Seriously Mum, How Many Cats? by Alan Parks

March 28, 2021

I read the first book in this series a few years ago, so it was lovely to rejoin Alan Parks and his wife Lorna on their Alpaca farm in Andalucia. I very much enjoyed the author’s accounts of their off-grid life in a remote part of the Spanish province and chuckled at the escapades of the Alpacas. They seem to be quite difficult creatures to breed, and it’s almost a surprise they’ve survived given the help they need…ahem. Enough said and no spoilers, but reading about what it takes to bring a healthy Alpaca baby into the world was a real eye-opener for me.

As for the cats that grace the title of this book, I take my hat off to Alan and Lorna for their compassion and kindness to these feral but enchanting creatures. Alan and Lorna live their life far from the madding crowd and I can well understand how difficult it must be to go to the city and be part of the normal throngs of people after living in such an isolated place. It sounds like heaven to me! I shall now look forward to the next book.
