    1. This series of books, as a whole, has been a delight. A mix of text that covers a concise history of the buildings, the families and the cats who live there. The photographs take the spot light, however - beautiful architecture, even lovelier gardens, and best of all -the cats. I did have to giggle over Bodmin - his name, and why he was named that. What a great name or a black cat.
