9780091933296: A Cat Called Norton: The True Story of an Extraordinary Cat and His Imperfect Human

Peter was a confirmed loner and cat hater, until he was given a small, grey (and impeccably handsome) kitten with folded ears by his then girlfriend. The girlfriend went but Norton stayed - in fact, he and Peter became inseparable. Trotting along beside him down the street, having his own chair in restaurants or sitting on Peter's lap on plane journeys, Norton made his presence felt and Peter was a loner no more. But, after learning how to love his cat, would Peter now learn how to love another human too?

About the Author:

Peter Gethers has spent ten years chronicalling the life of his extraordinary cat. When he has free time, he's a novelist, publisher and screenwriter. He lives in New York City, Sag Harbor and Sicily.

Review:

"Peter Gethers' trio of books about the globe-trotting Norton are witty and warm. We not only learn of Norton's sweet personality but also about the author's feelings about what really matters when it comes to love and cats" -- Vicki Myron, author of DEWEY "A charming and heartening account" * Kirkus Reviews * "Norton is clearly a charmer, and Gethers tells his story with contagious affection....Will warm the heart of any confirmed cat-lover" * Washington Post Book World * "A delight. Norton, the cat, brings Gethers to some of life's great lessons ... He teaches Gethers the value of real commitments and the value of love" -- Rita Mae and Sneaky Pie Brown * Los Angeles Times Book Review * "An entertaining romp that leaves no doubt that Mr Gethers and his cat have a most remarkable relationship" * New York Times Book Review *
