Overview

"Norton is clearly a charmer, and Gethers tells his story with contagious affection....Will warm the heart of any confirmed cat-lover."
THE WASHINGTON POST BOOK WORLD
Before Peter Gethers met Norton, the publisher, screenwriter, and author was a confirmed cat-hater. Then everything changed. Peter opened his heart to the Scottish Fold kitten and their adventures to Paris, Fire Island, and in the subways of Manhattan took on the color of legend and mutual love. THE CAT WHO WENT TO PARIS proves that sometimes all it takes is paws and personality to change a life.

At one time, publisher and author Peter Gethers was a confirmed cat hater. That changed when a Scottish Fold kitten named Norton entered his life. When Gethers opened his heart to the feisty gray feline, he learned a thing or two about himself--and he and his new companion soon became inseparable. Illustrated.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Gethers, publisher of Villard Books, was an aileurophobe until he met the six-week-old Scottish Fold kitten, a gift from his friend Cindy. He capitulated immediately. From the beginning Norton exhibited extraordinary aplomb no matter where he was, or in whose company; he was sensitive, intelligent and always aware of what was happening. Norton accompanied Gethers everywhere--to the office, to parties, on business trips to Los Angeles and Paris, on weekends to Fire Island; hotel staff and airline personnel were eager to serve him. Like Cleveland Amory's cat, Polar Bear, Norton became a social arbiter who influenced his owner's love life. What a pet. What a tale. Illustrated. BOMC selection. Sept.
Library Journal
Librarians have already been charmed by Scottish fold cats via those literary trademark kitties, Baker and Taylor. Now the reading public is about to be introduced to the ``folds.'' Gethers, a book publisher, is your typical cat hater who had a conversion after receiving Norton. Norton enjoys everything the average cat disdains--riding in a car, airplane, boat; walking on the beach; and interacting with strangers. Gethers's almost excessive devotion to Norton may puzzle some readers, but most cat lovers will be entertained by the gregarious antics of globe-trotting, party-animal Norton. Comparison will be made to Cleveland Amory's Cat Who Came for Christmas LJ 10/1/87, but Gethers has a more contemporary lifestyle and writing style. Cat lovers at public libraries will demand this title, and as librarians we need to share our own infatuation with Scottish folds with our readers. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 5/15/91.-- Eva Lautemann, DeKalb Coll. Lib., Clarkston, Ga.
School Library Journal
YA-- Two pet owners tell of their talented animals in relaxed, entertaining ways. Gethers's style is extremely light and at times funny as he tells how Norton taught him to like cats, how easily this feline made friends with airline crews, explored Parisian rooftops, and stood vigil at the death of his owner's father. Blind actor-musician Tom Sullivan relates, through White, how he had to let Dinah train him as she was so much more capable than his previous guide dog. Chapters of Gethers's book open with appealing line-drawing caricatures; the photographs in Leading Lady appear in a centerfold. Animal lovers are sure to enjoy these stories of almost unbelievably skilled pets. --Claudia Moore, W. T. Woodson High School, Fairfax, VA
From the Publisher
“Peter Gethers’ trio of books about the globe-trotting Norton are witty and warm. One not only learns of Norton’s sweet personality but also about the author’s not-so-cynical genuine feelings about what really matters when it comes to love and cats.”—Vicki Myron-,author of Dewey: the Small Town Library Cat who Touched the Worllk

    Fun, Light Reading

    This book will make you want to run right out and buy a Scottish Fold cat. But in your heart of hearts, you will know that Norton, this book's subject, is truly unique. I found some of the anecdotes almost unbelievable, but even if they're not 100% true, they are terrifically fun to read.

    Amazing

    I never thought that I'd like a book about a CAT. I'm not a cat-hater, but I figured it wouldn't be interesting or fun to read. But, as it turns out, it is. Mr. Gethers has an excellent sense of humor, and he wrote a magnificent book. I'd reccommend it to anyone. Its one of my favorite books now.

    Calling all ailurophiles!

    What a wonderful, funny, loving book. I would be impossible not to fall in love with Norton. While I can't agree with Mr. Gethers that Norton is the smartest, most wondeful, adorable cat that ever lived (because my own nine feline companions are), I would have to say he is definitely a 10! This was a most enjoyable read!

    FOREVER NORTON, FINALLY IN EBOOK FORM

    In the 90's this was a must read for cat lovers. The charm of Norton AND Paris.For a long time this book was not available as an e book. Probably some legal dispute. But now it is and worth the wait. This is the first in a series of 3 books about the adorable Scottish Fold cat, Norton. The second is A CAT ABROAD followed by the tear jerker, THE CAT WHO'LL LIVE FOREVER. Author Gethers is a little self indulgent in these books leaving you wishing for a little more Norton or even a lot more Norton. However, still amusing, entertaining and very endearing. Don't miss out on Norton, a cat book classic. And now as an ebook, Norton can be in your pocket too, just as he was in Gethers'.
