Domovoy are small male, and covered all over with hair all over though they are known to take on the form of the house’s present or former owners. They also take on the form of cats and dogs.Sometimes domovoi behave like poltergeists but don’t wish to cause harm.Every house has a domovoi, and will act as the house’s guardian and will sometimes help with household chores. They like to live under a stove; they keep the house in peace and order and will reward those who live within the house for keeping the home nice. Some householders will keep their domovoi happy by leaving him milk and biscuits. However if the domovoi becomes angry usually because the householders swear and are untidy, he will play nasty tricks on them, and will act like a poltergeist until everything is returned to order.Boggart
Boggarts are short, stout, very hairy and incredibly smelly. They can make things disappear and sour milk. This household pest also likes to pull bed sheets off sleeping people, and put their clammy hands on the human’s face when they’re trying to sleep. Hanging a horse shoe above the front door of your house gives you some protection.
