Some Potterheads Are Not Happy About Their Pottermore Patronus
When news broke that we could finally find out what our very own patronus is via a Pottermore quiz, Harry Potter fans (who’ve been gobbling up the three new books from J.K. Rowling) were quick to see what incredible creature they were matched up with in this realm of magic and wonder. While some were totally thrilled, others were less than impressed — and still more were downright disappointed.
When we say allHarry Potter fans took the quiz, we surely meant it. J.K. herself ended up with a heron after taking the test, and others found themselves with magical, mythical patronus.

But not everyone was blessed with such enchanting creatures. Some were pretty disappointed with their common critters.
Joss Whedon wasn’t exactly thrilled with his weasel.
Don't talk to me about nobility or tenaciousness or Ron's wonderful family – my life is OVER pic.twitter.com/FiMoDLTbbG

And salmon was just as unwelcome, TBH.
Had to get sorted into a house before I took the patronus test… Hufflepuff with a salmon patronus I've hit a new low in life

Really, who wants a mouse, or worse, a rat?!

My patronus is a rat. Not even pizza rat. Just a regular, dirty, sewage rat.

Or an aardvark?
Boss: "Hey. I need you to put some pants on. Big time."
Me: "MY PATRONUS IS A FUCKING AARDVARK, KAREN. WHAT'S THE POINT?" pic.twitter.com/NXNdyB1QHv

Though perhaps that’s slightly better than getting a shrew.

Or a pig? Talk about disappointing.
I can’t believe I waited 15 years to find out that my Patronus is a fucking pig

We really all wanted something super cool.

But in the end, if you weren’t happy, you can always make your own.
