“‘If she’d just get rid of that cat I’d speak to her again!’ Ron said angrily. ‘But she’s still sticking up for it! It’s a maniac and she won’t hear a word against it!’ ‘Ah, well, people can be a bit stupid abou’ their pets,’ said Hagrid wisely. Behind him, Buckbeak spat a few ferret bones onto Hagrid’s pillow.” – JK Rowling, ‘Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban’
Wasn’t sure what to come up with for day three of this challenge, but had a browse through lots of my favourite quotes and passages from books and found myself dipping back in to the wonderful world of Harry Potter – one I love so much. This little extract is full of JK Rowling’s trademark humour and sentiment – through friends talking cosily in Hagrid’s little home, with warmth and understanding, it casts a light on Hagrid’s, Ron’s and Hermione’s unwavering devotion to their animals (a sometimes interesting mix!) through thick and thin. It’s a lovely tribute to the love of pets – and coming from the book this blog’s name is borrowed from, seemed very fitting. ♥️
Thanks again Ava for nominating, I’ve had good fun taking part!
Have a lovely day all. Xx
