George and Flora - Beyond the cat flap
             George and Flora Head to the Country


George and Flora are two cats who think themselves human. In Beyond the Cat Flap, the cats settle in to their new home and discover the neighbourhood.

In He

ad to the Country, we join them in their discovery of the Yorkshire Dales, meeting rats, horses, squirrels and the circus.

The books were inspired by my two Birman cats which I raised from 3 week old kittens. George and Flora readily posed for photographs, joined in every household activity and made friends with the neighbours, which gave the material for the first book. The subsequent book arose from our holidays in the country which they were most happy to join in
