Courting Cats (G; Mrs Figg, OFC, OMC, canon half-Kneazles; 200 words)

A long time ago, [info]lalaith_niniel prompted me with Arabella Figg.

Courting Cats (G; Mrs Figg, OFC, OMC, canon half-Kneazles; 200 words): The problem of encouraging cats and dogs to live together isn't too much for male optimism to overcome.

After the Battle of Hogwarts, Arabella left Little Whinging for Diagon Alley and took a job from her sister, Isabella, at the Magical Menagerie. She liked the work, and Tibbles, Snowy, Mr Paws, and Tufty liked being able to spend the days with her . . . until Mr Frank began turning up.

"What's the matter with that lot?" he asked, nodding at the puffed up half-Kneazles glaring at him from the shop counter.

"They can smell the Crup stench on you."

"'Stench'? That's unfair, Mrs Figg."

"They think so, too."

Mr Frank removed his hat. "Fancy taking a spot of tea with me at Fortescue's today?"


"Tibbles, what a thing to say!"

"What did he say?"

"That Crup breeding is an unfortunate profession."

"Oh, really, Arabella," Isabella scolded.

Mr Frank frowned. "Do you agree with him?"

"Of course not," Arabella replied, "but you can't blame Tibbles for his opinion."

"You certainly can," retorted Isabella, as Arabella moved down the counter to assist a customer and the half-cats turned their backs on Mr Frank. "Don't give up on her."

He put his hat back on. "I won't."

"Where are you going?"

"Off to figure out how to court a pack o' cats!"
