Summary: Now that Harry knows Draco's little secret, what's he going to do about it?
Sequel to Meow
Draco spent the next week perpetually tense, waiting for the backlash from Potter finding out about his little Animagus mishap. Each day he would wake up wondering how it would happen. Would the Weasel start calling him CatFerret or FerretCat? Would Granger give him pitying looks and try to slip him pamphlets called things like Achieving Your Animagus Form With Poise and Dignity? Would the entire Gryffindor table meow and hiss at him when he walked by?
But each night he went to bed, as yet unscathed. He could never decide if he was relieved or terrified by this fact.
One week rolled into two and he was beginning to relax, thinking that perhaps he had dodged a hex due to Gryffindor nobility. And then Potter snagged him in the hall after Potions. Most of the Slytherins were already halfway to their dorm so he had no one to call out to as he was dragged unceremoniously into a hidden alcove.
Harry had spent the last week observing Draco Malfoy with an intensity that would have concerned Ron and Hermione, if they'd caught on to what he was up to. As it was, he managed to elude the suspicions of his best friends while he watched Malfoy's every move.
At first Harry thought that Madame Pomfrey had corrected Draco's catboy problem but upon closer inspection, he realized this was not the case. If he looked very carefully he could see the blond's hair shift, as if moved by the twitching of invisible ears. And Harry swore he saw the occasional flick of a tail beneath the hem if the Slytherin's robes.
Deciding that Malfoy's feline traits were simply hidden under heavy glamours, Harry finally decided to test his theory. To that end he caught up with the boy after Potions one afternoon and dragged him unceremoniously into a hidden alcove.
