Character Analysis

To make up to Ron for having lost his rat, Scabbers (who turns out to have been Wormtail in hiding), during Book 3, Sirius sends Ron a tiny little owl. Ginny names the owl Pigwidgeon – Pig for short. Pig is extremely enthusiastic, but he's also a bit scatterbrained. (We should also note that "Pigwidgeon" is an old slang term for anything small (source), which certainly describes Pig the owl.)
