Pottermore has added a new Patronus test for members, though you only get one chance to take it and many people aren't exactly thrilled by the selection of animals.

Actress Ivanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) received a Salmon as her patronus. Yes, a salmon.

Hypable: Complete List of Patronus Animals

J.K. Rowling tries to make fans feel better about the Patronus selection

J.K. Rowling took the test and, surprise, she got a beautiful bird that she likes. Oh, how could that happen, I wonder? Oh, maybe she helped write the test? I've always loved great blue herons and thought of them as my spirit animal, too, so I have to point out that her bird looks more like a swan in flight than a heron.

I took the test and got Manx Cat, the tail-less cat from the Isle of Mann. I'm not really a cat person, and I wish it was a wild animal instead of a domesticated cat. This is one good reason why Dolores Umbridge should not have had a Patronus either - she has tainted cats forever! While I understand that it is canon for a Patronus to be a surprise, sometimes it would be better if Pottermore let members have more control over stuff that is supposed to be fun and represent the members.

(HI SIP, this is David from the forum, in case I never told you that before. I'm still having no luck access the site from either my iPad or my laptop. There's still that login page with the invisible cache code :( )

A Manx Cat does seem a bit out of left field, but according to a Dorling Kindersley book on Cats that I own, a legend of that species' origin is that a Spanish galleon sank near the Isle of Mann some 600 years ago, "and tailless cats were seen to have swam ashore from the wreckage." So if that is to be believed, Manx Cats started off as wild, feral survivors who adapt to rough environments, which is not *that* bad of a spirit animal. Sure beats poor Evannah's salmon though. :P
