Reviews of The Expatriate Siamese
Independent press comment

This is an independent 5 star review of the Kindle edition
Loved this book. I have been, and still am owned by Siamese cats and this is so true of the breed. Wonderful !

We are given a cat’s eye view of the world. Narrated by Tia Maria, a beautiful chocolate-point female, who goes to live on Majorca with her owners, this is a near factual account. The move causes Tia Maria to undergo a complete personality change and to develop much closer emotional links with her human family. She has many adventures from which she somehow always emerges as the heroine. This is a charming tale for cat fanciers and those who, in their heart of hearts, know that the feline mind is far more advanced than the human!

If you enjoy books that are narrated by cats, then this is for you. It will also appeal to those who are familiar with the complex personalities of Siamese cats. Tia-Maria, a self-centred chocolate point, has a change of character when she becomes an over-possessive mother to her son, Ziggy. They are inseparable, but Ziggy’s boisterousness and quest for independence bring dire consequences.You will need to read this charming book to find out what happens when Tia Maria emigrates with her owners to Mallorca. 

Letter from The Traditional Siamese Cat Association
You were kind enough to send me a copy of the book The Expatriate Siamese by Pamela Legge.which I thoroughly enjoyed. The book was excellent and the illustrations were delightful. I do hope that you will let me know if Mrs Legge decides to write any more books about her Siamese.
