Edit: Thanks to severkarogueova who suggested a purring Draco when I hadn't even considered the possibility *facepalm* and to geminai5 who recommended Siamese!Draco - such a needy breed is perfect for our favorite Slytherin! *hugs*
Summary: Harry's training pays off... maybe.

Start at the beginning - Meow

Sequel to Harry's Animagus Training 101

"I have... um... toys... you can play with." He pulled a small ball with a bell from his pocket and jingled it weakly.

"Have you gone mental?!" Malfoy shouted, causing Harry to jump. "You do understand that an Animagus merely takes on the form and traits of their chosen animal, they don't become that animal, don't you? Merlin, next you'll be suggesting that I try chasing mice."

The Gryffindor blushed and the blond's eyes widened. "You actually expected me to chase mice didn't you?" he asked incredulously.

"I'm just trying to help!" Harry shouted back, embarrassed and frustrated that this wasn't going at all how he'd planned. Malfoy was supposed to show up, relax, transform and then be eternally grateful. Perhaps he'd even stop harassing Harry and his friends out of thanks. He wasn't supposed to glare and shout and belittle all of Harry's ideas. Apparently the Gryffindor had forgotten who he was dealing with.

"If you want to help, why don't you try suggesting something useful for a change instead of these idiotic, nonsense ideas of yours?"

Harry gritted his teeth. "Alright, fine. Come here." He grabbed the Slytherin's wrist and dragged him bodily to the couch. Harry sat at one end and pulled the other boy down beside him. "Lie down."

Malfoy gaped at him. "What?"

"Lie down and put your head in my lap."

"I'll do no such..." The blond tried to stand but Harry snagged his arm again and forced him back onto the couch.

"I'm not going to molest you, you great prat. Now LIE. DOWN," the dark haired boy snarled, eyes flashing.

The other boy struggled for a moment before finally growling and flopping down in Harry's lap with far more force than necessary. "Here. Happy now, you Gryffindor pervert?"

Instead of deigning to reply, Harry pulled his wand and cast Finite Incantatum on the glamours surrounding Malfoy's ears and tail.

"Potter, what are you... oooohhh." Malfoy's complaint was cut short as Harry began to scratch behind his right ear. After several minutes of Harry's gentle ministrations, the blond visibly relaxed.

"Better now, are we?" the Gryffindor asked with a small chuckle.

The only response was a rumbling, "Hmm" of agreement. A "hmm" of agreement that didn't stop. Harry paused and listened. "Malfoy, are you... purring?"

The noise stuttered and then ceased. "That's preposterous, Potter. Malfoys don't purr," a sleepy voice murmured. "Do the left ear again would you?"

Harry complied and then grinned as the non-purr immediately started up again. Conjuring a book, the dark haired boy continued to pet his sleepy companion. He even went so far as to occasionally run his hand down Malfoy's spine in a soothing caress.


Some time later Harry opened his eyes. He stretched and decided he must have dozed off for a bit. Reaching down to wake the Slytherin, Harry gasped when he realized he had not a blond haired boy, but a blue point Siamese curled up in his lap.

"Malfoy!" he shouted, far louder than he intended.

The results of his yell would have been hysterical if the ensuing injuries hadn't been quite so painful. The Siamese jumped a foot straight up, puffed out its tail and landed back in Harry's lap with all claws extended. Claws which promptly sank into the tender flesh of Harry's thighs. Harry shouted again, this time in pain. The cat looked at him and hissed. It then turned back into Malfoy, who proceeded to fall off the couch with a loud thump.

"Potter, what the hell?!" Malfoy yelped, sitting up and punching Harry in the leg.

The Gryffindor growled, "So help me Malfoy, if you do any more damage to me I'm going to..."

"Damage to you? What about the damage to me when you pushed me off of the couch?"

"I didn't push you off of the couch. You fell off after you transformed back." Harry explained, clutching his throbbing thighs.

Malfoy blinked at him. "After I transformed back?"

Harry nodded. "Yes, when I woke up you were in full Animagus form. You're a Siamese, apparently."

"Really? I was fully transformed?" The blond broke into a grin that took Harry's breath away. "I can't believe I finally did it! And in my sleep, too. I wonder why." He ran his hands through his hair, and froze. The grin fell away from his face and was immediately replaced with stony anger. "I wonder why I STILL HAVE CAT EARS!?!"

I don't know how much yowling cat!sex they'll have in this one, but I hope it won't be G rated the entire way through. *grin*

I'm glad you liked purring!Draco! Woo!

Ahaha, the non-purring! So cute~ (^_^)
Byaghrobyaghro on May 1st, 2008 06:34 am (UTC)
Thank you! I can so imagine Draco being affronted at the suggestion! LOL!

Oh love the cuddly, purring cat!Draco, so sweet.
Thank you
Byaghrobyaghro on May 1st, 2008 06:42 am (UTC)
You're welcome! I liked the thought of Draco being sweet & cuddly in Harry's lap - but not like that... yet! LOL!
Ai, aye, eye!geminai5 on May 1st, 2008 06:10 am (UTC)
"Potter, what are you... oooohhh." Malfoy's complaint was cut short as Harry began to scratch behind his right ear.

^_^ That is love. :D And Yay! He's a Siamese! Woot! Draco's reaction as a full-on cat being startled awake was hilariously spot on too. Poor Harry. :)

I hope you're having as much fun writing this as I am reading this. :)
Byaghrobyaghro on May 1st, 2008 06:43 am (UTC)
I updated to give you full cred for the Siamese idea! Woot!! Thank you!!

I really am cracking myself up with this series! It's nice to know my bizarre sense of humor translates to others! LOL! ^_^

Im truly in love with this story. Fluffy and cute, just the way I like them.
Byaghrobyaghro on May 1st, 2008 06:44 am (UTC)
YAY!! Thank you! As much as I love to read it, I don't think I've ever written pure fluff like this before. It is a lot of fun! XD
Jaeenchanted_jae on May 1st, 2008 06:22 am (UTC)
Aw, I want to cuddle Siamese!Draco! *knocks Harry out of the way*
Byaghrobyaghro on May 1st, 2008 06:45 am (UTC)
HAHA!!! I'd be careful if I were you!! Kitty still has ALL of his claws, as Harry can tell you! LOL!
thrnbrookethrnbrooke on May 1st, 2008 06:50 am (UTC)
Oh he's beautiful even as a cat! Still has the cat ears eh? Hmmm.
Byaghrobyaghro on May 2nd, 2008 04:25 am (UTC)
The plot thickens, eh? More posted! Woo!
Faithfaithwood on May 1st, 2008 12:12 pm (UTC)
Mmmm, thinking about purring!Draco makes me all hot and bothered.

*loves you*

"I wonder why I STILL HAVE CAT EARS!?!"

Oh, hush, catboy! We like you that way!
Byaghrobyaghro on May 2nd, 2008 04:27 am (UTC)
Oh, hush, catboy! We like you that way! -- Yes! We all know that's the REAL reason he's still like that, author's prerogative - LOL!!

Malfoy was supposed to show up, relax, transform and then be eternally grateful. Perhaps he'd even stop harassing Harry and his friends out of thanks.

LMAO! Just like Harry to think about that. Do go on...

And now... to your request *rolls up sleeves and opens Blood-Bound ch.5 document* Let's see if I can get my arse into gear...

Looking forward to the next installment...

Byaghrobyaghro on May 2nd, 2008 04:28 am (UTC)
It seemed like such a Harry thing for him to forget he was dealing with a Slytherin - LOL! YAY for more Blood-Bound!

Next installment is up! Woot! *hugs back*
They call me "Two Lobsters": Buffy Squee!darthsarah on May 1st, 2008 01:54 pm (UTC)
This is so great!
I knew he would be a Siamese!

So cute! I love the purring!
Byaghrobyaghro on May 2nd, 2008 04:29 am (UTC)
Yay! Thank you!! geminai5 gets all of the cred for the Siamese thing. I was going to have him be a grey and cream tortoiseshell like my kitty but Siamese just seemed to fit his personality!
Moon Goddesscyn_ful on May 1st, 2008 02:29 pm (UTC)
He still has cat ears! I love it.

Poor Harry. Doesn't he know you don't wake a sleeping kitty like that?
Byaghrobyaghro on May 2nd, 2008 04:30 am (UTC)
He's learning the hard way! You'd think he'd be used to evil Crookshanks by now & would know a FEW things about cats, guess not. LOL!

Hooray for purring Draco! (And Draco in Harry's lap ^^)

I'm so glad he still has cat ears because that means we get to read more.
Byaghrobyaghro on May 2nd, 2008 04:32 am (UTC)
Yes! Draco purring in Harry's lap just holds a certain appeal doesn't it? ^_^

Yup, I've posted the next one already - woo! Couldn't fix the cat ears on the first try now could I? LOL!
