Overview

So there we were, driving along with an earth-box, a bag of turkey and, squalling his head off on my knee in Sheba's basket, the new boy.' The Toveys are no strangers to disaster, particularly the Siamese-related kind, but when their beloved Solomon dies unexpectedly, they're faced with a completely new type of problem - do they find another cat to replace the one they've lost? The animals always win in the Tovey household and this time is no exception. It is with the interests of Solomon's (very audibly) grieving sister Sheba at heart that Doreen and Charles set off in search of Solomon Secundus, affectionately known as Seeley. Joined by a myriad of endearing characters, Seeley ensures he's living up to Solomon's standards in just the amount of time it takes to fall in a fishpond. This is an enchanting tale that will tickle your funny bone and tug on your heartstrings all in the same breath.

    If you love cats you will love this author

    When Solomon, her beloved Siamese (Cats in the Belfry, Cats in Cahoots) dies, Doreen Tovey wants to find his double. All the things she loved in Solomon she hopes to find again as a comfort for her, her husband Charles and Solomon’s sister Sheba.

    She and Charles find many possibilities but none are quite right until they find Solomon Secundus, otherwise known as Seeley. He brings balance back into their home and soon they are busy trying to keep him out of trouble and introducing him to life in the West Country of England.

    Her husband Charles has taken up bee keeping, much to her dismay and Annabel the donkey is as wayward as ever. There are lots of amusing anecdotes about the joys of being owned by a Siamese and vivid descriptions of life in their valley. Her stories make me laugh, even though I’ve read them many times.

    Life with two cats and a donkey has plenty of ups and downs but the vignettes are humorous, as are the ones about the people living in their village. I enjoy the stories about them as much as the stories about the cats. Miss Wellington and Father Adams add their own stories and drama.

    These books are really fun.
