Mr. Appin explains to the unbelieving party guests that he spent the last seventeen years trying to teach animals of all kinds to talk, with little success. However, in the last few months Mr. Appin focused only on cats and experienced “glimmers of success” (92). Finally with Tobermory, a “‘Beyond-cat’ of extraordinary intelligence," Mr. Appin reached his goal of successfully teaching an animal to talk (92).
