The badger is taking a nap and has
forgotten its disguise as a priest. It can also take the shape of a
tea kettle. When a monk heats the pot, it will run away as a badger. It
is chased in Morin Temple and put in a box. Then it takes the shape
of a teakettle again. The animal has also been described as a
raccoon dog (Sinister Designs). I think it is my cat Joris.
