"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.

Peter Gethers has spent almost a decade chronicling the life of his extraordinary cat. When he has some free time, he's also a novelist, publisher, and screenwriter. Under the pseudonym Russell Andrews, he has written the bestselling thrillers Gideon and Icarus. He lives in New York City, Sag Harbor, and, luckily, Sicily.From Kirkus Reviews:
The humorous and touching memoirs of a man and his cat--a Scottish Fold named Norton who travels everywhere, especially deep into this reformed cat-hater's heart. When Gethers--publisher (Villard books), novelist (Getting Blue, 1987, etc.), and screen-writer--receives Norton as a present from a girlfriend, he's less than enthusiastic--but not for long. Though the girlfriend eventually goes by the wayside, Gethers and the cat fast become pals. Soon the highly personable puss is accompanying the not-quite-as-personable Gethers everywhere--to parties, Fire Island vacations, and business trips abroad (to work on screenplays with Roman Polanski)--and making friends with everyone from flight attendants to hotel managers. (Norton goes on beach walks with Gethers, romps around on Parisian rooftops, and generally leads as daring and worldly a life as is possible for a house pet.) Finally, after a series of failed human relationships, Gethers finds his true love, Janis, who takes years of convincing- -from human and feline (Norton is smitten with her, too)--that this is the real thing. After a happy/sad recounting of the death of Gethers's father, there's an upbeat ending: Gethers, Janis, and Norton settle into a cozy old house on Long Island. Aside from some repetition--Norton does many of the same endearing things wherever he goes--a charming and heartening account. (Line drawings.) -- Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP.
