Cat sniffed at Oriel's hand, then, after some hesitation, learned into his hand and continued purring. When Tweak approached, Cat jumped out of Eddie's grasp and went over to investigate the strange, tiny new creature. Cat was much larger than Tweak, being a few years old already, but Eddie cautioned her to be nice to the kitten.
"I wouldn't worry about her. She's a sweetheart. She just wants my attention twenty-four hours of the day, unless, of course, she is giving her attention to something else." He noticed Oriel doing something with his hands and watched curiously. "Ah--what is that, exactly, if you don't mind?" Once a Ravenclaw, always a Ravenclaw, and Eddie was intrigued by something he did not know about.
