I cannot tell you where I found out about the title of this book. I can tell you, that when I heard about the book I borrowed it from the library immediately. Who could resist a book titled The Cat Who Went to Paris? For anyone who likes or loves cats this is one of the more charming kitty books I have read. After all how many cats go to Paris?

I enjoyed this book so much I was reading passages aloud to my husband. He took one look at the title and announced that he knew why I was reading the book. Author Gethers is given Norton a 6 month old Scottish Fold kitten from his girlfriend. For a man who disliked cats he became an cat aficionado. Little did Norton know the adventure he was about to embark on.

Norton is not really a cat, he is part doggy, part human and full of love and life. Norton was quite happy to sit in Gether's pocket and go on expeditions around NYC. Amazingly Norton was always happy to be sitting on Gether's lap whether he was dining out in Paris or flying over on the Concorde. Gether's tales of Norton's aviation adventures are enough to make me fly Air France all the time. On one American airline flight the stewardess lost her mind when she saw Norton sitting on Gether's lap. Apparently the FAA is concerned about pets and food being in close proximity. Meanwhile on Air France, Norton was treated like a frequent flyer. At French restaurants he would be given his own chair and meals. And of course the maids at the hotel would turn down the sheets for Norton and always be in the room playing with him.

Amazingly Norton would always respond to his name when called. No matter where Gether's and Norton would be, whether it be a hotel, a conference or the hotel in Paris, Norton would go out for a stroll and come home when beckoned.

I have never heard of a cat named Norton before. He truly sounds like an adorable kitty.

My thoughts on this book, This is a lemon pastry from my favorite bakery in Paris.
