Summary: Draco hasn't quite mastered his animagus form yet.

Harry wandered the halls with no particular destination in mind. He heard footsteps and glanced up to see Malfoy approaching. Harry sighed and debated ducking into a random classroom, but decided it would only make things that much worse the next time he encountered the blond. He plodded resolutely forward. However, as he got closer to the Slytherin he noticed something... odd.

They stopped three feet apart and before he could stop himself Harry blurted, "What have you been up to?"

Draco sniffed, sneered and then replied in a pompous drawl, "I have been working on my animagus form, Potter."

Instead of looking impressed, as he was sure the Slytherin wanted him to, Harry grinned. "Let me guess, a cat of some sort?"

Draco gaped at him and sputtered, "How... how did you know?"

"You still have.. um..." Harry pointed at his head, trying to suppress a laugh.

Malfoy immediately dug his hands into the platinum locks and then froze as his fingers encountered two furry cat ears sticking up on either side of his head. His look of utter shock was priceless.

"They're a very pretty grey, I must admit." Harry said, crossing his arms and staring at the new appendages in mock appraisal. "Tell me, do you also have a tail?" He tried to peer around the shell-shocked boy.

At that Draco's eyes went wide and he quickly reached around behind his back. His startled squeak a moment later answered Harry's question.

"You.. ah.. you might want to go see Madame Pomfrey about that," the Gryffindor informed him carefully, torn between the urge to fall on the floor laughing at Malfoy's predicament and wanting to pull him close and comfort the obviously distressed Slytherin. And where the hell had that urge come from?

Draco nodded absently and then took off toward the Hospital Wing at a run. He was almost to the end of the corridor when Harry called out to him.

"Hey, Malfoy."

Surprisingly, Draco stopped and turned, his face quizzical but not annoyed.

"For the record, you make a pretty hot catboy."

Draco blushed to the tips of his adorable grey ears and then disappeared from sight. His rapid footfalls echoed for several minutes.

Harry grinned to himself and began to whistle as he continued on his way.

Next: Here Kitty, Kitty

Very cute => Your Draco seemed so adorable...=>
A sequel, please?
Byaghro: Ouran's Honey - With Cake!byaghro on April 23rd, 2008 05:36 am (UTC)
Yay! Thank you! He was trying to be superior but the thought of being "disfigured" with cat ears forever sort of startled his arrogance right out of him. LOL!

You know, I didn't have a sequel in mind but maybe I can come up with something. *prods Muse*

Oh, that is too cute for words! I'd love to see what happened next *grins*
Byaghrobyaghro on April 23rd, 2008 05:39 am (UTC)
Thank you! I didn't have a specific sequel in mind but as my own grey cat is sitting here, harassing me for attention... I suddenly have a few ideas that might work. We'll see! ^_^

Draco is so very cute >^.^<
I do hope a sequel plot bunny comes your way, Harry and cute Draco cat!boy sound like some fun fluff and humor.
Byaghrobyaghro on April 25th, 2008 03:10 am (UTC)
Thank you for the review! A sequel plot bunny DID come my way, several in fact. I shall be posting shortly! Woo!
thrnbrookethrnbrooke on April 23rd, 2008 06:44 am (UTC)
Oh I can sooo imagine that sight! I sooo agree with Harry!
Byaghrobyaghro on April 25th, 2008 03:11 am (UTC)
*grin* Yea, I'm kind of a sucker for catboys too!
Jaeenchanted_jae on April 23rd, 2008 06:53 am (UTC)
OMGodric, I love it! I would love it more if Harry got to spend more time with catboy!Draco. *pokes your muse*

Also, there's a comm called harry_draco_cat that would welcome this little morsel.

Edit: Oh dear heavens, I actually, literally, just had a delighted little shiver go through me! Damn, you're good.

Lovely ficlet
Owww, poor confused sweet kitty!Draco *strokes him*
You sooo should write a sequel, please, because Harry shouldn't pull through this so easily *smirks*
Byaghrobyaghro on April 25th, 2008 03:14 am (UTC)
Re: Lovely ficlet
Wasn't he adorable? He wanted to be pompous but got too freaked out, LOL!

I worked on it a bit & I suddenly have enough stuff to turn this into a bit of an arc. O.O So I shall be posting more soon!

You wrote Catboy!Draco! ^_^ *Squees* you have no idea how much I am loving you at this moment! This fic is so adorable it's perfect, but you know that perfection can still evolve >.> so a sequel about what happens when Draco gets out of the hospital wing might be nifty <.<
Byaghrobyaghro on April 25th, 2008 03:19 am (UTC)
Glad you liked it! Woo! ^_^

Funny you should mention a sequel. It's kind of becoming a bit of an arc/series. O.O Not sure how that happened!

(Anonymous) on April 24th, 2008 07:54 am (UTC)
very cute... how 'bout a sequel?
Byaghrobyaghro on April 25th, 2008 03:24 am (UTC)
A sequel is indeed coming! Woo!
Ai, aye, eye!: Sophie and Howlgeminai5 on April 25th, 2008 02:11 am (UTC)
I can SO see Draco as a siamese or some other white cat with grey points.

Great little story! I'm so sorry I didn't get to read it sooner. My LJ isn't sending me emails to let me know when you update like it's supposed to. *pouts* That and I just got back from NYC so I've been internet-less for days.

Can't wait for your next story! ^_^
Byaghrobyaghro on April 25th, 2008 03:22 am (UTC)
I'm glad you liked the story! You know, I was imagining Draco looking something like my Nezumi: http://pics.livejournal.com/byaghro/pic/00005czr/g8

But you're right, if anyone had the traits of a pushy, loud, demanding Siamese... it's Draco, LOL!!

So good to hear from you! My LJ hasn't been notifying me either. *kicks LJ*

And speaking of NYC - I'm going week after next! Any tips for a first timer?
