"Charming, witty, and winning...[A] delightful sequel."
Norton charmed even the most avowed cat haters in the bestselling THE CAT WHO WENT TO PARIS. Now, in Peter Gethers' and Norton's further adventures, the extraordinary feline with the great Scottish Fold ears, is hightailing it to the south of France--and making pit stops all over the globe (with his favorite human, of course). Along the way, Norton and his human companion face change and learn to understand the problems and the pleasure that come with growing up and growing older together. Like its predecessor, A CAT ABROAD is funny, touching, and wise.

Aug 02, 1993 – The line between cute and twee is easy to cross when writing a cat book, and Gethers steers a precarious course between the two. Then again, that may be the cat's doing. Norton, Gethers's Scottish Fold, lacks most of the feline foibles that would give him a certain universal resonance. The cat is told just once not to scratch the furniture in the 300-year-old house that Gethers rents for the year with girlfriend Janis and thereafter (remember, Crown classifies this as Nonfiction/Pets), Norton does not scratch the furniture . Norton runs away one time--but waits for Gethers to trot down the block and pick him up. For readers with real cats--psychotically territorial, determinedly sedentary and often a tad snitty--Norton will seem like a small dog who has had a lot of plastic surgery. On the other hand, Gethers sans chat is often funny, self-deprecating and loves food, which makes him a fitting guide to the over-chronicled byways of Southern France. As the former head of Villard and Random House editor-at-large, Gethers's recollections of the publication of his earlier book, The Cat Who Went to Paris , makes interesting reading for publishing types.
