Overview


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.

    Hysterically funny!

    This is a great book for everyone, not just cat lovers. It's the adventures and misadventures of a couple who adopt a Siamese cat without a clue what they're in for, since Siamese are NOT like regular cats! Even if you're not into cats you'll love this book. I laughed myself to tears the whole time I was reading it, and I can't wait to read the other ones by this author.

    Can she catch mice?! A great author and a fun read.

    I love this author and hope they are able to get more of her titles as Nook books. This book was written in the 1950s and has the flavor of small town life in England. Doreen and her husband had never intended to have cats. When their pet squirrel died and they couldn’t replace him, the mice began chewing things up, looking for his food. The Tovey’s didn’t like traps and didn’t know want to do until they ran into a neighbor who’d just gotten a Siamese kitten. They asked if she could catch mice – “Catch mice" he bellowed, He described her antics and they were enchanted, and the bonus was, Siamese didn’t break things. This amusing book is about owning, and being owned by, a Siamese cat and her kittens. From the woman collecting for the church organ that Solomon accidentally threw up on when she squeezed him, to falling into the water barrel and dripping green water all over the cream carpet. The stories are so funny, and written so well, you can see them in your mind’s eye. All her books are fun and funny.
