que la présence de son fils unique auprès d’elle n’était pas négociable. La pauvre créature s’inclina rapidement, imposant à son tour la présence du chaton au reste de la communauté des deux-pattes-en-robe-brune-et-crâne-pelé, ou moines donc, que les deux chats toléraient sur leur territoire.

Buddhist monasteries were, therefore, home to an astonishingly diverse array of people but, as Timothy Barrett argues, it was not only a diverse cast of human characters who played a role within Buddhist monastic life. Barrett highlights how the communal life upon which monasticism is based benefits not only monks and nuns, but also certain types of animals, especially cats. While cats lived in a symbiotic relationship with monastics, since they helped to keep the large stores of food …

I was reminded of this as I read an account of a monastery in Myanmar which had gained some notoriety because its monks have demonstrated that, contrary to all popular wisdom, it is possible to train cats. The monks have proven that cats can be taught to jump when prompted. Tourists flock to the monastery to see this phenomenon. A reporter was therefore dispatched to do a feature on the famous monastery of the jumping cats. At his request a monk wearily put the cats through …

Many of these monks were scribes who produced beautifully decorated illuminated manuscripts, written on vellum. Cats would have been invaluable at protecting this costly material from rodents and, no doubt, would have provided some welcome …

But even the Church could not entirely stamp out a regard for cats. It is generally supposed that the Romanesque bestiary overlooked the …
