You won’t find another book about cats as funny as this one! For cat lovers old and new – particularly those whose lives are ruled by their feline friends!
When Doreen Tovey brought home her first Siamese kitten she had no idea what she was letting herself in for…
Animal lovers Doreen and Charles Tovey were used to opening their doors to various pets: from Shorty, their highly-strung budgerigar to Blondin, a mischievous squirrel.
One animal they had never owned was cats, but when their country home became overrun with mice they decide to bring in a kitten.
But Siamese pedigrees are not like normal cats…
Before long Doreen’s world is turned upside down by the new arrival, and from that moment on she never looked back…
CATS IN THE BELFRY is the first of Doreen Tovey’s memoirs about living with Siamese cats: set in the British countryside, it is told with wit, mischief, and above all humour.
