    Summary

    Pangur is a poor storyteller, because he tends to get distracted or bored halfway through, but he does have some good tales. He tells Bellamy all about the Welsh witches who bred him to carry a curse for them, and Niall, the monk who rescued him, and Princess Finnglas, who took him on adventures, and how Pangur finally wound up in an abbey in East Anglia. He's not sure how much of it is bullshit, but when he asks Pangur how old he is, the cat just shakes his head and says he doesn't know. It's a little frustrating, but he's not sure what else he expected from a talking cat.

    His favourite part of every visit, though, is when Sister Clarke takes him through to her private study, where she works in peace on the more elaborate pages and more complex lettering. She hands him the ones they've finished and assembled into books since his last visit, and lets him walk his way through the work, while she sits in silence and watches his reactions. When he's had time and silence to sufficiently absorb the most recent pages, she pours him a glass of whichever wine or mead he's brought with him—picked up during his travels around the country—and they talk.
