The author & her husband bought Sugieh, their first Siamese kitten, to deal with an invasion of mice. Sugieh brought bedlam to a quiet country home, & when she herself had kittens, life became more riotous than ever. After Sugieh's tragic death, her offspring Solomon & Sheba stayed on, doggedly determined to keep the Siamese flag flying. http://www.life-with-siamese-cats.com/doreen-tovey.html
I'm not certain which spelling is correct, but would venture to say it must be a Chinese or Siamese name or word. I searched with both spellings and neither brings up any sites in English that explain the meaning of the name.
