2019 Halloween Bingo - Black Cat

A Cat Affair - Derek Tangye

Derek Tangye had vowed never to have another cat after Lama. Jeannie was different; she was ready to give a welcome to any stray.

When Lama's double appeared on their doorstep, they were faced with a dilemma. But the problem solved itself in a mysterious and magical way...


I adored these books as a teenager, I wanted to immediately give up school and move to Cornwall to grow daffodils.


Derek Tangye's books are a loving memoir of his life in Cornwall with his wife Jeannie, and the cats and other animals in their lives. They're similar in style to the books by Doreen Tovey and James Herriot. Just simply lovely stories from a gentler time.
