And luckily, Ben is there to help you out.

If you’ve been inside the Portrait Vault in Year 5, Ben will reference it here, and you’ll be able to skip one task involving him talking about the fear. If you are not at that point yet, you will have to do this additional task before you can continue with the quest. The following section of the Walkthrough will feature the story after breaking the Curse in the Portrait Vault.

Obviously, there’s no telling if the potion would work as intended on a pet.

Thankfully, you know someone that might be able to help you.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 2 Scaredy Cats Side Quest Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 2 Scaredy Cats Side Quest

Once the waiting time is over, proceed to the Transfiguration Classroom.

Professor McGonagall will be surprised to see you bring pets into her classroom.

This will intrigue the caretaker. You have the option to invite him and Mrs. Norris if you want or refuse to do so.

Shortly after, Fang will get to face his fears.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 2 Scaredy Cats Side Quest

Testing Fang’s bravery requires obtaining at least one out of five stars within an hour.

Once you’re done, Fang’s fear of cats will be gone, but sadly, it appears that your cat is scared of Mrs. Norris now.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 2 Scaredy Cats Side Quest Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery Walkthrough Year 2 Scaredy Cats Side Quest
