wizarding places → eeylops owl emporium & magical menagerie. eeylops owl emporium was described as being relatively small, and dark inside, probably because owls are nocturnal creatures. on the outside of the shop, many different colors and species of owls hung in cages, watching all of the passersby. meanwhile, the magical menagerie is a very cramped and noisy shop with every inch of wall covered by cages. it sells all kinds of animals - poisonous orange snails, a giant jewel-encrusted tortoise, sleek black rats that are very intelligent, owls, ravens, cats of every colour, puffskeins, a transforming rabbit and much more.
I don’t get why in Harry Potter the ministry is so cut up over looking for Sirius, but they can’t find him, why don’t they just send him an owl???? Owls just seem to find and know where everyone is. They could just send him a letter and follow the owl. The ministry is full of idiots.
