Mrs. Figg

Something just occurred to me during my 2nd Charms lesson. Mrs. Figg is a Squib and in the book she says that she can't see the dementors that attacked Harry and Dudley. However, in the movie she describes what they looked like to the Fudge during Harry's hearing. Thoughts? Or did I miss something?

In a FAQ, JK Rowling explained that Squibs cannot see Dementors, but they can feel their presence.Most likely Miss Figg lied to Fudge to prove the fact that there really were Dementors in Privet Drive. (Also for her own dignity). Miss Figg had likely been told what a Dementor looked like, but had not actually see one. 'Big with hooded cloaks' isn't really the best description. I hope this helps (:
That makes sense! Thanks Clara!
