Top Ten Tuesdays: Animals from Books

Since I’m reading Harry Potter currently as I look over the future prompts, this one seemed especially apt and fun, definitely going to have a few from the HP world here. Unlike Hagrid, however, I prefer the cute or beautiful ones, no dragons for me!

  1. Pygmy puff (soft purple)
  2. Tiny owl like Pigwidgeon
  3. Unicorn (white with a silver horn)
  4. Pegasus (jet black)
  5. Phoenix (the Harry Potter version, not sure what the traditional myth version is like!)
  6. Cat like Crookshanks
  7. Another cat
  8. Another cat
  9. Another cat (I’m one of those born cat people, sorry, not sorry)
  10. Ok, probably a dog, maybe. Lots of loyal dog companions in books like in the Sutcliff novels.

Quick edit to add . . . I scheduled this post maybe a month before putting a deposit down on a puppy . . . whose name is Bjorn from a Rosemary Sutcliff book!

    1. Thanks, I tend to go for the cute and cuddly, I’m unfortunately a bit more with Draco on this one, lol, I mean except the execution part.

    1. I think you get to briefly see a pygmy puff on Ginny’s in the train when she’s talking to Dean and Harry passes by, and I think he asks her to sit with him (R and H are with prefects). But they hardly get the attention they deserve . . . esp when Fred and George bred them as new breed themselves! Fred and George don’t get enough time.

      And Pigwigeon gets nothing. I adored him, he was just one of those details (like Peeves such an important loss) that just added so much to the stories.
