Who: Oriel Summerby and Natalie Midgen. When: September 11th. 3pm. Where: Magical Menagerie. What: Kitten shopping! Rating: Low. Also, C for Cute. Status: Closed/Incomplete.
Oriel was filled with excited anticipation at the thought of getting a kitten. He loved cats. Of course, he loved all animals, big and small, domestic and wild. He marvelled at all of the other living creatures that shared the Earth with Muggles and Wizards. And someday, he would likely have a farm, full of animals.
But for now he just had his flat. With two budgies, a rat, and a pygmy puff (well and an owl, but he spent most of his time outside as he prefered). And soon, a kitten as well!
He pulled on a gray and blue knit sweater and roped a long, thin scarf around his neck before he set out, taking his wand and apparating to Memorial Park, which was usually the least busy place in the allies, and thus, the place he was least likely to land on someone. From there, he walked through Memorial Alley, and down through Diagon Alley as well as he made his way towards the pet store.
When he reached Magical Menagerie, he peeked in the windows, seeing shapes of birds and other things, but did not let himself go in. He knew without a wise and guiding presence next to him, he would give into temptation and come out with not just a kitten, but several kittens, and mice, and a puppy and birds and fish and more things than he could carry.
