It is, with great sadness, that we report the death of Doreen
Tovey. Over the years, Doreen Tovey's books gave so
much pleasure to so many readers.
Full of gentle humour and heart-warming tales, her books
described the adventures and antics of the cats (and other animals) with whom she shared her life in
Doreen Tovey wrote more than a dozen books (which sold more than
120,000 copies in 10 countries) and she was also president of the Siamese Cat Club.
Her books were serialised in The People's Friend magazine and
won her the devotion of many thousands of animal lovers in the UK and overseas. She will be greatly missed by
her many, many fans.
