Publisher's Summary

"All our animals showed their independence at a dishearteningly early age." The Toveys attempt to settle down to a quiet life in the country. Unfortunately for them, however, their tyrannical Siamese cats have other ideas. From causing an uproar on the BBC to staying out all night and claiming to have been kidnapped, Sheba and Solomon's outrageous behaviour leaves the Toveys at their wits end. Meanwhile, Doreen has to contend with her husband's disastrous skills as a handyman, and a squirrel that chews the buttons off all his suits. Both human and animal characters come to life here, including Sidney the problem-prone gardener and Blondin the brandy-swilling squirrel.This witty and stylish tale will have animal-lovers giggling to the very last page.

Good listen

I read Doreen Tovey's books years ago and loved them then,so I was happy to see the audiobooks were available.This is the story of the Toveys' life with assorted animals (and friends),particularly their Siamese cats,and the madness that the cats,animals (and friends) can cause. Particularly relevant if you love cats,but I enjoyed them for the humour as a non-cat loving teenager,so wider appeal as well!

I particularly appreciated Joy Gelardi's narration,her voice fits the books perfectly.
