Albus Potter (owner)

During his time at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Albus Potter owned a pet ferret. On 1 September, 2017, Albus carried his ferret through King's Cross Station in a cage.

Behind the scenes

  • Some have speculated that this ferret may actually be a Jarvey, which is noted to look like an overgrown ferret. Jarveys, however, live mostly underground and seem to behave aggressively. Furthermore, Jarveys almost constantly cry short (and often rude) phrases, while the animal depicted in the film is silent during all the scene. Thus, it is very unlikely is a Jarvey.
  • According to the Hogwarts supplies list, students are allowed to take an owl or a cat or a toad. However, Albus took a ferret and an owl to Hogwarts. The rule may have been changed by 2017. However, there were exceptions to this rule during the 1990s, including rats (which might have changed by 2017) and Pygmy Puffs (which were owned by Albus' uncle and mother, respectively). 
  • It should be noted that, because it is only glimpsed within the film and is not mentioned at all in the books, it may not actually be a thing. Al also had an owl, so it is unlikely that he would have any other pets.
