My Wizarding Patronus

Elizabeth from Book YAbber, Marci from The Plot Bunny and I will be revealing our Patronuses today and discuss the significance of our Patronuses. For those who are following Pottermas 2016, make sure to check out the introduction here. Also, follow us with the hashtag #Pottermas16.

According to Pottermore, the Patronus is a defensive charm and it produces a silvery-white guardian or protector in the form of an animal. The spell is effective against Dementors and is casted when the witch or wizard has a pure, protective magical concentration of happiness and hope. After Pottermore released the Patronus quiz, I didn't hesitate to find out what animal my Patronus takes the form of. My Patronus is the Grey Squirrel.

According to, a person who has a squirrel spirit animal has the following qualities:

You are often resourceful and have a way of manifesting all the things you need in the present and for the future. You like to be prepared for all occasions and are ready to socialize at any given moment. People with squirrel energy are very good at balancing their lives with work and play.

Squirrel people tend to be a little erratic at times, often trying to do many things at once. Take the time to stop and listen to your inner self and focus on one thing at a time.

The squirrel is very fitting for my personality. I am resourceful and I'm a planner. I like to be prepared for all situations. I am the type of person who asks "What If?" I like to multi-task but sometimes I need to slow down and focus my energy toward one task at a time.

What is your Patronus and do you think you Patronus is a good fit for you?


  1. Nicole,

    I think this is a perfect patronus/spirit animal for you. You are always prepared and I know how hard you work and organize. I think the Patronus quiz and the spirit animal guide is spot on. Plus squirrels are so cute! :-)

    1. Thank you! I am glad that I am a grey squirrel. I was super worried about what I was going to get when I took the Patronus quiz.
