This is my latest book, Ship’s Cat Doris. It is all about a cat’s struggle to find his feet amongst the hectic life on a boat. He faces a lot of challenges to fit in with the strange crew of the old trawler, ‘Prosperity’. Doris’s story is based on my own cat’s experiences. He is the main character in Ship’s Cat Doris and now is a very old and well travelled cat, having been at sea for many years. This entry was posted in Doris on April 19, 2012 by janesimmons.

This book is AMAZING. Doris the cat is such a great character, and she does such neat things. It kept me entertained the whole time.

When the owners of 'Prosperity' choose a little kitten to be their new ship's cat, they think he's a girl and name him Doris! But soon Doris finds this isn't his only problem: settling into life on board and finding his place alongside the ship's dogs, Little Madge and Big John, and Freda, their dotty bird, is going to be tricky. Not to mention facing the local shipyard bully, Jasper.
