Their magic consists of keeping their body healthy during the lifetime of their human, boosting their human's power, and acting as a repository of information.The spirit currently occupying the body of Amy's cat is old even by the standards of familiars. Being a nosy person, Amy asks Fudge, the name she gave the cat, to tell her some of the things he's seen over the centuries, and about his previous witches and wizards.Settle back along with Amy as Fudge relates a tale of kidnapping, palace intrigue, piracy, thievery and, of course, magic over a couple of millennia.
