Adopting A Niffler
A Personal Log
On Thursday, this adorable little guy followed me home. Well, actually, his previous owner gave him to me. It turns out, he didn’t even know what he was. He was all alone and so cute, and yes, I’ll admit it, I felt sorry for him, so I let him in. It appears that this was my first big mistake.
The moment I got him through the door, he started rummaging. He didn’t even stop to check that the door was closed, or whether anyone was watching him. I have provisionally named him George (after one half of the wickedly inventive Weasley twins).
He seems completely unfazed by the dogs, and if I’m honest, I don’t think I’d fancy my chorkie’s chances, were she to get between George and anything shiny. He’s trashed my art room, and is currently sitting on my desk with a growing collection of randomly chosen, sparkly objects.
I never thought adopting a niffler would be an easy task, having read all of the available literature on the subject, but I must admit that I hadn’t expected it to be quite so difficult.
I’ll keep you updated as I learn more about him. Expect plenty of photos. 🙂
