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!
- Pygmy puff (soft purple)
- Tiny owl like Pigwidgeon
- Unicorn (white with a silver horn)
- Pegasus (jet black)
- Phoenix (the Harry Potter version, not sure what the traditional myth version is like!)
- Cat like Crookshanks
- Another cat
- Another cat
- Another cat (I’m one of those born cat people, sorry, not sorry)
- 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!
Pygmy puffs! This is a fun list. I also always really loved hippogriffs.
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.
Unicorns are amazing.

A tiny owl would be amazing!
They would, I just love seeing tiny owls on Pinterest.
The miniature Pigwigeon owls are so cute, and the pygmy puffs, wish they’d put them in the films, that was a marketing opportunity missed!
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.
