I have had four pets total at Hogwarts, two cats and two owls. At some point my first cat, Mr. Mistoffelees, ran into trouble in the greenhouse. He ate something he shouldn't have and got very sick. It turned him into a rabid sort of beast, and before I knew it, the cat I had had for nearly four years here ran off into the Forbidden Forest. My first owl, Booker, was a beautiful owl. He would deliver parcels for me all the time from home and back. We would have lovely conversations. This past summer, I was delivering a message to a friend, and at some point, he must have gotten lost because I never saw him again. However, he loved me telling him all of these stories from my books that I read to him, so I like to think he went off on an adventure of his own.
I acquired two new pets over this summer, another cat and another owl. I'm still getting to know them, but I have noticed that they are both very talkative. Matroskin, my dark and light grey striped cat, never seems to stay quiet for long. Actually, she tends to go over to my owl HootHoot and talk to her nonstop. Of course HootHoot only ever hoots, and Matroskin can only meow although her meows sound like human speak at times. I have to double check to make sure she really isn't speaking human. It does make it hard to study, so sometimes I have to send them away, HootHoot back to the Owlery and Matroskin to the common room to gaze out the window. She's always finding something out there that gets her attention.
