Summary

"So there we were, driving along with an earth-box, a bag of turkey and, squalling his head off on my knee in Sheba's basket, the new boy."

The Toveys are no strangers to disaster, particularly the Siamese-related kind, but when their beloved Solomon dies unexpectedly, they're faced with a completely new type of problem - do they find another cat to replace the one they've lost?

The animals always win in the Tovey household and this time is no exception. It is with the interests of Solomon's (very audibly) grieving sister Sheba at heart that Doreen and Charles set off in search of Solomon Secundus, affectionately known as Seeley.

Joined by a myriad of endearing characters, Seeley ensures he's living up to Solomon's standards in just the amount of time it takes to fall in a fishpond.

This is an enchanting tale that will tickle your funny bone and tug on your heartstrings all in the same breath.

very boring

and the narrater makes listening to this book difficult with her heavy english accent. The story itself is cute but certainly not worthy of spending time listening to it. I would not waste my credits to get this one if I were you.
