Life in a cottage in the West Country of England is peaceful for Doreen and her husband Charles, their donkey Annabel, and Siamese cats Sheba and Seeley. Seeley came into their lives when their first tom, (Solomon) died, Sheba missed her brother and Seeley brought the sounds and smells of another cat back into the house. After Sheba’s passing Doreen and her husband get a blue point named Shebalu and it is loath at first sight. Eventually they become friends and Seeley goes from being the extrovert, grabbing all the attention, to being her protector. She learns about life in the valley from him and develops her own personality, from stealing the butter off the table to destroying flower arrangements. Seeley still can’t climb but goes 40 feet up a pine when startled by a neighbor. Father Adams is having trouble with two men from the neighboring village who are poaching on his odd jobs and Miss Wellington is giving walks to neighbors dogs. Not without consequences but things work themselves out. The animals and people of these stories are very enjoyable.
