It wasn't, we discovered as the months went by, that Sugieh was particularly wicked. It was just that she was a Siamese. Animal lovers Doreen Tovey and her husband Charles acquire their first Siamese kitten to rid themselves of an invasion of mice. But Sugieh is not just any cat. She's an actress, a prima donna, an iron hand in a delicate, blue-pointed glove. She quickly establishes herself as queen of the house, causing chaos daily by screaming like a banshee, chewing up telegrams and tearing holes in anything made of wool. First published over forty years ago, this warm, witty and moving story has never gone out of style; a truly enjoyable read for anyone who's ever been owned by a cat.
