A very crowded pet store in Diagon Alley, noisy with the sounds of all the animals, where Hermione bought Crookshanks. The proprietor is a witch who wears heavy black spectacles. She offers advice and sells things like rat tonic. Other creatures for sale included:

Crookshanks

  • enormous purple toads
  • gigantic tortoise with jewel-encrusted shell (probably a Fire-Crab)
  • poisonous orange snails (Streelers?)
  • a fat white rabbit that changed into a top hat and back
  • cats of every color
  • noisy cage of ravens
  • custard-colored furballs (probably Puffskeins)
  • sleek, black rats, rather more intelligent than normal rats

Visited by Harry, Ron and Hermione in PA4 when Ron goes to get rat tonic for Scabbers and Hermione purchases Crookshanks.
