Siamese cats are demanding characters but Kym was in a league of his own: noisy, aggressive, insisting always on having his own way, greedy and obstreperous. He lived in very close conjunction with his mistress, not because she wanted it that way but because he didn't give her any choice. When crossed, he deliberately kicked the china ornaments to destruction until they had to be permanently replaced by wooden ones. He went away with Joyce's family, travelling all over Great Britain, first in a caravan and then later in the family boat. His curious and accident-prone, he frequently embarrassed his owners and, even when he was an old cat, he still contrived to get into dangerous mischief. For all that, all the Stranger family agree that there can never be another like Kym. He was quite a cat.
