This book is a true heartwarming tale of the authors relationship with her Siamese cat, Kym.
Siamese cats are demanding characters, but the cat that dominated Joyce Stranger's life for thirteen years must have been one of the most demanding of all. Noisy, aggressive, insisting always on having his own way, greedy, obstreperous, he became an important part of the family, living in very close conjunction with his mistress, not because she wanted it that way but because he simply never took No for an answer. When crossed, he deliberately kicked the china ornaments to destruction, until they had to be permanently replaced by wooden ones. Cat flu, caught one year when there was an epidemic in kennels, nearly ended his life. After that he went away with the family, travelling all over England, Scotland and Wales, first in a caravan, and then later in the family boat. Accident-prone, Kym tended to spoil family holidays, but, like a problem child, made himself all the more deeply loved. His curiosity landed him in adventures that frequently embarrassed his owners, and even when he was an old cat, he still contrived to get into dangerous mischief. For all that, all the family agree that there can never be another like Kym. He was quite a cat.
