Just imagine the stress of being a student at Hogwarts. You have to leave your family behind to go to a school where right outside there's a tree that just might beat you to a pulp. The woods are full of monsters, the paintings all watch you and there are ghosts in the bathrooms. Not to mention the giant snakes, giant dogs and giant everything else that might kill or maim you. The staff mostly seem like nice people, but this school is dangerous. You really need someone to comfort you and make you feel safe. And since it's going to take some time to make friends if you're new, it's good to have a pet right off the bat.
Pets and Hogwarts go together like Polyjuice Potion and sneaky plans. From Hedwig the owl to Trevor the toad to Scabbers the rat, there are plenty of pets to go around, even if they aren't all the cuddly sort that can snuggle with you at night. if you plan to spend any time at Hogwarts, you need to have your pet picked out and ready to go. Lucky for you, there's no need to bust out the wand and try a spell to figure this one out. Just take the quiz and see what pet is right for you!
