The Post Office, Owls and Other Mysteries in Harry Potter
Some details of the magical world are not always very clear to Harry Potter readers such as the post office and the owls who contribute to it.

Some would argue that the Department is not renowned for its effectiveness, a fairly likely response and verified many times by Harry and his friends!
Another question is about Croutard's presence at Hogwarts. Ron brings it with him to the school of his first days or the letter of admission specifies that only cats, owls and toads are accepted ... No doubt a rodent in a dormitory is not unanimous and yet curiously no one complains ...
