Union Flag


DOREEN TOVEY lived in a 250-year-old cottage in Somerset, the ideal setting for her bestselling books. She was president of the Siamese Cat Club and has been president of the West of England Cat Club.

(24th October 1918 – 13th January 2008)

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 Somerset.

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.

"Every so often, there comes along a book – or if you're lucky – books, which gladden the heart." Cat World Magazine
