Rediscover this lovable classic in a delightful new illustrated edition of these warm and witty cat tales, first published over forty years ago.
Animal lovers Doreen Tovey and her husband Charles acquire their first Siamese kitten to rid themselves of an invasion of mice, although they worry about the cat attacking the birds. But Sugieh is not just any cat. She's an iron hand in a delicate, blue-pointed glove; an actress, a prima donna, an empress of cats, and she quickly establishes herself as queen of the house. Thus enslaved, the Toveys try to minimize the chaos Sugieh causes on a daily basis: chewing up telegrams, tearing holes into anything made out of wool, and screaming like a banshee. However things get more complicated once Sugieh decides she's ready to become the perfect mother. Then she and her adorable kittens devote themselves to tightening their grip on the household.
You’ll share Doreen Tovey’s enthusiasm for animals and her infectious feeling of joy toward all the creatures in her household. Surrounded by the friendly astonishment of the village characters who populate the neighborhood, like Father Adams, the local rector—the Tovey household is here again with it’s deep though sorely tried love of animals and its splendid portrayal of the country scene.
The affectionate illustrations by artist Dan Brown, who specializes in animals, truly capture the essence of the Siamese, helping to bring both the stories and characters to life.

The Toveys attempt to settle down to quiet life in the country. Unfortunately, their tyrannical Siamese cats have other ideas. From causing an uproar on the BBC to claiming to have been kidnapped, Sheba and Solomon's outrageous behavior leaves the Toveys at their wits' end. Meanwhile, Doreen has to contend with her husband's disastrous skills as a handyman, a squirrel that chews the buttons off all his suits, and a runaway tortoise named Tarzan. Both human and animal characters come to life on the page in these witty stories, including Sidney, the problem-prone gardener, and Blondin, the brandy-swilling squirrel.

In a new edition, with 20 delightful black and white illustrations, Tovey’s tales are ready for rediscovery by a new generation of cat lovers. A truly enjoyable read for anyone who's ever been owned by a cat, it will tickle your funny bone and tug on your heartstrings.
