bet that Evan had it all together, from what he wanted in life to the style of his perfect hair. Jude admired those strands, by the way.


He always found he was so so on remembering people’s names, but after it had taken awhile for him to retrain his brain from thinking of Ivy as ‘alfalfa’ he really made an attempt to be better at it. And he was glad he’d done so, since if Jude had remembered his name and he had not, he would have felt quite bad. Apparently memorizing names was an important thing to add to his down time. Talking to more people he was initially introduced to would make it much easier to do so. Another goal for his upcoming term - talk to people more, including the Hufflepuff before him.

He watched curiously as the snake slithered from the Shopkeeper’s arm onto Jude’s, resisting the urge to reach out and touch it too lest that startle the creature. “How’s it feel?”

Oh? But he wasn’t actually interested in the serpent? Ev was quite surprised to hear that, for some reason having just assumed. But as he explained more, it made more sense to him. He figured the blush was because he was embarrassed to admit indecisiveness, but the Ravenclaw was not judging. Why wouldn’t the decision be difficult for some people? There were a lot of really cool creatures. And sure, there were only a handful of pre-approved pets for school but that didn’t mean someone couldn’t have more for home. And a request for a special pet could be submitted so that made the list even longer too, if approved. “It’s not that weird. There are a lot of options and sometimes it takes falling in love with an animal and knowing they’re meant to be yours before you do it. So it’s not that weird to not know.” Truly. “I’ve known what kind of pet I’ve wanted for years, but I’ve never even asked my parents until this year.” Which that was really something that was weird, given the fact he knew they were likely to say yes since the others had animals. “So your hesitation makes a lot more sense than mine.” He offered another smile.

The wave back from Dahlia had not gone unnoticed either, and Evan gave another small smile in her direction, also eying the kneazles briefly, before turning his attention back to Jude again.

Jude suddenly found himself holding the scaly snake in his hands and arms, the grin he had thrown back at Lia long gone. For a moment, he stood completely frozen in fear for he expected sharp, pointy fangs to pierce his skin at any moment. Not even the bright colours of its skin calmed him. It probably took him one full minute to decide that he was safe and that Pippa had been truthful, even though he could see no reason why she would lie. Unless she was evil like the Neo Alliance leader.

The soon-to-be third year eventually smiled up at Pippa. “Don’t worry. I’ll be gentle with him.” He was good at that, you know, being gentle with animals and people. He was soon considering Evan’s question. “Scaly,’’ came his honest response, his gaze on the snake. A second later they swung towards the Ravenclaw. Instantly, Jude forgot what else he was about to say. Why, why, why did he have to turn to mush in the presence of Evan? Why couldn’t he be himself fully?

Hang on.

Evan was saying something. The Hufflepuff forced himself to stop being silly and focus. For some reason, it was very relieving to him to hear that Evan didn’t think he was weird. It then occurred to him that he cared what the other boy thought of him. He managed a small but grateful smile. “I… I really am gl-glad you understand.’’ Jude was genuinely curious about what Evan revealed about himself. “Why didn’t you? Ask th-them?” Could he stop stammering now? Please? Surely by now Evan would have noticed the stuttering only happened whenever Jude spoke directly to him?

“Oh. Do you want to hold him?’’ The snake he meant. The thirteen year old was becoming quite relaxed by now, enough to let his guard down about any attack from the reptile.

A smile tugged at her lips right away. "Thank you, his name is Sir Frederik Puffington. I got him here at this shop when I was about four I think. My papa was shopkeeper during that time."



The Emmerson blinked at the shopkeeper for a silent moment. The woman had said a lot without ever really addressing the only thing she'd asked of her and the young girl now needed to sift back through all that was said in case she missed it somewhere along the lines.

No. No, she definitely hadn't said it.

The Gryffindor already knew their classification, she knew about the licenses and she knew what made them different from cats. What she needed was advice on how to sneak one into a castle without a man with his head stuck far up somewhere knowing she was doing it. "A half kneazle isn't the same." She said finally, looking from Dahlia who had suggested it, to the woman who was no better. Emmerson was not easily distracted from what she set her mind to.

"With respect, ma'am, I go to Hogwarts." Which should've said it all but she would offer further explanation just to make sure they were all on the same page. We both do. We had a cult invasion and people died. Real people, a whole war. We had people giving us candles that could've been poison and every year it seems there's something else trying to kill us--like spirits that don't like us touching their gold. I don't know if I'll live to be of age. It's a far way off and a lot of time for something to go wrong. I need solutions for now."

It was important to have realism in mind when considering your future. Too many of her classmates and schoolmates had a death wish and they liked to bring others down with them. Waiting was such...a risk, y'know?

Pippa felt a spark of excitement to hear The boy--Evan, his name was, apparently--mention that there was a special pet he'd always wanted. She felt sure she could help with that and was just about to burst into the conversation with a question when Jude--that was the boy holding Sylvanus--offered to let him hold the snake. Pippa had noticed how uncomfortable Jude had been at first and had been waiting to see if she should take Syl back, but relaxed again as he began to seem more comfortable. And now he was offering a turn to his friend--ah, there was no better way to further a special friendship than sharing a snake! Pippa waited with her question for Evan, for she didn't want to interrupt them during such a delicate operation as a snake exchange.

Pippa just stared and listened as the girl went on talking, not sure what to think of the incredible story she was telling. Had all that really been going on at Hogwarts? Pippa had heard something of the events of the war, or course, but there had been Neo-Alliance intrustions everywhere in the Wizarding World. But it seemed going to Hogwarts now was quite a risky adventure! And they had thought Pippa too exciting when she'd been there--huh, Pippa had never caused anything close to this.

But in the midst of her incredulity, Pippa also tried to make sense of what the girl was asking of her. She wanted a Kneazle, the school wouldn't let her have one and she didn't want to leave it at home (which was quite sensible of her), and a half-Kneazle wouldn't do. Pippa got all that, as well as that the girl felt threatened by all these strange events and wanted to do something right now. But what, Pippa couldn't make heads nor tails of. Nor what exactly this girl wanted Pippa to do for her. Pippa spared a glance at the other girl to see if she seemed to understand, or might offer an additional clue as to what they were talking about.

"All right, I understand of course that if you want a Kneazle, a half-Kneazle might not do. And all these events at school--all I can say is, school has gotten a lot more exciting than I remember. And I can tell that you want something, but what exactly you want me to do isn't really clear," she finally answered the girl. Whew! Running a shop was proving to be a bit more complicated than Pippa had been expecting..

Evan was saying something. The Hufflepuff forced himself to stop being silly and focus. For some reason, it was very relieving to him to hear that Evan didn’t think he was weird. It then occurred to him that he cared what the other boy thought of him. He managed a small but grateful smile. “I… I really am gl-glad you understand.’’ Jude was genuinely curious about what Evan revealed about himself. “Why didn’t you? Ask th-them?” Could he stop stammering now? Please? Surely by now Evan would have noticed the stuttering only happened whenever Jude spoke directly to him?

“Oh. Do you want to hold him?’’ The snake he meant. The thirteen year old was becoming quite relaxed by now, enough to let his guard down about any attack from the reptile.


It felt scaly? Evan had to admit, he wasn't quite sure what that exact feeling would be. Would he describe Pascal as scaly? He supposed so, so maybe a serpent would actually feel quite similar to the chameleon at home. Or maybe they felt really different. He still found himself incredibly curious. But he was resisting the urge to touch it, again for the fear of startling it since Jude seemed hesitant about it still.

So he would continue to refrain.

Looking back up to meet the Hufflepuff's gaze when he turned his way, he smiled back before it slipped a bit at the question. He didn't really have a good answer to it. Actually, more so than that he didn't really have any answer. He just... hadn't. Maybe it was because he thought he'd need to help be responsible with the other animals, since the dog couldn't go to school with Noah and Lisa and Maya had been smaller and he'd been worried they'd need help. Or maybe he'd just been afraid to have something of his own he cared about. Wasn't that why his 'crushes' were on people who were completely unattainable? "I... don't really know. I just... didn't for some reason." See? He was the weird one. "But that's why I'm here today." Because he did. He finally asked and now he had his permission.

Which did remind him he still needed to ask the Shopkeeper for help on that front. He was hoping to meet the kittens to see which one liked him and he it prior to adoption.

The offer to hold the snake though got him distracted again. And brown eyes shifted to the slithering creature as he eyed it. Sure he'd been curious what it felt like but was he THAT curious? He supposed he had encouraged Jude... and if he didn't follow through now at the offer himself it would look like he was a coward. For some reason, it mattered to him in this moment that he not appear that way. So after a look towards the shopkeeper to try to confirm if that would be acceptable, which it appeared yes as she was watching to make sure it was done safely, Evan gave a short nod. "Sure."

Remembering how the Shopkeeper had transferred to Jude, Ev put his arm right up against the Hufflepuff's so the snake could slither from one boy to the other.

Dahlia had been trying to be helpful and rather than get discouraged by the fact that Emmerson shot down her suggestion, she smiled. Nothing wrong with knowing exactly what you want and sticking to it. The problem with that was though, that kneazles weren't allowed inside the castle.

Hearing Emmerson talk about all of the things that went on at Hogwarts, Lia visibly cringed. "Could we not talk about that?" she muttered quietly, wrinkling up her nose a little. She had been trying not to focus on any of that whenever possible. Yes, it was all true. It had all happened. Every single moment of it was remembered. But it didn't mean she wanted to recall it right now when she was surround by adorable baby kneazles.

Speaking of which, this thirteen year old's attention went straight back to because she just couldn't resist the cuteness! That glance from the shopkeeper didn't go unnoticed nor did what she happened to say last. "Erm, I think what Emmerson is trying to ask is if there's some way that you can possibly help be able to keep a kneazle inside the castle without it being noticed?" Lia looked from Pippa to Em and then back again as she spoke. "Maybe some sort of potion or food or lotion or something?"

Now if there was something like that, she wasn't sure. Of course there was the invisibility spell but she wasn't going to mention that just yet in case it wouldn't work.

Pippa had noticed how uncomfortable Jude had been at first and had been waiting to see if she should take Syl back, but relaxed again as he began to seem more comfortable. And now he was offering a turn to his friend--ah, there was no better way to further a special friendship than sharing a snake! Pippa waited with her question for Evan, for she didn't want to interrupt them during such a delicate operation as a snake exchange.

If Evan only knew that Jude would never, ever consider him to be a weird one. All Jude knew was that he liked Evan exactly as he was, even though they didn’t really know each other well. It occurred to him then that his father’s earlier prediction was beginning to come to pass: they were on the path knowing each other better. Jude really hoped the trend would continue. Evan’s company was a rather good one, even though Jude usually became so nervous.

He didn’t think much of the Ravenclaw not knowing the reason for the choice made about not asking his parents for a pet before. The important thing was that the question had eventually been asked. “What do you plan on getting?” Jude asked with genuine interest. “Have you got any names picked out as yet?” Yes, he knew that a few potential pet parents picked out names early, much like picking out a name for a baby.

Jude’s face lit up with a warm smile. Naturally, he wouldn’t have thought any less of the boy next to him if he’d refused to hold the snake. “Okay, Sylvanus. I’m going to hand you over to my friend,” he told the brightly coloured reptile in his usual soft voice. “He won’t hurt you.”

Still smiling, he split his attention with Sylvanus and Evan. As he reached an arm closer to Evan’s, he accidentally brushed the other guy’s arm. He immediately pulled back but only out of surprise. Not to mention the warmth of Evan’s arm sent what felt like electricity through his. “S-sorry.” Mentally kicking himself for pulling away like that, Jude extended his arm again and watched as Sylvanus slipped onto Evan’s arm.

Jude tried to focus on the reptile and to pull himself together. Still… all he could think about was that brush that happened just now. He thought that Evan might think he was an idiot. Siiigh. Could he rewind time and redo things a bit differently? This time, he wouldn’t pull away. Sadly, he couldn’t change that and forced it from his thoughts. For now.

“How much is Sylvanus being sold for?” Jude asked Pippa with curiosity. No, he wasn’t interested in getting the reptile {he was quite sure his mother would disapprove}. There was just the suspicion that this scaly boi might be expensive because he was so healthy and colourful.

Lia looked from Pippa to Em and then back again as she spoke. "Maybe some sort of potion or food or lotion or something?"...


Pippa listened to what the other girl was saying and just let it all sink in. Then she took a deep breath. She'd been afraid that this was the sort of thing the first girl was getting at. And this was not at all the sort of thing a new Diagon Alley shopkeeper ought to be getting involved with, or next thing she knew, her shop would be off limits to Hogwarts students.

The thing was...Pippa probably could think of a way to sneak a kneazle into the castle--Merlin knows she had done it with a fair number of other creatures during her short time there. But she didn't want to encourage these girls to go making the same mistakes she had (after all, she hadn't graduated, had she?)

"Ummm..."Pippa started out unimpressively. "Well, you know, there are probably ways you could manage to do it. For a while. But I can almost guarantee you that someone would find out about it, and fairly soon at that. And then you'd get in trouble, but what's worse, your kneazle would be taken away and sent to that barn or to your home or whatever. And the whole experience would be very traumatic for a kneazle, and no one wants that.

So I would have to say, no, and suggest that you try to wait a few more years until you can have one properly, because that won't be long from now, even though it probably seems so. And meantime, you're welcome to visit the kneazles here and get to know them, and I'll tell you what,"
Pippa went on, getting an inspiration, "if you and some kneazle should really hit it off, I could arrange to hold it for you until you're ready to buy it." Was that a good way to run a busines? Pippa didn't know, but she really cared more about making her creatures happy with the right people than getting rich, anyhow.

Pippa had got the impression from bits of overheard conversation that the one boy, Evan, was interested in a pet. Another pet than a snake. And here she was letting him get distracted--she'd have to fix that soon.

But--oh, wait, Jude, the one who was doing such a lovely job holding Sylvanus, was offering to let Evan hold him. Pippa couldn't interrupt this yet, not after she caught the boy's reaction to brushing arms with the other. Ah, young romance! Pippa would say it again, there was no better way to get better acquainted with someone than by sharing a snake!

Interrupted by this reverie by Jude's question, Pippa considered a minute and replied, "Well, corn snakes are one of the cheaper varieties--they're a good starter snake. Syl goes for four Galleons. She continued to watch both boys approvingly--she liked how they both referred to Sylvanus by his name, and how they were being calm and gentle with him. Of course, Slyvanus was a very calm and unexcitable snake in general; that's why Pippa had picked him.

While Evan knew nothing of predictions, he certainly would have agreed Jude’s company was good. And in the back of his mind, the idea that he might actually be able to make a male friend was exciting. Not that there was anything wrong with his female friends, it was just he couldn’t help but wonder why it seemed he only got along with females so far.


He was thankful there was no mention of it being odd that he didn’t know or hadn’t asked previously. Because he was certainly aware it had been an odd thing, but it was all in the past now anyways so it didn’t matter too much. Hearing Jude ask what he wanted, he smiled and nodded over towards where the cats and kittens were housed. “A kitten. I love cats.” Sure, it was one of the more generic of the pets people got, but that wasn’t something that Ev factored or cared about. He’d always wanted a cat of his own. At the question of a name, he flushed a bit red wondering if it was odd he already knew what he would like to call a kitty. “Well, it depends on which I mesh well with,” if any, “but if it’s a girl I was thinking I’d call her Padme. Pads, for short.” Yes, like Queen Amidala. Star Wars was a thing in the Nam household. Mainly in the form of light saber battles, but he did enjoy the movies well enough.

He eyed Jude curiously as he introduced him to the snake as ‘friend’, did Jude already consider him as such? The concept of friends could still be confusing to Evan, who looked at things far too analytically. How did someone become a ‘friend’? It was far too complicated of a thought process for him to get into now, especially with a snake being passed to him, so he refocused and regrouped on Sylvanus.

Once their arms touched, the Ravenclaw didn’t have much time to consider or feel anything outside of the surprise at the Hufflepuff pulling back so quickly. He briefly worried as well on if it had startled the snake, but it seemed so far so good still, so he kept his arm still as Jude brought his back for Sylvanus to make his transfer. “Not a problem.” He wondered why he was apologizing. Had word got out Evan didn’t really like physical contact? That would have been a weird thing to circulate.

But the snake was on him, and now he was thoroughly distracted in observing the creature. Sylvanus didn’t feel too differently from Pascal, but also not quite the same. It was an odd feeling, and he wasn’t really sure what to describe it as if someone had tried to ask him like he asked Jude. Scaly certainly seemed fair. Ev remained still so that Sylvanus could get comfortable on him, not wanting to upset him or accidentally hurt him by any type of sudden movements. So far so good though. And he actually wasn’t nearly as uncomfortable as he would have thought he’d be, which gave him time to also observe how pretty the coloring of the snake was. “He seems really well-tempered.” Calm. Evan quite liked it.

Though he was not to be swayed from a kitten. But maybe a snake letter when he wouldn’t be gone so long out of the year.

Little did Jude know that he was among the first of Evan’s male friends. It would have been rather flattering to him had he known this. As it was, his gaze lingered a little longer than necessary on Evan’s smile {it was a very nice one, fyi} then reluctantly followed the nod. It was the kittens. “I think you’ve made a great choice,” Jude responded honestly and now found himself looking at a red-faced Evan. He was somewhat uncertain as to why this was the case because as far as he could tell, there wasn’t anything for the other boy to be embarrassed about. Now, Jude knew nothing about Star Wars so naturally he did not pick up the reference. “I approve,’’ he said before he could stop himself. Because really… he didn’t have a right on anything Evan did in life, did he? “Besides, Pads is one of those cool nicknames. Would you mind if I hung around a bit while you choose one of the cats?” Since he had some more time to kill but mostly because he wasn’t keen on leaving Evan’s company.

The Hufflepuff completely missed the looks he was receiving from the Ravenclaw and that was only because his attention was on Sylvanus. But yes… he did consider Evan a friend. Unfortunately they weren't close but they were off to a good start. Except for the part where he so, so, so wished he hadn’t pulled away like that from Evan. Jude said nothing in reply, even though it wasn’t knowledge to him that Evan hated physical contact.

Without realising it, Jude tilted his head just a hint as he studied Evan with Sylvanus. There was one particular thing that came immediately to mind as he watched them and he felt the need to voice his thoughts. “He looks to be very comfortable with you and vice versa. It’s like… you’re a natural with him.” Further, Jude thought this was a rather picturesque moment but said nothing aloud about that.

Had Pippa bonded over a snake with any love of hers? Jude would have been interested to know. Anyway, he was just as interested in the price of snakes. In terms of this topic, he didn't have much knowledge. “I see. I hadn’t known that.’’ The boy reached out to stroke the snake a bit. “I don’t think snakes are my type but he’s so beautiful.” The colours are what attracted him.

At the question of a name, he flushed a bit red wondering if it was odd he already knew what he would like to call a kitty. “Well, it depends on which I mesh well with,” if any, “but if it’s a girl I was thinking I’d call her Padme. Pads, for short.” Yes, like Queen Amidala. Star Wars was a thing in the Nam household. Mainly in the form of light saber battles, but he did enjoy the movies well enough....
But the snake was on him, and now he was thoroughly distracted in observing the creature. Sylvanus didn’t feel too differently from Pascal, but also not quite the same. It was an odd feeling, and he wasn’t really sure what to describe it as if someone had tried to ask him like he asked Jude. Scaly certainly seemed fair. Ev remained still so that Sylvanus could get comfortable on him, not wanting to upset him or accidentally hurt him by any type of sudden movements. So far so good though. And he actually wasn’t nearly as uncomfortable as he would have thought he’d be, which gave him time to also observe how pretty the coloring of the snake was. “He seems really well-tempered.” Calm. Evan quite liked it....

"Yes, corn snakes make pretty easy pets as snakes go, as I said, and Syl is particularly calm, but I can tell he likes you. But snakes aren't for everybody, and that's okay.

Little did Jude know that he was among the first of Evan’s male friends. It would have been rather flattering to him had he known this. As it was, his gaze lingered a little longer than necessary on Evan’s smile {it was a very nice one, fyi} then reluctantly followed the nod. It was the kittens. “I think you’ve made a great choice,” Jude responded honestly and now found himself looking at a red-faced Evan. He was somewhat uncertain as to why this was the case because as far as he could tell, there wasn’t anything for the other boy to be embarrassed about. Now, Jude knew nothing about Star Wars so naturally he did not pick up the reference. “I approve,’’ he said before he could stop himself. Because really… he didn’t have a right on anything Evan did in life, did he? “Besides, Pads is one of those cool nicknames. Would you mind if I hung around a bit while you choose one of the cats?” Since he had some more time to kill but mostly because he wasn’t keen on leaving Evan’s company.

The Hufflepuff completely missed the looks he was receiving from the Ravenclaw and that was only because his attention was on Sylvanus. But yes… he did consider Evan a friend. Unfortunately they weren't close but they were off to a good start. Except for the part where he so, so, so wished he hadn’t pulled away like that from Evan. Jude said nothing in reply, even though it wasn’t knowledge to him that Evan hated physical contact.

Without realising it, Jude tilted his head just a hint as he studied Evan with Sylvanus. There was one particular thing that came immediately to mind as he watched them and he felt the need to voice his thoughts. “He looks to be very comfortable with you and vice versa. It’s like… you’re a natural with him.” Further, Jude thought this was a rather picturesque moment but said nothing aloud about that.

Just follow me over here."

She turned and walked over to another are of the shop which was covered with a series of boxes and towers of various heights, all carpeted with some sort of soft material and connected to each other with bridges and ramps. On top of a few stately posts sat luxuriant pots of what seemed to be catnip, and a large, sleepy cat lounged beneath one, staring out at them from between the leaves that hung down around him. Cats and kittens were climbing up and down the towers, running between them along the bridges, napping inside the boxes or atop platforms, and generally just happily doing what cats do. "Let's see if you can find someone compatible, shall we?" Pippa called over her shoulder to Evan.


"I think so too." It had been something he'd wanted for awhile, and while he did say kitten he wasn't opposed to an adult cat if that's who connected with him. But he was hoping for a kitten merely so he could have more time with the creature, and good bonding time right in the beginning stages. Getting a kitten closer towards time to go back to school too meant he'd get time to bond with kitty before it chose his Appa, or someone else in the household as the main human. Though usually the animals that gravitated to Appa were dogs - he was a lot of energy and could be satisfied playing fetch for hours without growing tired. He smiled at Jude's 'I approve' statement, not thinking it was odd at all - merely taking it as a compliment. "I thought it was a good one. But that's if I bond well with a girl. I don't know what I would call a boy cat." The name would probably come to him when he met him. He was surprised by the request to hang out, but had no hesitation in giving an answer. "Sure, if you want to. I don't mind at all."

He could feel himself turn red again at Jude's next words, having been surprised by them but pleased nonetheless. He'd just been admired Sylvanus and watching the way he almost lazily moved when Jude had spoken, and brown eyes turned to the Hufflepuff. "Oh. Well.. thank you. I really like creatures and spending time with them." So he was glad that it seemed natural to do so and that the snake was comfortable with him. "If I could take him to school I might want to be a snake person but... I don't know how my Eomma would like it, and they'd have to watch him all year long." Because he didn't have permission yet. But honestly, he did like the snake and he certainly might return after graduation.

You know, 4 years still down the line.

And now it was time to give Sylvanus back. Evan held perfectly still while he moved himself from his arm back to the Shopkeepers, listening as she also gave them more info about corn snakes during the process. "Are snakes a harder creature to take care of?" She said corn snakes and Sylvanus in particular was the easiest to take care of in terms of snakes, but what about the reptile as a whole? "Thank you for letting us meet him." Even though it was obvious they hadn't been either ready to purchase him. It was still nice to have hung out with the serpent.

But now... it was time. The thing he'd been waiting for all summer. And while Evan Nam was not the most easily excitable of individuals, there was almost a spring to his step as he began to follow the Shopkeeper over towards where the cats and kittens were currently being housed. Once they reached the habitat for the felines, he was almost overwhelmed at first by how many there were! But also hopeful, because out of so many there had to be at least one he bonded with, right? One he could bond with, and who wasn't too terrible with other cats which... didn't seem like it'd be an issue since most of them were together. But he figured he should ask anyways because he wanted to make sure that all the creatures in the house were going to be at least okay with the newest addition. He didn't want to stress any of them out. "Do you know if any of the cats and kittens are okay around dogs?" They wouldn't have to spend TOO much time with the family Australian shepherd, but there was at least summer times. "And chameleons?" A weirder ask, and again... only during summers since kitty and Pascal could easily be separated during the school term.

Jude didn’t know how or why but he had the suspicion that Evan would get exactly what he wanted - a female kitten. Just call it a good hunch; a good feeling. He was secretly delighted that his request to stick around was so quickly positively received; without a second thought it seemed. “You’ll figure i-it out. And thanks. I- I just want to see if a-a kitten might be good for me too.” Which was only half of his true reason for wanting to stay behind, of course.

Bit by bit, this Hufflepuff was learning about the Ravenclaw. With each piece of information that came to light, he tucked it away into his brain, filing it for future use. So… Evan liked spending time with creatures. Good to know. Also, did Evan know that that shade of red suit him? Jude couldn’t help but stare for a short while until he caught himself. “It sh- shows. Hanging out in the Hogwarts sanctuary must be something you like d-doing.” He assumed Eomma meant ‘mother’ but Jude didn’t have an inkling that he was thinking along the same line when it came to the snake. “Well, there’s always the ti-time after you graduate. Then again… I suppose it depends on what you’re going to be doing after Hogwarts and h-how much of your time it occupies.”

Jude gave Sylvanus one last pet. If the snake was still here when he next visited, he’d be sure to give it more pets. The boy hoped that Sylvanus would find a loving home long before then though. He watched Evan {quite expertly in his opinion} pass Sylvanus back to the shopkeeper. Yes, it was true - Evan was a marvel with creatures and Jude couldn’t help but admire that.

“Yes, thank you,’’ Jude echoed softly, smiling at the woman gratefully. She was being so kind and patient with him and Evan that he couldn’t help but be grateful. “I really like Sylvanus and I hope he finds a good home soon.” Jude was going to channel all his good vibes to this corn snake, okay? “Bye, Syl,’’ he whispered as the shopkeeper led Evan over to the kittens.

He hurried to keep up with the other two, noting that Evan seemed… springier? about looking at the furry babies. Jude figured this was the excitement of finally being able to choose the pet he wanted. He was also beginning to guess that the Ravenclaw held a super soft spot for creatures. The realisation just made him admire Evan even more. Since Evan was about to do something important, Jude hung back a little, observing the kittens, Pippa and Evan. Which of the babies would be chosen? And those questions? Jude didn’t find them weird. There were probably dogs and chameleons in the Nam household.

Back in his habitat, Sylvanus slowly coiled up a smooth branch and paused at the top to watch the boys who had been playing with him as they walked away. He flicked his tongue in and out contentedly; they had been nice boys.

Meanwhile, Pippa waited at the entrance to 'Catlandia', as she liked to call it, until both boys caught up with her. She had been pleased with the way they both handled Sylvanus, and was sure either of them could be trusted to care for a kitten.

"Oh, snakes are fairly easy to take care of, and they can be comforting and affectionate pets," she responded to one of Evan's questions. "But there are a few things--don't carry them in anything with sharp edges as it can hurt them. And they need an environment that can be kept warm, since they're cold-blooded. And then there's the feeding." Pippa paused, not sure how the boy would take this next comment. "You have to be up to feeding them a live or frozen mouse about twice a week. Some people are squeamish about that."

But her ears pricked up at that last question. Dogs were one thing, but...did he say a chameleon? This was both intriguing and worrying.

"Oh, I'd say many, if not most of our cats and kittens do just fine around dogs--they all get used to getting alone with each other here in the shop." Because Pippa pretty much saw to it that they did, unless they had been traumatized in a previous home, but those animals weren't offered as pets until Pippa was quite sure they were ready for the outside world.

"But--did you say a chameleon? Is this part of your household, a pet? That could be a problem. Chameleons don't usually like being around other animals, even other chameleons, and larger animals can scare them. And cats--well, cats are cats, and they will be fascinated by something like a chameleon, wanting to play and tease him, and that can be dangerous. Even if you keep the chameleon in a cage, cats have been known to break into such a cage and kill the chameleon.

Of course, there are spells that can help with that. But if it were me, I don't think I'd own both a cat and a chameleon unless I could keep them in separate rooms."
Pippa looked with concern at Evan to see how he'd take this information.

Oh? Jude was interested in a kitten as well? "Maybe we'll end up with a couple from the same litter." If he decided that's even what he actually wanted. Jude could also always decide to be interested in a Toad, or an Owl or one of the other creatures offered. Either way, Evan didn't mind the company. The more he spent around other people, the more he realized he almost enjoyed being social. And Jude was a calmer presence, which was far easier for him to enjoy than a lot of high strung personalities.

Evan certainly would not have known this red was a good shade, and probably wouldn't have agreed. Merely because he hated flushing and the heat in his face. It was embarrassing, which generally just made him even redder and thus went the cycle. He focused again on the conversation as the creature sanctuary was mentioned, nodding his head. "Yes, a lot. End of last term I started studying there a lot. Or drawing the creatures." Poorly, but there was still attempts being made. He'd yet to decide if that was something he'd still pursue for fun. If he was going to, this was probably the best time since next term would be very busy with OWL prep all year. Huh.. After Hogwarts. It felt so far away, and yet at the same time also seemed to be approaching faster than he was prepared for. Evan had some ideas of what he'd like to study, but nothing decided. One would certainly take a good deal of his time with all the studying he would need to do. "That's true. Do you already know what you'll want to pursue after school?" There were a lot of people who just knew, even if they changed their minds.

Feeling himself sucked into the rabbit hole of careers and lists that was his mind, Evan refocused his attention back at the task at hand. Excited again, and running his eyes over the kittens and cats congregated. They were all so cute. And he certainly hoped they were all going to find good homes and people to love and care for them soon, really just as he wished for all of the creatures in the Menagerie. But he could only adopt one, and he just wanted to make sure all creatures involved were happy and healthy and safe.

But before he focused on that, he turned his eyes again towards Sylvanus' habitat while listening to the explanation on how they needed to be cared for. "So not good for homes with children?" Not because of fear of the snakes actions like most people probably assumed, but kids (and by this he was thinking younger than himself) were clumsy and dropped things and what if the snake had gotten hurt because of that? Although he supposed not ALL kids were probably klutz's but... still. The mouse thing though.... "That does sound... difficult." He might have been able to do frozen mice but... he still would have been sad for those creatures as well. So maybe not a snake for him in the future.

Back to Catlandia, which he quite would have liked the name of, he listened more to the Shopkeeper speak. Firstly encouraged by the fact they were all accustomed to dogs, which was good to know so he wouldn't have to worry about that. But at the information regarding a Chameleon, there was a visible deflation in the Ravenclaw. Was it... not a good idea for him to do this then? The last thing he'd want to do was risk Pascal, both for concern for the chameleon and the sake of his youngest sister. He couldn't imagine Lisa's reaction if something happened to her pet. "Well... my sister does have a pet chameleon. He stays in her room with her most of the time so they are separate rooms, and there is school too where they wouldn't be near each other..." But... was it still to risky? Jinx was old and disinterested in playing at all. But a kitten would be much more feisty and what if it DID get into Liss' room? Besides, spells were only helpful if someone was around to do magic to use them. He couldn't always rely on a cousin or his older brother, since his parents had no magic and he was underage. "Do you think then... it's better to hold off?" Like until graduation. Because he certainly wasn't going to wish for Pascal's demise.

And he was asking genuine opinion. Obviously the Shopkeeper cared about the animals and would encourage the best decision. And whether he liked her answer and opinion or not, he was still going to respect it because it was for all the creature's safety.

Though he still would have been incredibly disappointed.

But it seemed going to Hogwarts now was quite a risky adventure! And they had thought Pippa too exciting when she'd been there--huh, Pippa had never caused anything close to this.

But in the midst of her incredulity, Pippa also tried to make sense of what the girl was asking of her. She wanted a Kneazle, the school wouldn't let her have one and she didn't want to leave it at home (which was quite sensible of her), and a half-Kneazle wouldn't do. Pippa got all that, as well as that the girl felt threatened by all these strange events and wanted to do something right now. But what, Pippa couldn't make heads nor tails of. Nor what exactly this girl wanted Pippa to do for her. Pippa spared a glance at the other girl to see if she seemed to understand, or might offer an additional clue as to what they were talking about.

"All right, I understand of course that if you want a Kneazle, a half-Kneazle might not do. And all these events at school--all I can say is, school has gotten a lot more exciting than I remember. And I can tell that you want something, but what exactly you want me to do isn't really clear," she finally answered the girl. Whew! Running a shop was proving to be a bit more complicated than Pippa had been expecting..

Hearing Emmerson talk about all of the things that went on at Hogwarts, Lia visibly cringed. "Could we not talk about that?" she muttered quietly, wrinkling up her nose a little. She had been trying not to focus on any of that whenever possible. Yes, it was all true. It had all happened. Every single moment of it was remembered. But it didn't mean she wanted to recall it right now when she was surround by adorable baby kneazles.

Speaking of which, this thirteen year old's attention went straight back to because she just couldn't resist the cuteness! That glance from the shopkeeper didn't go unnoticed nor did what she happened to say last. "Erm, I think what Emmerson is trying to ask is if there's some way that you can possibly help be able to keep a kneazle inside the castle without it being noticed?" Lia looked from Pippa to Em and then back again as she spoke. "Maybe some sort of potion or food or lotion or something?"

Now if there was something like that, she wasn't sure. Of course there was the invisibility spell but she wasn't going to mention that just yet in case it wouldn't work.


She...didn't know how to be any clearer, truly she didn't. The idea was pretty clear in her head and often, Emmerson felt that was enough. Of course, situations like these reminded her she actually needed to spell things out sometimes just to make sure everyone was on the same page. Thankfully, Dahlia knew exactly what she was asking for, leaving the rising 4th Year with nothing to do but nod along.

"Right. There must be something we can do. I know there's spells but I don't wanna lose a kneazle kitten and I don't want anyone to step on it by accident because then I'd have to hex them and I've already got enough things that'll land me in detention without that added on." It was a balance that needed to be struck and an interesting turn of events.

In truth, Emmerson didn't want a kneazle. Not really, anyway, but she did like the idea of getting something she wasn't allowed to have and getting something by old grouchy Williamson.

"Maybe there's a potion you could give to our professor, instead. Nothing harmful, just something to make him...uh....more compliant." Then she could just waltz in with the kneazle and wouldn't have to worry about getting caught.

This was a good plan.

Meanwhile, Pippa waited at the entrance to 'Catlandia', as she liked to call it, until both boys caught up with her. She had been pleased with the way they both handled Sylvanus, and was sure either of them could be trusted to care for a kitten.

"Oh, snakes are fairly easy to take care of, and they can be comforting and affectionate pets," she responded to one of Evan's questions. "But there are a few things--don't carry them in anything with sharp edges as it can hurt them. And they need an environment that can be kept warm, since they're cold-blooded. And then there's the feeding." Pippa paused, not sure how the boy would take this next comment. "You have to be up to feeding them a live or frozen mouse about twice a week. Some people are squeamish about that."

But her ears pricked up at that last question. Dogs were one thing, but...did he say a chameleon? This was both intriguing and worrying.

"Oh, I'd say many, if not most of our cats and kittens do just fine around dogs--they all get used to getting alone with each other here in the shop." Because Pippa pretty much saw to it that they did, unless they had been traumatized in a previous home, but those animals weren't offered as pets until Pippa was quite sure they were ready for the outside world.

"But--did you say a chameleon? Is this part of your household, a pet? That could be a problem. Chameleons don't usually like being around other animals, even other chameleons, and larger animals can scare them. And cats--well, cats are cats, and they will be fascinated by something like a chameleon, wanting to play and tease him, and that can be dangerous. Even if you keep the chameleon in a cage, cats have been known to break into such a cage and kill the chameleon.

Of course, there are spells that can help with that. But if it were me, I don't think I'd own both a cat and a chameleon unless I could keep them in separate rooms."
Pippa looked with concern at Evan to see how he'd take this information.

Jude could also always decide to be interested in a Toad, or an Owl or one of the other creatures offered. Either way, Evan didn't mind the company. The more he spent around other people, the more he realized he almost enjoyed being social. And Jude was a calmer presence, which was far easier for him to enjoy than a lot of high strung personalities.

Evan certainly would not have known this red was a good shade, and probably wouldn't have agreed. Merely because he hated flushing and the heat in his face. It was embarrassing, which generally just made him even redder and thus went the cycle. He focused again on the conversation as the creature sanctuary was mentioned, nodding his head. "Yes, a lot. End of last term I started studying there a lot. Or drawing the creatures." Poorly, but there was still attempts being made. He'd yet to decide if that was something he'd still pursue for fun. If he was going to, this was probably the best time since next term would be very busy with OWL prep all year. Huh.. After Hogwarts. It felt so far away, and yet at the same time also seemed to be approaching faster than he was prepared for. Evan had some ideas of what he'd like to study, but nothing decided. One would certainly take a good deal of his time with all the studying he would need to do. "That's true. Do you already know what you'll want to pursue after school?" There were a lot of people who just knew, even if they changed their minds.

Feeling himself sucked into the rabbit hole of careers and lists that was his mind, Evan refocused his attention back at the task at hand. Excited again, and running his eyes over the kittens and cats congregated. They were all so cute. And he certainly hoped they were all going to find good homes and people to love and care for them soon, really just as he wished for all of the creatures in the Menagerie. But he could only adopt one, and he just wanted to make sure all creatures involved were happy and healthy and safe.

But before he focused on that, he turned his eyes again towards Sylvanus' habitat while listening to the explanation on how they needed to be cared for. "So not good for homes with children?" Not because of fear of the snakes actions like most people probably assumed, but kids (and by this he was thinking younger than himself) were clumsy and dropped things and what if the snake had gotten hurt because of that? Although he supposed not ALL kids were probably klutz's but... still. The mouse thing though.... "That does sound... difficult." He might have been able to do frozen mice but... he still would have been sad for those creatures as well. So maybe not a snake for him in the future.

Back to Catlandia, which he quite would have liked the name of, he listened more to the Shopkeeper speak. Firstly encouraged by the fact they were all accustomed to dogs, which was good to know so he wouldn't have to worry about that. But at the information regarding a Chameleon, there was a visible deflation in the Ravenclaw. Was it... not a good idea for him to do this then? The last thing he'd want to do was risk Pascal, both for concern for the chameleon and the sake of his youngest sister. He couldn't imagine Lisa's reaction if something happened to her pet. "Well... my sister does have a pet chameleon. He stays in her room with her most of the time so they are separate rooms, and there is school too where they wouldn't be near each other..." But... was it still to risky? Jinx was old and disinterested in playing at all. But a kitten would be much more feisty and what if it DID get into Liss' room? Besides, spells were only helpful if someone was around to do magic to use them. He couldn't always rely on a cousin or his older brother, since his parents had no magic and he was underage. "Do you think then... it's better to hold off?" Like until graduation. Because he certainly wasn't going to wish for Pascal's demise.

And he was asking genuine opinion. Obviously the Shopkeeper cared about the animals and would encourage the best decision. And whether he liked her answer and opinion or not, he was still going to respect it because it was for all the creature's safety.

Though he still would have been incredibly disappointed.


Jude actually liked the thought of him and Evan adopting a kitten from the same litter. He hoped that seeing the little fluffballs would awake something inside of him and urge him to get one. If not… well, there would be another time, right? Huh? Jude had been right about the sanctuary thing? It had been a lucky guess. “I didn’t know you drew too.” Was Evan a guy of many talents or what? As for what he wanted to do after Hogwarts? Jude so far was uncertain but was in no rush to figure it out. Like choosing a pet, he supposed that the path to a career would come naturally to him. But there was one thing that he was rather interested in right now. “Not really? But I’m interested in make-up artistry.” He was trusting Evan to not laugh by telling him this. “I don’t k-know if you noticed that I helped with makeup f-for the play last term.” Jude doubted it; it wasn’t as though Evan was crushing on him.

As the shopkeeper continued her talk of snakes, the Hufflepuff could not help but take all the information in. Maybe someday it would all come in handy during a CoMC lesson. He turned to look back at the curled up snake. Mice… live ones in particular, were something Jude was sure he’d have a difficult time feeding a snake; he’d spend too much of his time feeling sorry for any mice that were about to become snake lunch.

Jude was quite content to continue saying silent and simply observing - observing the cats and Evan. Those covert glances he was shooting at the other boy was the reason he picked up on the obvious disappointment. Jude too couldn’t help but feel the same for he’d been hoping that Evan would get the pet he wanted. The third year pondered Evan’s question in his mind. What would he do if Reagan or Keighley had a pet chameleon and he wanted a cat?

He cleared his throat after a moment. “If it means an-anything… er, I think you should go for it. Someone’s pet is always going to be a danger to another but Evan, you have an a-advantage. If you get a kitten, that means you get more time to sh-show it that the chameleon is a friend, as opposed to in-introducing it to a full grown cat w-whose instincts are to a-attack a chameleon.”

Pippa nodded, taking in Evan's questions and Jude's comments. "Well, of course it depends on the personality of the kitten. I've known some households where they had cats and and a chameleon and they just ignored each other. And it's good to take some time to train the cat or other animals not to bother the chameleon--you know, like you'd discourage them from doing anything. That doesn't mean they won't try anything when you're not looking, but they're less likely to if they know they'll get in trouble.

But the best way, as I said, is to keep the chameleon in a room away from the cat. And also have a good, sturdy, secure cage--not just wire, but something made of wood or glass. And try to have the air ventilation somewhere other than a wire top, because cats will jump onto that. Or you can put a dome or a light fixture on top to block the cat getting up there. And keep the chameleon cage up high.

And--how old is your sister, anyway? Is she old enough to be responsible for keeping her door closed? And of course, if you're both at Hogwarts, you'd be separated anyway, if you're in different Houses.

It's not like I'm saying, absolutely don't get a kitten if you have a chameleon in the household, but it wouldn't be fair not to be straight with you about possible complications. I don't want to make this decision for you, only you know the situation at your house."


Pippa hoped she had explained everything right, because she was really hoping to find at least one of these boys a pet today, they both seemed like they'd be good with creatures.

Hmm, yes, Pippa's eyes narrowed every so slightly, because all this was sounding very fishy. She suspected this girl was just looking for a way to defy authority, rather than truly wanting a pet today. Pippa had been on the other side of enough pranks in her time to spot one when she heard it.

"Yes, well, potions aren't exactly my specialty, so I don't think we'll be doing that. I suggest you either wait a few years, or content yourself with another pet that is allowed at Hogwarts." Pippa was not about to let one of her creatures get involved in any trouble.
