Harry felt something brush against his knees and started, but it was only Crookshanks, Hermione's bandy-legged ginger cat, who wound himself once around Harry's legs, purring, then jumped on to Sirius's lap and curled up.

'At least you've known what's been going on,' he said bracingly.
'It's been awful,' said Ginny sadly.
