    great book

    'Cat Abroad,' is a very funny cleaver written book. Peter Gethers is a great writer and this book is excellent. All his books with the adventures of his cute and endearing cat Norton I highly recommend . It's a must read for cat lovers.

    Hey! All Ailurophiles, Don't Miss This!

    Wow! It was wonderful to read the further adventures of Norton. Without question, Norton captures the hearts and minds of all who meet him! His name should have been 'Your Majesty!' He took his subject, Peter Gethers, to the most exciting and exotic places! Norton will definitely warm your heart and tickle your funny bone. I look forward to the final Norton story (and hopefully will not have to wait too long)!

    Almost as Good as the Original

    I loved this book almost as much as Gethers's first book about Norton, The Cat Who Went to Paris. It's hard not to feel jealous of the author: not only does he spend a year in beautiful Provence and tour other parts of Europe, he gets to travel with his beloved and unique feline friend. At times, the entire book seems like one long digression, and occasionally the writing is a little sloppy (it seems like less revision was involved). But I'm picky about that kind of thing, and I really enjoyed the book overall. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone interested in cats and/or Western Europe!

    Unbelievably funny and heart warming

    I cracked up continually reading this book. I'm a cat nut, so it doesn't hurt..but Peter's beautiful descriptions of a year living in France was wonderful in and of itself, let alone the many cat adventures along the way. I treasure all of the Norton books.
