Anna W. <3
In a fit of blatant insanity, Leanna had decided it'd be a rather decent idea to take her cat to help "choose" his own food for once, as if he could communicate anything coherent to her at all. He certainly did have his opinions of food though, and she was tired of wasting money on his finicky eating habits. Magical Menagerie had a nice variety of cat foods (Cassius refused to eat anything from muggle pet shops), and that was Leanna's first option.
Summer weather was light and pleasant, which made the shopping trip slightly more bearable than it would have been. The familiarity that came along with the wizarding world -- something she'd missed quite a bit, as an understatement, over the holidays -- was welcome, and it made her feel nostalgic and eager all at once. Fourth year, she'd be in fourth year. Halfway through...no, she wouldn't think about that now.
Cassius began to meow, high-pitched, annoying, and all-too frequent little squeals for attention. "Oh, shut up, Cass." She could feel the basket's weight pushing down on her arm as she trotted through the city, switched sides to relieve the tingling soreness, and almost dropped the container. A streak of white flashed by, and the cat was gone. "CASSIUS! COME BACK HERE! Sorry, sorry, excuse me, sorry." Leanna's yells turned to apologetic mumbles. She shoved through the crowd of people, her head spinning in every direction, and she remembered a similar event, albeit on the Hogwarts Express, where Cassius had run off.
"Sorry, have you seen a cat anywhere? By any chance?" She prodded a girl who didn't look too much younger than Leanna herself. "He's white and...kind of fat...he just uh, disappeared." Leanna wasn't a fan of looking as though she couldn't take care of her own pets properly. As she spoke, she continued to glance around for Cassius, but also for any other suspicious-looking people who might have scooped him up. There were some shady-looking merchants lurking around in the vicinity.
